I need to buckle down and start to work seriously on two major projects: 1. complete the wine romance novella and 2. start on the time travel romance novella.
No, I haven’t been procrastinating, I’ve been working on the Round Table Chats with some of the authors in the Christmas Pets & Kisses box set. Yes, you can take a look at them here.
On September 26, I hosted the launch party for the box set, an entire day of games and fun and getting to know some of the readers and authors participating that day.
Back to the wine romance. I’ve been slowly working on some changes between the heroes to up the stakes. For some reason my mind keeps going to the time travel novella I need to write. The main part of the story will be set in England in the Regency Period. Grace will travel there because it is her favorite historical time and she wants to experience some of the glamor and parties going on at the time. What she didn’t bank on was falling in love.
Needless to say, I’ve been doing research. What am I researching? Well, one important thing is the way they spoke back then. The slang was very different and quite bizarre if you ask me. I’ve decided I will need to use some of the slang to make the story more believable. Etiquette is also very important and I need to understand it fully. I also must have a good grasp of fashionable wear and understand what the duties and responsibilities of servants was.
If you’re interested, come back, I’ll try and report on many of my historical finds.
