Our history stems from the writing program of California State University Fullerton. In late 2001, this program instilled a technique for critiquing works in progress. It evolved off campus to a writers group that has met once a month since, nearly 100 meetings at the time our company was formed. The experience of critiquing let one of the members to develop a very distinctive hand at editing.
While the writing group honed their skills from editing to preparing works for publication, the traditional author-writing-publication road changed over the course of this period. Consolidation of the major houses, the convergence of the Internet and e-reading, all have played a part in the formation of Regency Assembly Press.
Why Regency? Had there been any better representation on the screen of the iconic performance of Lord Olivier as Fitzwilliam Darcy, or Greer Garson as Elizabeth Bennet? (Of course in recent years new great performances of the Austen classic have emerged.) Realizing that such images had played a part in our founder’s life, as well as the Horatio Hornblower Saga of C.S. Forester, the enjoyment and teaching of Regency Dancing when partaking of a dance such as Mr. Beveridge’s Maggot, the wit of Georgette Heyer in her many pieces on the period, it thus seemed easy to select an identity for our enterprise.
Our desire is to bring more books that instill a fond reflection of the period of the Ton, and on-dits. Of Wellington and Napoleon, Nelson and Cochrane. Dancing, Beethoven and frivolity, great estates and great changes.
