Halloo All, Before I get back to normal blogging I thought I’d show you the reviews my publisher has collected on The Widow’s Redeemer to show you how it’s gone down so far: Madison Street Publishing – The book has been well received by reviewers. In a pre-publication review, InD’Tale Magazine applauded it as a story “filled withContinue reading “Reviews of The Widow’s Redeemer”

I really hope so…isContinue reading “ARCs, Full Book Cover and a Juicy Excerpt!”

Aristocracy in the Regency

Who were the aristocracy? We hear a lot about Dukes, Earls, Viscounts etc in Regency Romances and even in the classics don’t we? This prolific use of aristocrats within the Regency genre can lead to a romanticised view of the aristocracy. With so many books crammed full of Dukes, Earls and Marquesses it’s easy toContinue reading “Aristocracy in the Regency”

My Bonnie Light Horseman… A ‘lite’ look at British Cavalry – Jonathan Hopkins

Haloo All! I am pleased to be introducing onto my blog this week, Jonathan Hopkins, a 19th Century cavalry expert and author of the Cavalry Tales series. This week, right here, right now, as a very apt follow-on from Bennett’s previous blog on the Napoleonic Wars, Jonathan delves, rather humorously, into the lives of realContinue reading “My Bonnie Light Horseman… A ‘lite’ look at British Cavalry – Jonathan Hopkins”

Let’s take a break…

So, I have started a series on the Regency and being as I’ve posted all of two posts, I think it’s time for a break. Haha! Yes, I am laughing in a mischieviously cheeky way. The thing is, to be quite frank, I’m tired. If I used profanity on a regular basis I guess IContinue reading “Let’s take a break…”

Fat Prince George : Portrait of a Regent

Fat Prinny George is one of those memorable monarchs. He may not be on par with King Henry VIII and his many wives, but Georgie Porgie certainly did cause quite as much talk as the much-married King. He was Regent over the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 1811-1820 (the Regency) and becameContinue reading “Fat Prince George : Portrait of a Regent”

What’s So Special About The Regency Era?

I have, in point of fact, already blogged about this subject once before. Upon reading aforementioned blog however, I was disappointed with it. I really had not done the era justice and as such (as well as the fact I am a Regency Romance novelist and shall never tire of blogging on the time period),Continue reading “What’s So Special About The Regency Era?”

History Is Boring

My last post contained the announcement that my Regency Romance, The Debtor’s Redeemer, is getting published and will be available later in 2012! Woop! So, history is boring. Now, I don’t mean to be mean but whenever someone says that to me I think, HOW!!!!! Are you insane? Do you not know anything? Have youContinue reading “History Is Boring”
