Thank you, Regency ladies

Cover_FibsInTheFamilyMy Regency romance novella on Wattpad, Fibs in the Family, is slowly gaining readers and Likes. On this day, Oct 12, 2015, when Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving, I want to thank those who helped me write the story.

Fibs in the Family is my first historical romance, and it took some research. Most of my research was done through the internet, where I found several fascinating website and a number of very knowledgeable writers. They were very generous with their time answering my questions.

Vic Sanborn and her Jane Austen’s World blog  is a treasure trove of information about every aspect of life in Regency England, from fashion to transportation. I was most interested in family finances, and of course, she has a post for that. It helped tremendously. Thank you, Vic.

My story includes paintings by an imaginary artist. I was trying to find out what were the prices of paintings in Regency England. Kathryn Kane of the website The Regency Redingote replied to my questions with a detailed email. Her knowledge on the subject seemed bottomless, and she shared it without reservation. Thank you, Kathryn.

Regina Jeffers of the eponymous blog helped me find what I needed to know on several subjects. She also directed me to other websites, where I could find additional info. Thank you, Regina.

Nancy Mayer, Regency Researcher answered my questions about death and mourning, specifically mourning for a traitor. My story might’ve been very wrong without her input. Thank you, Nancy.

There are other websites I read or scanned through while seeking specific or obscure details about Regency England: food and Christmas, politics and medicine. I can’t list them all, I don’t even remember them all, but I want to express my gratitude to all of them. Thank you.
