I’m so excited because my friend Beth Keehn and I have been working so hard on this for such a long time. Take a look at our campaign page to donate and please share if you know someone who might be interested in helping us.
We’ve got teaser videos, blogs, articles and loads of free stuff coming your way if you check the Indiegogo page each week, including Georgette Heyer herself on film (well, our lovely Georgette lookalike, fellow mega-fan Helen Rose-Davidge, astro-physist by day, Heyer impersonator by night).
You’ll also catch saucy glimpses into Ruby’s boudoir. As our very own pet sugar baby, you’ll be able to hear snippets of our podcast ‘The Sugar Baby Confessionals’, a funny, poignant insider’s view of what it means to enjoy an alternative lifestyle such as hers. Learn more on my podcast page.
There’s a ton of fabulous art to be had when you donate. One of my favourite things is the art work that my mum, artist Cathy Tuson, has created just for our donors.
She’s done gorgeous watercolour lingerie images, and you’ll be able to pick your favourite colours for a loved one or to hang on your wall.
But she’s really outdone herself when it comes to her Heyero and Heyeroine images, created for series 2, ‘Heyer Today’.
Printed on gorgeous paper or card, you’ll be able to pick your favourite couple from the 13 books we cover over the podcast series and we’ll send it to you to hang on your wall.
Here’s the Devil’s Cub design:
It depicts one of my favourite scenes in which Mary, ‘incurably truthful’ as she is, is forced to shoot the hot-headed Vidal to convince him she is not to be trifled with.
Venetia is my favourite Heyer novels, and this beautiful print illustrates the scene where they first meet, just before Jasper takes ruthless advantage of her.
‘Fair Fatality, you are the most unusual female I have encountered in all my thirty-eight years!’‘You can’t think how deeply flattered I am!’ she assured him. ‘I daresay my head would be quite turned if I didn’t suspect that amongst so many a dozen or so may have slipped from your memory.’ – Venetia, Georgette Heyer
