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”

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!!!”

US & UK Kindle GIVEAWAY of The Widow’s Redeemer! 1st June – 14th June

Hallooo all! Now, I have been somewhat buried – that’s right, literally buried – in edits of my new manuscript, and as you have seen, I’ve come up for air to share excerpts of Miss Rotherham that I’ve edited and to host brilliantly written guest posts like Rosanne E. Lortz’s one 🙂 To apologise forContinue reading “US & UK Kindle GIVEAWAY of The Widow’s Redeemer! 1st June – 14th June”

I have also been remembering recently that I promised a series onContinue reading “Emerging from Editing for an Excerpt – Miss Rotherham”

A Regency Heroine: Letty Burton

 ‘Determined, strong, good; a woman of indomitable spirit.’ Yep. That’s me. What a great description. Wait, wait, wait; woah, woah woah! I think…I THINK I may have gotten that wrong. Yes, in fact, I’m sure. You see, when I write (which is whenever I get the chance), I tend to write my heroines as theContinue reading “A Regency Heroine: Letty Burton”

6048 Hours

Thanks to the idea in my last post, in 6048 Hours = 252 Days = 36 weeks = 9 months… Well actually, seeing as it’s February already I’m giving myself 8 months = 32 weeks = 224 days = 5376 hours to write a minimum of 3 books but hopefully more…. Impressive? Well, only ifContinue reading “6048 Hours”

The First In A Series

Hey, so I’ve realised that writing a book is hard. It’s really quite hard. Now I’m not exactly talking about scrawling a few lines down that you happened to think sound nice. Or even writing half a book before getting side-tracked or bored. I’m talking about writing a whole entire novel, reading, re-reading, revising, re-revisingContinue reading “The First In A Series”
