October 2018


Celebrated for her complex characters, realistic conflicts, and sensual love scenes, Paullett Golden puts a spin on historical romance. Her novels, set primarily in Georgian and Regency England with some dabbling in Ireland, Scotland, and France, challenge the norm by involving characters who are loved for their flaws, imperfections, and idiosyncrasies. Her stories show love overcoming adversity. Whatever our self-doubts, love will out.

I'll mull over a scene for days, jotting down bits of dialogue or character blocking or description as ideas come. By the time I sit down to write the scene, I've already sketched out most of the important bits. From there, I let the characters guide me as to which scene they want to tackle next, and then begins the mulling period all over again. Since I never write from start to finish, I don't become blocked. If nothing is coming to me when I'm planning a scene, then I think about a different scene. The characters 100% guide me. By this I mean that if I've tried to think on a scene a few times and nothing comes, I'll find out a few days later that one of the scenes that DID come easily to me changed the whole direction of the story, thus omitting the trouble scene. Those are the "ah ha" moments because I realize the characters never wanted to be in that scene, thus keeping me from gathering ideas for it. Funny how that works!(less)

Lady Mary's story will release Feb. 14, 2020, so in just a little over one month! It's already available for pre-order. You can find her story in The Colonel and The Enchantress. I hope you'll love it as much as the first three! The final two books in this series will be Hazel's story and then Cuthbert's story, and I plan on publishing them later in 2020, perhaps autumn and winter, depending on how the timing goes. We will see a few cameos of the characters in this series in the next series The Sirens (coming 2021). (less)

Oscar Wilde
“Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Barbara W. Tuchman
“Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Without books, the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are engines of change (as the poet said), windows on the world and lighthouses erected in the sea of time. They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.

[Bulletin of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Vol. 34, No. 2 (Nov. 1980), pp. 16-32]”
Barbara Tuchman

Chris Abani
“What I've come to learn is that the world is never saved in grand messianic gestures, but in the simple accumulation of gentle, soft, almost invisible acts of compassion.”
Chris Abani

George Bernard Shaw
“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw

Marcel Proust
“I think that life would suddenly seem wonderful to us if we were threatened to die as you say. Just think of how many projects, travels, love affairs, studies, it–our life–hides from us, made invisible by our laziness which, certain of a future, delays them incessantly.

‘But let all this threaten to become impossible for ever, how beautiful it would become again! Ah! If only the cataclysm doesn’t happen this time, we won’t miss visiting the new galleries of the Louvre, throwing ourselves at the feet of Miss X, making a trip to India.

‘The cataclysm doesn’t happen, we don’t do any of it, because we find ourselves back in the heart of normal life, where negligence deadens desire. And yet we shouldn’t have needed the cataclysm to love life today. It would have been enough to think that we are humans, and that death may come this evening.”
Marcel Proust
