Another year…

Another year is slipping rapidly away and amidst the warm glow of fairy lights and the excitement of soon-to-be-opened-presents, I find myself looking back on a busy and interesting time. A great many things have happened this year, some good and some sad. I was happy to see my second novel The Unexpected Earl come out andContinue reading “Another year…”

A Faithful Confidant…

That is, I believe, a just description of Peter Highsmith. No title to bear his name high, but a fortune large enough to compliment any young woman who would bear his name herself, Highsmith is a very amiable gentleman. He has an attractive masculine frame and a pleasant manner which has led to more thanContinue reading “A Faithful Confidant…”

A University Friend…

When I began writing (now I have mentioned this before but bear with me), I have to be honest, my hero and heroine were the characters I concerned myself most with and to be honest, the ones I liked the most. As I’ve continued to write however, I have found my peripheral characters become farContinue reading “A University Friend…”

An Impetuous Heroine…

As promised, I am here again to introduce you to my heroine. I know, I’m as surprised as you, my blogging habits are shockingly irregular normally, but this perhaps shows you of my anticipation surrounding The Unexpected Earl coming out on the 20th of September. So, who is the impetuous heroine who I’ve been going onContinue reading “An Impetuous Heroine…”

An Unexpected Hero…

Well, being as my second novel is due to come out in just a little over a month I thought it was high time I started to introduce you properly to some of my characters. I know I’ve put excerpts up here before, but the truth is, characters are peculiar things to an author andContinue reading “An Unexpected Hero…”

Marie Antoinette: Queen of French Fashion

I am delighted to welcome Ginger Myrick onto my blog for a guest post and excerpt from her latest historical fiction novel exploring the life of the enigmatic Maria Antoinette – enjoy:   Marie Antoinette was perhaps most iconically known for her sense of style. Although many of the ideas of French fashion we associate withContinue reading “Marie Antoinette: Queen of French Fashion”

Meet my Main Character by Philippa Jane Keyworth

 I’ve been tagged by Rosanne E. Lortz in her post on her main character Harold Emison, Earl of Anglesford, and now it is my pleasure to introduce you to my main character in my next book, The Unexpected Earl. Instead of introducing you to my heroine, who I’ve spoken about on the blog already, I thoughtContinue reading “Meet my Main Character by Philippa Jane Keyworth”

The Unexpected Earl Cover & Blurb Reveal!!!

It’s just so exciting when your novel gets its cover. It’s like something immaterial is finally given a face and you can point to it and say, ‘that’s mine’ rather than just imagine the title and picture in your head. The Unexpected Earl, the story of a tempestuous heroine named Julia and all the scrapesContinue reading “The Unexpected Earl Cover & Blurb Reveal!!!”

Plot twists that never stop coming…

So, a FB post inspired me to write this off-the-cuff post. It is mostly about TV rather than writing but I guess it could be applied. You see, the thing is, I think the problem with TV dramas these days is that they have plot twist after plot twist, until you can’t quite remember who’sContinue reading “Plot twists that never stop coming…”
