, , , , , , ,

Naked_Teaser[1]Oh, me hearties, you’re in for a treat. Captain Jack netted a very fine catch on board ship today. Join him as he interviews Author Alexandra Christian for a very rousing good time.

Jack: “Ahoy, Lady Alexandra! What a pleasure it is to have ye aboard. Imagine me surprise to learn ye enjoy ‘love monkeys’.” Shivers and aims pistol at movement in the rigging. “I’ve got one shot that won’t work on an undead monkey. Darn thing keeps pilferin’ me effects. Which brings me to me first question. Every pirate what’s ever been born steered their life by a compass. When ye were born, where did yer compass point to, eh?”

Alexandra: “Those curls at the base of Benedict Cumberbatch’s skull.” Continue reading

Katherine Bone meets Thomas Jefferson at Embracing Romance!


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

I experienced a once in a lifetime opportunity this weekend. I met President Thomas Jefferson! Woo-hoo!!! Well, I should add I actually met famed historical scholar Bill Barker, who portrays Jefferson, 1800-1808, and is associated with Colonial Williamsburg. What a thrill!

The event I attended was West Point’s 250th Founders Day celebration. (Happy Birthday, West Point! Go Army! Beat Navy!) Mr. Barker, dressed in period costume, never once stepped out of character throughout the night. And you can imagine my glee when I discovered Barker was in attendance. His clothing, his mannerisms, everything about his speech and sentence structure, reminded me of characters in the series I’ve written, 1801-1810 England.

The Biggest Near-Disasters of Only A Mistress Will Do by Jenna Jaxon!


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

We’re in for a BIG treat today, me hearties! Author Jenna Jaxon is back to tell us about her latest release, ONLY A MISTRESS WILL DO!

Welcome, Lady Jenna!

Ahoy! I know I could read a book I’ve written (probably any other book as well) and no matter how many times I read the copy, I’ll find something new to change with each reading. Usually these are very minor—one space too many, a letter left off a word, a space needed between two words.

Back in October, when I was doing the final galley proofs for Only A Mistress Will Do, I ran into some truly major mistakes that could have been disastrous had I not caught them on the final round through the book. I fault no one but myself because we all read the manuscript numerous times and none of us caught these until the penultimate moment. (I won’t go back and read it again for fear I’ll find something else I missed and it’s too late!) Continue reading

Georgian Era Commerce

FANtastic historical information about the London Docks! I’ll share Part II tomorrow. Thanks bunches, Author Regina Jeffers!

ReginaJeffers's Blog

man-hands-forming-brackets-word-e-commerce-written-them1-630x350Before the later part of the Georgian Period in England few buildings/structures specifically designed for trade and commerce existed. One need only to look at the timber wharfs of the Port of London to understand the haphazard way the people took up the need to greet the large number of ships arriving from around the world. Merchants often had their offices in the ground floors of their abodes. Shops were often no more than the front room of a house with a large window for display purposes. Warehouses were kept in cellars or outbuildings. Markets appeared on streets or upon a square, and businessmen had stalls or wagons or carts from which they conducted transactions. Only custom houses and exchanges were built specifically for business.
