Reading and sequels

This morning I started my writing day with reading. It turns out it was quite a good idea, but if I said I did it for any other reason than to stop myself putting the tele on I’d be lying. My name is Philippa, and I am a TV addict. A book a month challengeContinue reading “Reading and sequels”

New things, old things and free things

Some of you might have been wondering where I’ve been. An occasional glance at my blog may have made you think, ‘gosh, it’s a long time since she’s posted.’ You might have even been thinking, ‘she’s not really been on FB and Twitter much! She’s been really quite quiet online.’ Others of you might beContinue reading “New things, old things and free things”

Caro Worth’s story

And there she stayed, in my mind, winding around the tables, playing another game of cards, waiting for her story to be written. She was beckoning me, and only her face, her path, was clear to me from among the blurred faces of that hell. I couldn’t ignore her, not when she dwelt in my mind, she compelled me to write her story, from that first night in the hell where we met, until…

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…”

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”
