Risky Regencies


My interview went up a bit late yesterday so today I thought I would just do a commercial (Ha! bet you thought it would be an Addendum!)

Like Sarah Palin, I’m going on a book tour, but my tour is virtual, my schedule less demanding, and my visitors, undoubtedly, fewer.

Here’s my schedule:

Dec 9 Interview on Harlequin Historical Authors Facebook page
Dec 9 Article on Regency Art on Harlequin Historical Authors MySpace page

Dec 11 Article on Regency Theatre at Romance Dish
Dec 16 eHarlequin’s Holiday Open House
Dec 27 Interview at Romantic Crush Junkies

I hope you all stop by!

I was lucky enough to have Megan and Carolyn come up with questions for my interview yesterday. Weren’t they creative asking how many research books I own? I really think they thought I would go upstairs, trip over the boxes and other junk, and count every last one of those books. Not me! I did Math. I estimated.

When I have to make up questions I lack such creativity, though. So my challenge for you today is to tell us what questions you want us to ask our guest authors. If you want me to answer any of these questions I will, but mostly I want to know what you want to know!

Don’t forget to leave a comment on yesterday’s interview blog for a chance to win an autographed copy of Gallan Officer, Forbidden Lady. I’ll choose a winner after midnight tonight.

Diane, so the Jane that offered to catalogue your books was me, Jane Austen, only the Austen didn’t show this time. I foresee our only problem being that I live in NW PA and you live in DC. That’s a long commute.

I would love to know why the Regency period attracts so many authors and so many readers.

I wondered if that was you, Jane. It fit the “profile.”

Oh darn about the distance. I’d love to see what you could do for my 700 tomes.
Sigh. I’ll just hope that the Book Collector software and scanner helps.

Now…about the Regency and why it attracts so many authors and readers.

I love this question! I want to propose the Riskies do a week on this. Stay tuned.

It most certainly wasn’t me! (Jane George)
I’m an organizational nightmare and I’d take your books into the tub.

Best of Luck on your “tour!”

You may want to count those reference books some day when you have nothing better to do. Someone commented they had 200 cookbooks. That seemed like a lot and I was curious how many I had. Counting the little pamphlet style ones they totaled over 600. I was shocked. Never expected that many. the sad thing is I don’t get to cook much anymore.

Good question, Jane.

My questions: If you were to write in a genre new to you, what would you like to try? How do you think it would differ from the Regencies?

Librarypat, I figure I’ll get my total number of books if I get the Book Collector software I want for Christmas.

I’d love to write a WWII romance. I thing that era has a lot in common with the Regency and I think it has great potential for romance. I know Harlequin Historical would like to do a WWII romance, but they just haven’t seen the right one yet.
