Today is Historical Romance Day all over the Internet. Those who love historical romance, both readers and writers, are posting memes. We're using the hashtags #whyIwritehistoricals and #whyIreadhistoricals.
(It's so hard to type those without putting spaces between the words!)
Anyway, go on Twitter or Facebook or Tumbler or wherever you hang out and get involved! Too many people haven't sampled the joy that is historicals, poor dears, so it's our job to encourage them.
(It's hard to believe, but when I was young, I thought sexiness started in the 20th century. Before that, everyone was pure. Um, no.)
Here are some #whyIreadhistoricals memes:
You'll find plenty more where readers and writers of historicals hang out. Have a happy historical day!
Today I'm the guest of the Bluestocking Belles at their Teatime Tattler. They ask for a piece of original writing, so I had fun doing this one!! It's related to Lady of the Flames, but the character who's speaking is Dunstan Tull, the compiler of an encyclopedia of not-so-mythical beings. Some of his definitions are found at the beginning of my Bayou Gavotte books, which take place 200 years later. I wonder if Dunstan is a time traveler... I'm pretty sure he has visited the house below.
