Why should I preorder? - January 28, 2020

A fellow author posted this excellent thread over on Twitter about the importance of book preorders to authors, and it reminded me that not everyone may understand why this is. Many authors, including myself, hesitate to sound too demanding or desperate, but there is a distinct difference between plugging and simply educating. Essentially, preorders demonstrate to publishers, as well as booksellers and online retailers that there is interest and demand for the book. This can lead to a number of...

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - Night-Clubs - October 31, 2019

London was abuzz with night-clubs in the late teens and twenties. Some of these catered only to the wealthy and elite, like the glamorous Embassy Club—with its violet and jade-green décor, walls ranged with looking glasses, and high-subscription fees. While others flouted the strict liquor licensing laws, serving libations late into the night to the music of its American jazz bands. These clubs also often featured exhibitions of ballroom and new novelty dances, some performed by duo... Click Here To Read More >>



Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - London - October 24, 2019

Behind the Scenes of PENNY FOR YOUR SECRETS: Much of Verity’s third adventure is set in the hustle and bustle of 1919 London, from the graceful squares of Mayfair to the clamor of the Oxford Circus.                                                       ... Click Here To Read More >>



Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - Drugs and Legislation - October 17, 2019

In 1919, London had an opium and cocaine problem, even among the elite. Though cocaine fell out of favor, thanks to the infamous death of Billie Carleton, a rising star in theater, it was still attainable, and opium in all its various forms was still widely regarded as restorative. Members of society sometimes hosted opium parties where everyone would change into their pajamas and lie around on pillows while a member of the party, or even more fashionable—a Chinese herbalist—administ...

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - The Duchess of Marlborough - October 10, 2019

One of the major inciting incidents of the story and several of the characters involved were inspired by an anecdote about the 9th Duke of Marlborough and his second wife, Gladys Deacon. Marlborough had first been wed to the American heiress, Consuelo Vanderbilt. The marriage was notoriously unhappy, and after they divorced, Marlborough wed his mistress, Gladys Deacon. Unfortunately, their wedded bliss also soured, though Marlborough’s subsequent conversion to Roman Catholicism made divorc... Click Here To Read More >>

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - Fashion - October 3, 2019

1919 was very much a transition year in fashion, away from the stark garments of the war years and into the bobbed hair and familiar straight silhouettes of the 1920s. September 1919 was also quite warm in southern England. At least until the sudden cold snap which occurred later in the month.     ... Click Here To Read More >>
