Happy Holidays! Happy Housekeeping!


By now, you’ve no doubt noticed that the remarkable Myretta Robens is posting here on Saturdays when I do not. Myretta knows far more about titles, Jane Austen, and ignoring cats to write than I do, so please bug her for advice (as I do).


My romantic women’s fiction title Vanity Fare came out this week, and it was cool to see it in Target stores, as well as track it online (“only 16 copies left!”). The response has been mostly positive, and even the negative critiques have been helpful.

I currently working on a very light historical, and been reading some light historicals to motivate my brain; unlike most writers, I love reading in the same genre in which I’m writing. So to ask you:

What’s your favorite light historical book or author? Julia Quinn is the Queen, of course, but which of hers are particular favorites? Or anybody else?

And hope everyone had, and is having, a lovely holiday season.

Congrats on the release and the good sales, Megan!

I think Loretta Chase does a great job with humor in her historicals, though there’s often a vein of dark underlying it, which is cool too.

It has been snowing a lot since we got home from visiting family which is just fine. We have nowhere pressing to be so I’m catching up on stuff (including sleep), cooking and baking, watching movies, actually taking time to read for pleasure. It’s nice.

I agree with Elena. No one does light historicals better than Loretta Chase (but, of course, I generally think Loretta can do no wrong). I like Julia Quinn, I like Connie Brockway’s light historicals (although she does dark and in between pretty well, too). Amanda Quick (surprised?) if fun if formulaic. And I adored Jill Barnett’s light historicals before she abaondoned the genre.

Marion Devon wrote some lovely regencies that were very amusing, as did Barbara Metzger….

There are many out there, but Julie Garwood was the first romance author I read, and her historicals hold a special place in my heart. Who could resist all those wonderful Highlanders?
