BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT = New Release: Silver Belles and Stetsons, a Cowboy Christmas Anthology with 10 novellas from 10 different authors. My sincere thanks and appreciation to an unknown reader who posted a favorable review on Goodreads for The Drifter’s Proposal, my contribution to the anthology [which released three weeks ago on its own]. My heartfelt appreciation to readers who purchased both the anthology and the single title–simply to show support.
I’m delighted to announce my affiliation with the Sweet Americana Sweethearts Blog. It features authors of Sweet & Clean romances set throughout North America between the years of 1820 and 1920.
Fans of Western Historical Romance, particularly Mail Order Bride-themed romances will find this nonfiction volume by Chris Enss an enlightening and entertaining read.
Today’s post is my contribution to the world-wide movement from Historical Romance Network to share why authors and readers choose historical romance. Today, Friday, May 29th, 2015, Authors will post and tweet and share their own reasons why Historical Romance matters to them. Today, May 29th, 2015, is also the day readers of Historical Romance will share why they love the genre, what draws them into historical settings of all kinds, and why they love Historical Romance!
READERS ASK: how much research does it take to produce an historical romance?
MY ANSWER: it depends on many aspects.
It depends on how much the author already knows about the setting, the era, the political climate, well-known (at least to those versed in history) events that coincide with the book’s time line.
