A Royal Blunder?

A Royal Blunder?

Just the other day, I was reading a top-selling Regency book (NOT by one of the Austen Authors) and I have to confess, I’m really glad it was on Kindle Unlimited because it was…to be perfectly honest…awful. As I writer, I strive for a lot of things: authenticity and accuracy are two of them. This… more goodness …

Researching the Regency Era

Researching the Regency Era

Writing Regency novels takes much more than just loving the genre. For Jane Austen, she lived during the Regency period and, therefore, could write from her own experiences.

When Austenites Get It

Last week, I received a letter from one of my readers. This isn’t an unusual event; I receive quite a bit of correspondence from my readers.

Mansfield Park occasionally creeps into the discussion. Personally, I enjoyed Northanger Abbey much more than Persuasion and Mansfield Park. But, in my experience, very few people ever bring… more goodness …

Regency Era Fan Fiction

A few months ago, a publisher contacted me about the creation of a Plain Fame Fan Fiction World. Immediately, I said YES. I love fan fiction. Or, rather, I love well-written fan-fiction. For several years, I have been writing Jane Austen Fan Fiction, adapting her stories into an Amish setting. I saw this as an… more goodness …

Cowgirl Cat

On November 8th, something wonderful happened. No, I’m not referring to the election in the USA. I think many of us would prefer to forget about that (and I’m writing this blog BEFORE Election Day so draw your own conclusions as to what I mean…). What I’m referring to is the publication of my latest… more goodness …
