This Friday Video also qualifies as Shameless Self-Promotion. Although my new series of historical romances (including the brand-new When the Duchess Said Yes, in stores and available for download this week) takes place in Georgian London, my publisher's publicity department is fixed firmly in the 21st century. This is the book trailer for the series – a short video for potential readers that's meant to give a quick impression of the books, to intrigue and beguile. Let the fans flutter!
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
