Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She is now the author of more than 50 works of warm, witty historical romance.

She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.

And if it's rejected once or twice or eighteen times, the next time might be the charm. You also don't have to go to a traditional big publisher anymore. There are smaller presses hungry for authors, and there is self-publishing. I know how easy it is to get depressed. I might have dozens of good reviews, and then I see one poor one and feel bad for days. (One of the reasons I sometimes avoid Goodreads ;-)). If industry news stops you from writing, stop reading industry news until the book's done. You can always catch up later (and you'll have missed some of the drama). Our writing muses can be shy, easily frightened things. Focus on feeding them (writing, doing things that encourage your creativity and positivity). Hope this helps! (less)

A Bittersweet Conference

  This past weekend Regina and I were both happy and sad to attend Regency Fiction Writers’ 2021 Virtual Conference. We’re sad because it has now been two very long years since we were able to have our annual “girls’ week” together at a conference, the one time in the year where we get to see each other in person. But happy because it was an amazing learning experience!
