I read historical romances, but I don’t write them and I admire anyone who CAN write them and can place me in a different time period as well as a different setting. Spanking works particularly well in the historical genre because the author doesn’t have to overcome reader judgments about equality between the sexes. It was different then. Readers accept that.
This week, I have the pleasure of interviewing four historical romance authors. Two write spanking fiction, two write nonspanking fiction. One is personal friend who I met right out of college when we worked at a newspaper together. Two of them have written medieval romances; two have written Regency romances.
I hope you’ll stop by each day to learn more about the authors and their novels.
Tuesday, August 20 – Celeste Jones, The Comeuppance of Lady Katherine – Celeste normally writes contemporary fiction, but she is branching out with her first Regency spanking novel
Wednesday, August 21 – Barbara Bettis, Silverhawk. I know Barbara through the Ozark Romance Authors and got to know her better at RT 2013. Sivlerhawk is her debut Medieval romance.
Thursday, August 22 – Karla Tipton, Rings of Passage. I first read Karla’s debut romance novel about King Richard III waaaay back in our critique group years ago. She’s a fabulous writer and a personal friend. August 22 is the release day of Rings.
Friday August, 23 – Renee Rose, The Westerfield Affair– Renee writes spanking fiction in a variety of subgenres including contemporary, paranormal, and historical, the latter including Regency, Medieval and Old West. The Westerfield Affair is Regency.
