What are you thankful for? I’m thankful that I finally finished A Duke for Diana! Toward the end, I had stuff piled up all over the house, and stuff in my office waiting for me to organize. I actually wrote practically every waking moment just to get it done when I did. It comes out May 31, 2022.
We’ll just hope that none of the things that have been happening to me and my family reoccur next year while I’m trying to write An Earl for Eliza! Among other things while writing Diana’s book, I threw my back out, which I have never done in my life. I had to return to wearing the back brace I bought when I started having trouble with sciatica. Suddenly, the brace I hadn’t used in a few years became essential again. Ah, the joys of writing for long hours. But I will say that the end was very emotional for me, and I’m very proud of this book. Even if it nearly killed me toward the end!
Anyway, I do hope all of you have a safe and enjoyable holiday season, whichever holidays you observe. Now I’m off to get my Moderna booster shot!

Did you know how fashion dolls began? They go back to the 14th century, but were mainly popular in the 18th and early 19th centuries as a way for dressmakers and tailors to demonstrate their fashions to their customers. Dolls could be used to demonstrate a new fashion in various fabrics or to show how variations on a particular fashion could work. They could also show what the latest fashions were in France . . . at least until Napoleon banned them during the Napoleonic Wars. He was afraid they’d be used to send secret messages to his enemies in England! They were still used a while longer in England, but eventually fell out of favor when fashion magazines became popular. But if you want to see an antique one, just check out this doll with a whole trousseau from 1810.
One lucky winner will be the talk of the ton when they receive this very merry Regency prize package featuring a Buckingham Palace teacup and teapot ornament set.
