This is the first official post to Lady Scribes, and I’m thrilled and honored to be the first poster of what we hope will be a fun spot for writers of all stages in their careers. As the information on the sidebar explains, we are a group of historical romance writers that came together as an online critique group. Two of us were looking for better feedback and we were quickly joined by others. Some were already published authors and others, just finishing the first draft of a novel. Together we have learned and grown as writers and critiquers. We’ve studied the craft, attended conferences, entered and judged contests. We each have our own strengths and weaknesses, and as a whole we are a pretty knowledgeable group of ladies, or at least I believe so.
You may be wondering about the titles. We choose our titles to match our writing personalities and strength. Mine is Duchess of Decency. In addition to writing Georgian and Regency romances, my novels are either Christian Inspirational or Sweet. However, you will find the temperature levels in this group run from sweet to hot. Another title that could be assigned to me was Countess of Content because as a critique partner, my strength is assessing the content of a story. I will rarely note a grammatical error, or notice if a title is incorrect, but if a story doesn’t flow or make sense, I will be the one asking questions.
One strength we all have is a focus on historical romance. So, if there is a topic you would like us to address, please post it in the comment section below. We are a new blog and will always be open to ideas.
Thanks again for joining us.
