I'm not sure if this guy's writing is terrible or brilliant.
Yes. The answer is yes.
He's a legend
Am currently worldbuilding that stupid response to hetero-a/b/o i brought up days ago.
I have questions about how the economics work and why the hell none of the mains use birth control, though I'll chalk both of those up to wish fulfilment. Its fun to have a Christian Gray rich alpha boyfriend i guess
(Is it grey i feel like its grey)
Anyway my werewolves are based more on ....actual wolves. With family groups and no main Alpha/Luna. Its more of a committee type thing, as the pack is still small enough that that kind of government doesn't get too messy.
I would put this in my scribble thread but I dont know if Chel follows that one XD I'll put the other notes over there so i dont clog this one
I will start following it! Where is it?
The first page has a few WIPs that i didnt finish under spoilers, if you want an idea of what my style used to be. I was a lot better at writing when i did those, im trying to work my way back up. Very out of practice.
Author of this book isn't aware that you can't rely on distance for preventing prisoners escaping in England. The evil kidnapping noble scion goes on about how it would take well over three days of running to reach the boundary of his house's land. The largest surrounding land around an English stately home I've been able to find hard numbers for is eight thousand acres, which if we're assuming a roughly circular area is only about four miles across, and the house they started from is in the middle.
This is, of course, assuming that the prisoners are not all actually Jesus and cannot walk on water...
Heh, there weren't any water obstacles mentioned, though running for three days in England would probably take you to the ocean. I'm just assuming these characters are too daft to walk in a straight line, as other evidence backs me up.
Our hero goes on about how his father taught him and his brothers to master their emotions and "rein in the uncouth part of ourselves". By the point in the book at which he says this, he has casually dropped F-bombs no fewer than seventy-two times, and it's not a long book. Yyyyyeaaahhhh.
They sound like a buncha cunts who need to watch their fucking language, goddammit.
Maybe if he was Glaswegian I'd buy it!
I'm one and a half books into this series where one of the two point of view characters is supposed to be a nobleman, and it's just hit me that the writer hasn't told us what his actual title or rank is.
Makes it sound like he's embarrassed of his rank, like every time you ask he either changes the subject or distracts you XD
There are...so many Dukes in romance novels. im not sure why. maybe its a subgenre in itself that i keep running into.
also i hate it when it says regency romance but the cover has a lady in a robe a la francias or something (that style of dress you think of when you think Marie Antionette)
I'm not even sure I know what "regency" refers to exactly, and I'm a nerd. (There was a regency in England during the Napoleonic wars, when George the... Third I think, had dementia. Is it that one?) A lot of people probably just vaguely think of "regency" as meaning "historical and fancy".
I have a vague memory of seeing Unpretty on Tumblr mention that there is indeed such a subgenre once.
Yep, that's the one. Jane Austen was publishing during that period (the 1810s) and she's often considered the grandmother of the modern romance novel, so there's a very well-established subgenre calling back to the aesthetics of her and her contemporaries.
High waistlines! The skirts were not so exaggerated! Regency Means something darn it! just call it a historical romance if that's what it is!
So... that'd be approximately the Napoleonic period. Does that make the Aubrey and Maturin books Regency romances? :P
(Also, that's when a lot of Georgette Heyer's books are set, right?)
Wikipedia says she sort of founded (the modern version of) the subgenre, yeah.
