A Slapdash Post

makingvictorianDo you love the word “slapdash”? I do. It’s been another busy week so here are just a few highlights.

I’ve started research for a new series about the grown-up children from Lady Dearing’s Masquerade.  Amanda recommended this wonderful book, The Making of Victorian Values by Ben Wilson. It’s been a huge help in thinking about the transition from Regency to early Victorian times. Thanks, Amanda!

I’m also working with my fellow Regency Masquerades contributors (Brenda Hiatt, Lynn Kerstan, Allison Lane, Gail Eastwood and Alicia Rasley) to launch this boxed set. This set releases on October 13–look forward to a week-long Regency Masquerades Ball, with fun and giveaways.  You can also preorder now for 99 cents! (Kindle Nook Apple Kobo)


I also took a little time to enjoy the fall foliage and pick apples and late-season raspberries.


How’ve you been spending your time?


About Elena Greene

Elena Greene grew up reading anything she could lay her hands on, including her mother's Georgette Heyer novels. She also enjoyed writing but decided to pursue a more practical career in software engineering. Fate intervened when she was sent on a three year international assignment to England, where she was inspired to start writing romances set in the Regency. Her books have won the National Readers' Choice Award, the Desert Rose Golden Quill and the Colorado Romance Writers' Award of Excellence. Her Super Regency, LADY DEARING'S MASQUERADE, won RT Book Club's award for Best Regency Romance of 2005 and made the Kindle Top 100 list in 2011. When not writing, Elena enjoys swimming, cooking, meditation, playing the piano, volunteer work and craft projects. She lives in upstate New York with her two daughters and more yarn, wire and beads than she would like to admit.
