I guess I'm just uncouth (and a scaredy-cat!)...for if I spotted a zombie, I'd run quickly in the other direction! :p


Winners, Winners, Winners - December 15, 2010

Thanks for hosting this interview.

I don't think I have read a Sci-Fi romance before and this sounds really interesting.

The environment I usually enjoy as the stage of my favorite romance is actually anything that makes life and the romance itself difficult for the protagonists. Maybe in the midst of war, just like in Taken to the Limit, or maybe something dating to the Middle Ages where there was really no room for romance as women were quite restrained.

The winners have been notified and have until December 22, 2010 at 11:59 PM US Eastern Time to respond or The Qwillery will be forced to randomly chose a new winner or winner.

Thank you to everyone who participated!

A Letter from Miss Elizabeth Bennet - November 19, 2010

Today I received a missive from Miss Elizabeth Bennet*. Miss Bennet wrote this letter to warn about the danger overrunning England (where she lives). That danger is dreadfuls or unmentionables or as we know them better - zombies.

It turns out that Miss Bennet has purchased a computer in order to keep all of us apprised of what is happening. You can find links to Miss Bennet's correspondence at You also can keep up with the digital goings on of Mr. Fitwilliam Darcy, Mrs. Bennet, Mr. Bennet, Mr. Bingley, Jane and Lydia Bennet, Mr. Wickham. Charlotte Lucas, and Mr. Collins. Most of them now have Facebook accounts! Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy are on Twitter as well. And for tips on how to be a lady and more, you must read Mrs. Bennet's blog - 19th Century Mombie.

Miss Bennet was also kind enough to send me a copy of Pride and Pejudice and Zombies. Since I already have a copy, I'd like to pass along the copy she sent to one commenter.

The lovely package and missive that Miss Bennet sent:

The Giveaway

A Letter from Miss Elizabeth Bennet - November 19, 2010
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton-and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Complete with 10 wonderfully graphic illustrations, this insanely funny expanded edition will introduce Jane Austen’s classic novel to new legions of fans.
