Writing a book seems to take forever, months and months, and then, all of a sudden, it's HERE.
Today my latest historical romance, A WICKED PURSUIT, goes on sale everywhere. Thanks to the internet, it truly is everywhere at midnight, in paperback, ebook, and audiobook formats.
Set in Georgian England, this is the first in a new series for me featuring the three sons of the Duke of Breconridge. A WICKED PURSUIT introduces the oldest of the three brothers, Harry Fitzroy, whose carefree life comes to a crashing end when he suffers a disastrous fall from his horse – and finds love with Lady Augusta Weatherby, a most unexpected lady. I have to admit that while Harry is a charmer, Gus is one of my favorite heroines. She's loyal, generous, and stunningly efficient, kind to dogs and wandering musicians alike. And she knits.
I'll be sharing some of my background research for the book here on the blog over the next few weeks, too. My Nerdy History Girl side knows there's still more fascinating historical *stuff* that the Novelist side of me didn't include, and figures you'd probably be interested in that, too.
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.
