As a writer it’s quite challenging to try and be different. Years ago I was in sales and marketing for a few years and learnt about identifying USPs. I quite liked what my HNS reviewer said: “The element that sets Ms Fisher’s work apart from other romantic historical fiction is her concern with the social issues of the period…period romance with a bit of substance, but never heavy and boring.” (review of Rose Glace).
In my Regency Master Series, you therefore won’t be surprised to find political themes woven around the central romance. A MASTER OF SPECULATION has a radical former naval captain taking action to prevent the execution of one of Napoleon’s former marshals, A MASTER OF INDUSTRY has a wealthy earl developing a conscience about employment of children in mills. Watch out for A MASTER OF LITIGATION, due out in May, which has a conventional barrister using his role in court to question the government’s repression of the people.
