Welcome to Friday 13th on Title Magic. Superstitious? Us?
No guest today, after Terry did such a great job blogging with us yesterday about handling the back-story, but a chance to catch up on previous guests and look forward to the future.
Amanda Grange gave us a fascinating glimpse of how she re-imagines Jane Austen's stories from the point of view of the hero when she guested with us in March. She’s currently revealing more about how she goes about her much applauded diaries, with a series of blogs on the UK historical romance site http://www.historicalromanceuk.blogspot.com She’ll be blogging on the 6th and 21st of each month and says that the blogs might interest new writers, even if they're not writing historical romance.
Sarah Mallory, our guest in May, will be one of the speakers at a Regency Romance Day (Tomorrow, 14th June) at Manchester Library, which is currently hosting an exhibition 'And then he kissed her …' celebrating 100 years of publication of Mills and Boon in the UK. Early visitors report that it is not only a centenary event but a fascinating social history, in a beautiful building that is well worth a look in its own right.
And to come on Title Magic?
Next month Louise Allen will be with us, talking about her linked series for Harlequin/Mills and Boon -- 6 books, following the lives and loves of Those Scandalous Ravenhursts. Seven cousins – the grandchildren of the Duke of Allington – are at the heart of six stories charting their sometimes rocky, and always scandalous, paths to true love. Dangerous Jack, Outrageous Bel, Shocking Gareth, Disgraceful Theo, Bluestocking Elinor, Notorious Eden and Piratical Clemence.
The first book in the series, The Dangerous Mr Ryder is out now, to be followed soon by The Outrageous Lady Felsham.
Something to look forward to next month on Title Magic.
And after that? Well, now --which month of the year is the spookiest? Title Magic has a theory. Stay with us and find out more.
