June 20th update for The Regency Lover's Cafe - Favorite Authors Newsletter updated with news and coverart. Rocky Blair won Andrea Picken's "Second Chances". We are back to oldie, but goldies with Rebecca Ashley's "An Intriguing Innocent". So try your luck and enter! Have added more author websites and items to the Online Services page. Take care, and happy reading! Marilyn
May - I created a site for Regency author Mary Chase Comstock. She helped me greatly with information and comments. You will find her on The Regency Authors Page. Evelyn Olivieri has a wonderful site of information on so many things Regency and related items. You will want to take a tour! Her website is called The Historical Romance Reader.
March - I found a neat site for regency book lovers - Regencies.com is solely regency based books. A used book online store that deals only in regency stories. The link is on the Online Services page.
February - Hi, glad you could come back to visit. Paula Creed won the last book drawing. Andrea Picken's new book "Second Chances" is the current drawing prize. Favorite Authors page is updated, there are some nice covers shown and news on authors I like to read. I have added more Regency authors to the regency author links list. Finished the list of current and upcoming releases for my favorite authors. These are almost all regency books with a few of my other favorite authors included; for I use this list as a wish list (grin). Another neat site, Regency Series Guide lets you check your book to see if they are part of a sequel or series storyline; was added to the frontpage and to the Online Services for Romance Readers. Romance Writers of America has a searchable database of romance novels where you can search by character name, plot, location, etc. Really neat! This is located on the Online Services page.
January - Hello, I can't believe that I have been doing this page for a year this month. I have learned some very different skills (still learning :) and met some very nice people through the internet. I thought this page could keep you up with what is new to this site.
January sees the addition of some new authors I have read and enjoyed. And these include authors other than regencies, though they remain my most favorite to read (grin). Leigh Greenwood's "Seven Brides" series was particularly good and engrossing. I have Connie Brockway's first of the McClairen's Isle trilogy "The Passionate One" and am looking forward to "The Reckless One" and "The Ravishing One". Rita Boucher's book "The Poet and The Paragon" I thoroughly enjoyed for all the complex feelings of the characters. I am trying to find a website for her to add to my regency authors page.
A neat site to look at for the flavor of life during regency times is Castles, Palaces and Stately Homes of Britain. The designer of this site also has Lousia's Magical Romance Reading Website (paranormal romance) which has an abundance of information. This and The Elusive Title are at the online services site. The Elusive Title, helps you solve the question of "what book was that?" If you can remember part of the story, but not the title, she has a form you can fill out and she will try to solve it for you!
The double winners of the Christmas drawing are listed on the Book Drawing site along with the Barbara Hazard and Shelia Walsh books for next drawing.
Several additions to Online Services for the Romance Reader; one Darlene's Paperback Exchange is a local used book store where she will hunt for old ones you may need. Belles and Beaux of Romance is a nice mix of author interviews, book reviews and news. Cyn's Trading Post, Subversion, and FictionDB.com are interesting sites to visit in quest of backlists or new additions.
