Gay Pride and Prejudice Reviewed at Affinity E-Books

Terry Baker, a prolific reader and reviewer of lesbian fiction, as well as someone who has been very supportive of my own books in the past, was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule and talk about Gay Pride & Prejudice on her reviews page at Affinity Press.

Here’s an excerpt:

This is a wonderfully refreshing and cleverly written new take on a much loved classic. I think Kate chose exactly the right characters to write in as gay. She didn’t make the story all about the gay characters, which simply wouldn’t have sounded right. The dialogue is written in the style of the time the original book was written.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even though I’ve never been too fond of reading the classics, I much prefer the film versions… I would love to see this version of Pride and Prejudice made in to a film or even a TV drama.

I told Terry that I thoroughly agree that it would be wonderful to see the queer film version of Pride and Prejudice–particularly if Keira Knightley could be convinced to reprise her role as Elizabeth! But who to play her love interest, Caroline Bingley?

Any suggestions? Let me know…

    Hi Kate, it is super to get a great review. Been thinking of your challenge of would could play Caroline, I would like to suggest Heather Peace, she is a very good actress and singer/songwriter recent credit, playing Sam in the British lesbian series Lip Service: I think you would enjoy her in the role. E

    • Thanks for introducing me to Lip Service, Eileen. I’ve been sick for the last week or so, and very glad to find both season one and two of the series online. Just finished the second episode of season two–did not see that shocker coming! Very sad. But that’s what happens when actresses take other jobs, I suppose… Sam is indeed quite “fit,” as more than one character has noted!

    I can see Rachel McAdams as Caroline, she was so good as Irene Adler in Sherlock Holmes

    I second Rachel!
