Posts Tagged ‘Regency Money’


Since joining the English Historical Fiction Authors, many who follow my blog will have noted that I stepped up my game with it. A lot more history has been presented here, including such articles on Regency Money, The Prime Ministers of the Regency, The Regency Timeline and the Regency Lexicon. All these pages have detailed followups at various parts of the Regency Assembly Press website.

Recently I have started biographies or the Regency Personalties Series, having done so far

If you take a look at the sidebar on the right (and even click on the links to the books and buy a few) you will notice that there are now some hyperlink widgets to previous posts, so they will be easy to find. There are even a double list for some where the website has more detail then the old blog posts that are here.

The plan will be to have much of the references of the history from the blog displayed on the right sidebar (also giving you a chance to buy some of my works, the only way I can afford to go to the supermarket to get food) including a list linking you to the Prime Ministers, the Lexicon, and other research that has been posted here.


For those who have been following the Sunday Posts, they know that this is the day we release another chapter in the Duology, Steam and Thunder. So far we have released 8 chapters and that is over half of the first book. This is a call for artists who would like to be paid, should the book go to print, and copyeditors. The plan is to make this a well done KickStarter project. With interior illustrations. We need quotes though so we can price out the project. Please get in touch with us.

NaNo Novel

It is that time of year again, and next week we begin the first draft of Food and Art. A contemporary romance. During NaNoWriMo I shall be hard at work to do a post of the Regency Personalities, write 20 pages a day, look for work, and edit more of The Prize is Not As Great As You Think, our Ruritania Romance that goes up on Wednesdays.

My Blog might actually be reaching the next level. People are now following this blog and perhaps it is the research on the Regency Era that I have been doing. (There is a GIVEAWAY, read and see below)

Of course I write on more than just the Regency Era. I have shown excerpts of all my styles of writing. Currently I have started the third book in my first Fantasy Trilogy that I ever wrote. I call the series Born to Grace and the third book is tentatively titled Crown in Jeopardy. It will end the story of our hero, Caradoc MacLaughlin. We see him rise from squire to Duke, the most powerful man in the realm behind his best friend who becomes king.

Caradoc though a hero, did start with a silver spoon. He is the third son of a Duke, and was squire to his friend’s father, the former king. He spent a lot of hours on the training field to become a competent warrior. His skills are that he is a good leader as well. And this emerges during a very troubled time in the history of the land he lives in. There is a coup, that is funded by the priests of the evil god (or what the Father God, Good God, thinks of the ‘Me’ god, the opposite of altruism.)

That is just an illustration that I do write other works. And that this Blog will talk of them. That it will post excerpts as well.

Right now, I am looking for help on our mainstay, the Regency Era.

(I always need readers of my first draft material so if you would like to help there, that is always needed)

But I need some feedback.

Those who are following The Things That Catch My Eye blog know we have been doing a lot of Regency Era Research


The research is presented at this blog, and hosted permanently at the Regency Assembly Press Site. (Are you a RAPper, or a RAPScallion?)

For the last few days I have been back doing research for my regency stories. Research I find I do over and over, so I started a few posts about them, such as the Regency Prime Ministers, and Regency Money.

Those who have been following also know about the Regency Lexicon and the Regency Timeline, hard at work popping in graphics for 1793. That should be revised in a few days or so. Now I thought to bring all this together at the Regency Assembly Press webpages with a new starting page for the research.

Here are links to all of them.






Another section I will add soon will be the dates that Parliament met in session. I just found a new source for that part of my research.
