Quote of the Day

“History isn’t dead. New facts are constantly being uncovered and published.”

From the fascinating comments thread for this post [Warning! NSFW!] over on Trashy Books, Smart Bitches.  The discussion contains some, um, rather frank discussion of period terms for lady bits and manly bits.  But also some fascinating insights into how authors research and write historical romances, and what readers look for in their historicals.

Oh, and did you know that there is a Historical Novel Society?
