LOL on Angelique. I came to them very late in life and left them very quickly. Your assessment works for me.

There's a blog in that--why do we all love Mr. Darcy? And yes, it upset me when Jo didn't understand Laurie's devotion and worth! Silly woman. ;)

oh now there's an excellent hero point we should look at--hero's with skills! That's a real manly man to me, you're right.

Having written one of those books recently (Wicked Wyckerly), I know how hard it is to create a conflict that keeps the pages turning when one of the protagonists has already surrendered to love. ;) But I do love a determined hero!

Sigh, I installed AdBlockPlus at the wrong time! It won't allow me to pop up the photos to see the details. (Yet ads still pop out at me elsewhere!) But I really wouldn't want to have been a seamstress in any of those eras. Can you just imagine all the hand sewing? And no one ever got carpal tunnel?

Oh, well done, Joanna! And let's make certain we post when Joan's book is finally available! I've read all Joan's books, in every era--which is so utterly unusual for me that it really says a lot about Joan as a writer. Joan, wonderful to see you here! Make sure we know when that Regency hits the websites!

Fabulous post! Uniforms really don't turn me on as much as a good Beau Brummel elegant frock coat and stock, but I love the details.

Love the uniform update, Shannon! Nelson probably wasn't too concerned about infrared, but those fungal infections... What a thing to have to think about in uniforms!

I adore Emma Bull! And I think Gail has been classified as Steam Punk because of the setting, but really, there's no reason urban fantasy can't be historical, right? And yes, I think these books define the protagonist's abilities and then throw up roadblocks instead of allowing them to jump the shark. Although I've set Tina up to gain more abilities as time goes on. But they'll just make life more complicated!

fantasy romance works for me! Will have to take a look at TWK!

Most excellent quality authors! I got into elves with Tolkien and appreciate Pratchett's take on the whole kingdom of Others, but I don't think I could write fantasy on that level. That doesn't keep me from reading it!

there can never be too many recommendations of Patricia Briggs. And thank you, thank you! There's enough evil in the world without need of vampires.

As usual, you have most excellent taste! I love all the authors you've listed. Have you tried Patricia Briggs? She's my idol.

I need to look into these but from what I'm seeing online, these are set in a fantasy world. Urban fantasy tends to be set in the real world with fantasy aspects. I'm not fond of dystopian. I want people struggling to fix the world we're in. But I love a good fantasy world too!

I’ve always interspersed my historical romance writing with other genres to prevent becoming too jaded, but now I have to go further and further afield to keep my imagination entertained. Continue reading

Sorry I haven't been here to comment. It's 100 degrees here and we have no a/c. I'm down at the harbor with a really bad wifi right now, checking in!

Maybe I always knew, at heart, that I was going to be a writer. At age five, I spent hours writing and illustrating books. Continue reading

which leads to another interesting aspect...it sounds as if you may lean toward biography and nonfiction. Not all of us are creative writers. Is a biographer a writer? Or does that designation only go to creatives? I like a wide open definition of a writer, so I'd say you were one tood.

And I say you're a writer! Just not a published one, yet. But it does seem that those of us who get hung up on the research are less likely to pursue the creative world, which is why you found so many errors in the published books. (wink)

Even after we're published, we learn to evade the "what do you do?" conversation stopper. Looks like you're already on top of that one!

And we're all glad you kept trying! Have you ever gone back and look at those historicals and thought about indie pubbing them? Thanks for stopping by Kathy!

There's a school of thought that says that if you write, you're a writer. While I wouldn't argue with that, I think there's a difference between calling yourself a writer and simply writing; I cook every day, but I don't call myself a cook. Continue reading

As a child, I had no books of my own, but a neighbor had a huge library I lusted after. And on the bottom shelves were beautiful hard bound shelves of fairy tale. I'd go over to pretend to visit with the kids and sneak off to read them! They have so many, many purposes, but it's never a bad thing to stretch the imagination.
