We are only a week away from the release of Because the Earl Loved Me! Thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered, and to my ARC team who is busy reading and reviewing. You are all wonderful and I appreciate you so much!

We have so much happening in the next few weeks!  If you haven't yet read the Happily Ever After series, now is the time. Here is a bit of what is to come:

Sept 25th -- The release of Because the Earl Loved Me! It will be 99 cents for the first two weeks

Sept 25th - 27th -- Loved by the Viscount will be reduced to 99 cents for a very limited time during this flash sale! I am participating with a few other lovely authors, and will share more next week.

Oct 3rd - 7th - The Duke She Wished For will be free!! I will send you all the info that week.

As always, while writing I saved my inspirations for the story on pinterest. Be sure to check it out here for a sneak peak! 

I love to find figures who best represent to me our hero and heroine’s physical description, and also to find true houses or estates that I can model the setting after.

In each board there is also a segment for “themes” that includes some of my research. Which is where today’s historical fun fact comes from… If you are an avid regency reader, I'm sure you have heard of Covent Garden, but what about theatre outside of London? Theatres were built throughout England, where entertainment of various sorts was held. Rich and poor alike attended, with the rich in boxes beside the stage, to the poor in galleries. Theatre audiences could be rather rude, typically talking through the performances, often arriving late, and sometimes were even downright dangerous. Actors were often equated to the same status as servants, while actresses were often looked upon as prostitutes -- and many often were mistresses of the nobility.

With love,

Ellie
