I suppose resolutions are in order

I suppose resolutions are in order. This is the time when on my blog I should tell you that I will, in 2015, be blogging thrice a day, that they will be stirring, inspiring and utterly motivational, that I will have them hand-delivered via carrier-pigeon… or does that make them bird-claw-delivered? I don’t know. IContinue reading “I suppose resolutions are in order”

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…”

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…”

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!!!”

Dressing a Regency Woman

This blog post aims to give you a brief outline of how a Regency woman would be dressed. The thing is, so many authors assume their readers know what a spencer jacket is, what a shift is, what stays are, and if you don’t you feel rather silly asking! I myself will admit, for theContinue reading “Dressing a Regency Woman”

Castles, Customs & Kings – STOP The Presses….actually….START All The Presses!

Now I have been remiss, no, not just remiss, I have been appallingly, devastatingly, rubbishly, remiss in telling anyone about the wonderful book Castles, Customs and Kings (Madison Street Publishing, 2012), which contains, among the hundreds of finely penned articles, an historical article by yours truly! So exciting, and why haven’t I mentioned this properly before?Continue reading “Castles, Customs & Kings – STOP The Presses….actually….START All The Presses!”

The Guilt of Writing

I have realised recently, both from my own experience and from hearing about the experiences of others, that there really is a lot of guilt going hand-in-hand with writing for some authors. It can sound fanciful to some, but it to others it can be something which dries up the flow of inspiration and makesContinue reading “The Guilt of Writing”

Writing that second book…

Hello all, I am back from the land of editing for a while and have thus been writing a few blog posts as well I should considering how I’ve neglected to it so! Something randomly funny for you: As an introduction back into blogging I thought I’d write about something I’ve recently realised. Since havingContinue reading “Writing that second book…”
