Romance in a different time and place (#MFRWAuthor)

Published April 27, 2018 by francesothomas



This week’s topic on the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop is my favorite romance genre to read or write. While I really love to read regency romances, I have never attempted to write one. I have to ask myself why that is.

Am I just too lazy to do the research? No, that can’t be it. I enjoy looking things up. Of course, the very real possibility exists that I’d be so caught up in researching that I’d never get anything written.

Maybe I should accept the challenge. I write romances to give readers the chance to escape from everyday life. Reading about a totally different era is even more of an escape, right?

Should I try it?

  • I’ve toyed with the idea of writing a Regency romance. I really enjoy reading them. Then, I know I’d get the whole aristocratic hierarchy wrong and goof the titles, even if the historical details were correct. Actually, I think it would be fascinating to read a historical romance of that general time frame which takes place in, say, Greece, Prussia, or Croatia.
