  1. I have a question for all of the Wenches and any other authors out there and I don’t know where to put it, so I’ll put it here and trust that Sherri can rearrange if necessary!
    I was reading “The Bronte Project” and came across this quote:
    C. Bronte to Mrs. Gaskell, 1853
    “Do you – who have so many friends, so large a circle of acquaintance – find it easy, when you sit down to write – to isolate yourself from all those ties and their sweet associations – as to be quite your own woman – uninfluenced, unswayed by the consciousness of how your work may affect other minds – what blame, what sympathy it may call forth?”
    That, essentially, is my question for you Wenches. Do you write for some vague “audience” somewhere “out there?” Are you ever distracted by thinking of how this person or that person will react when they read your work? Have you ever put major bits of someone you know into a character and wondered if anyone you know would notice?
    I love to explore how writers write and the mental processes they have to go through to complete a work, so if you have time and inclination, I’d love some insight into your brains.:)
    Thanks.

  6. Well, I have asked Sherrie to redraw and select another winner in my place, as I know I already have all Edith’s books back to the beginning.
    Question for Edith: I see that several authors (Mary Balogh for one) who have the rights back to their early Signets are getting them republished or issued as e-books, and I wonder if/when you will do the same? Your early books have an intensity, a complexity and a subtle humor that is not common today, and they deserve more exposure.

  11. I agree with Janice. I especially would like to see a collection of your novellas from the Signet Regency and Victorian anthologies.
    Would it be permissible to ask for a copy of the new one when it comes out, instead of a copy of an older one? I’m pretty sure I have them all (two copies of some!), though I have no idea where my copy of THE CAD is, as it has been filed with extreme prejudice.
