#LoveRomance – Miles Franklin, a Mills and Boon author by another name

An Australian classic gets a chicklit romance makeover.

This week, we’re asking readers who plan to attend SWF to leave specially designed postcards at common areas, empty seats and any other places that other attendees might serendipitously find them. If you plan to attend SWF and would like to help out by leaving postcards in places other readers might find them, send an email to kat@bookthingo.com.au

Our first #loveromance cover remix reveal features an Australian classic, My Brilliant Career by Miles Franklin, re-imagined as a chicklit romance. It was the obvious choice, really. Our most prestigious literary prize is named after the author, yet it’s a little-known fact that Franklin wrote a book published by Mills and Boon, The Net of Circumstance, under the pseudonym Mr and Mrs Ogniblat.

You can check out some quotes from the book here, and you can download the book from Project Gutenberg. (Note: Definitely not a romance.) This cover was designed by the very talented Jennifer Wu. You can find out more about her work here.
