HarperCollins Canada is running a promotion to coincide with March Madness– a tournament which “brings together 64 of the best fiction books on the planet”– and Syrie James’s novel “The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen” is included.
Syrie has been a friend of mine for too many years to count and if you’ve got time to vote, please do. If you love Jane Austen, you will also want to order her book. She creates a romance for Jane that may be the genesis of a certain someone’s romance with a certain Mr. Darcy.
Every week from now until April 13, you can vote for the books you
think should move forward in the tournament, until there is just one
book crowned as champion.
If you liked “”The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen,” please help it along
the road to victory! It only takes a few seconds to vote. Go to
www.hccmarchmadness.ca. Click on VOTE NOW.
If pressed for time, you can skip straight to the 4th category and
just vote for “Lost Memoirs.” Please check back weekly, to vote again as the field narrows. The last time “Lost Memoirs” was in a contest, it lost by 12 votes out
of 10,000…. Thanks so much for your support!
P.S. Look for Syrie’s The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte on sale 6/30/09
