Hairbrushes in the Regency

Hairbrushes in the Regency

I’ve mentioned this date before in my December posts, but for those who don’t remember or who are new to Austen Authors, twelve years ago today, on December 7, 2008, I lost my mom. While it still saddens me, I’m not as overwhelmingly so as I was a couple years ago. As always, time heals… Read the full blog post …

Thankfulness

Thankfulness

As I’m sure everyone knows, November in the USA means Thanksgiving. The holiday is only one day, and it’s nearer to the end of the month, but some of us, myself included, like to spend the entire month reflecting on what we are thankful for. Jane Austen, in Pride and Prejudice, used the word “thank,”… Read the full blog post …

1811 Fashions

1811 Fashions

If you know me at all, you know I am one of the least fashionable women in existence. My favorite apparel when I’m not one hundred pounds overweight is jeans and a t-shirt. (My favorite fat clothes are leggings and t-shirts, so …) Totally not what’s in or has been in style for the last,… Read the full blog post …

Perfume in the Regency

Perfume in the Regency

I was writing something the other day (I can’t remember what now … I recently dropped two projects that were going nowhere and began a Christmas story) and the topic of perfume came up. Caroline needed a personal perfume, a scent that was hers alone so Darcy could tell just with a sniff and no… Read the full blog post …

A Very Different New Book

A Very Different New Book

I finally have another release! With the advent of COVID and the stay at home orders, I had begun three stories and then got to the point that I was unable to write at all. The lady who runs the bakery found this out and told me to come back (though I can’t eat inside).… Read the full blog post …

Quilts in Jane Austen’s Time

Quilts in Jane Austen’s Time

Last month, my post here at Austen Authors contained an excerpt from my newest release, Darcy’s Uneasy Betrothal, and an example of what a “purple post” is like on my personal blog. In that example, I looked at purple quilts. One of the comments on that post got me thinking about quilts in the Regency… Read the full blog post …

A New Book from Zoe Burton!

A New Book from Zoe Burton!

I’m sure most of you know already that Darcy’s Uneasy Betrothal went live last Monday. It was a fun one to write, this book, though I had to consciously turn off the voices in my head that wanted me to rush to finish it. 😀 I shared an excerpt last month, and the month before… Read the full blog post …

A new book is on the way!

A new book is on the way!

I was happy to realize this past weekend that I am three or four writing days away from finishing another book. I think I’ll have a party when this one is complete (though it will be an admittedly small party, just me and my dog, given This Current Crisis). <3 The reason I’m so happy… Read the full blog post …
