Tuesday Tidbits

Apologies for the shoddy housekeeping around here! I'm in deep deadline do-do and have been blazing my way across the keyboard. The good news is Pride and Passion is coming along nicely, and even better, it's turned out to be deep and dark, and emotionally wrangling, and sexy as heck, too! So, I'm feeling good about that. I am NOT feeling good though about getting four hours of sleep a night and living on coffee!

So, I got an exciting email a few days ago. Some more nominations for Sinful, and the first one for LUST! Yeah! So, over at The Romance Reviews Sinful has been nominated for best Erotic Historical Romance for 2010, and Lust has been nominted for best Erotic Paranormal/Fantasy Romance! I'm tickled pink! And if you're interested, you can click this link The Romance Reviews and vote for one of them, or both. No pressure! lol!

So, on to the next tidbit. Has anyone heard that there is a new version of Jane Eyre in the offing next week? OMG, I love Jane Eyre--I don't care how many versions come out, I'll watch every one of them. Jane is probably my most favorite character in all the world, and Jane Eyre is right up there in for one of my all time favorite books. The Bronte's are definitely my favorite literary authors--I love the bleakness, the drama, the melancholy, the over-the top depths of despair, and the bosom heaving romance! When we go to England this year, I'll definitely be visiting the Bronte Parsonage. I feel such a deep connection with Charlotte Bronte, and I can't wait to tred the floors that she did!

Jane..what can I say about her, she's a perfect mix of strength and vulnerability, of feminism and steel core. i love that she is plain, and unassuming, and that Rochester is completely smitten by her. I love the ugly duck trope, and the one in Jane Eyre is in my estimation perfect. I cannot wait for it to come out, and only hope that it will make it a theatre close to me!

In case you haven't heard of this new version, then feast on these treats!
All the best, and be well!

And my favorite dialogue in the whole book!

WooHoo!!! Way to go Charlotte!! Big congratulations on your nominations!!
Thanks for the heads up on the new Jane Eyre movie. I had no idea another one was being made.
The clip was awesome, now I can't wait to see it.

Barbara, thanks! I'm so pleased that readers and reviewers enjoyed Sinful. That really is a book of my heart--the same as Addicted.

Jane Eyre...sigh...you have GOT to watch it. So beautiful. Have the kleenex handy!

Dalila, thanks! I'm tickled pink to have Sinful recognized. And Jane Eyre...are you a fan, too? I just love that story. I fell in love with it when I read it for the first time when I was 14. Even then Jane pulled at my heart strings, and Rochestor made me sigh!

Charlotte Featherstone said...

Hey Heidi! Thanks for stopping by! Yeah, I'm trying to coerce Mr. Charlotte into going, but he claims he's already seen every Jane Eyre known to man, and the story never changes! lol! Damn men!
I think I'll bring my mum with me. We're always up for watching period dramas together!

Congrats on your nominations, Charlotte!
Love the girl in the last clip. She is so good in ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
I have never read or seen Jane Eyre. But if it comes on TV I'll watch it. Or I just might have to go to the bookstore and buy a copy. Such a hardship! lol!
