Teaser Tuesday: Aw the Cute

Since A Bridge to War is currently sitting about waiting for me to poke it with a (historical) stick (with the help of lovely betas, the ever awesome Jaece having been added to that fantastic group!) and since A Tangled Web is currently on temporary hiatus - at least until a) I figure out what I need to do to the dialogue in order to fix it and/or b) my characters attack me and force me to write it whether I like it or not - I suspect most of my teasers in the coming weeks will be from Letters to Oliver, because that WiP is shiny and new and hasn't got any problems yet. :)

So, without further ado, I give you Emily!

  3. I love your Victorian-style prose. It comes off very authentic and flows really well. I'm intrigued by this WIP, because I love all things alternate history. Can't wait to read more :)

  4. I love hystorical novels, they're always more romantic for some reason. :D

    Great snip

  5. I have to agree, I think you totally nailed the voice and style for the novel. Historical novels are hard... haha but you make it look son easy.

    Loved the teaser!

  6. I just love the way you write. It's so Austen-esque! And, I like the way you put this letter form, as if we (the readers) have happened upon some old letters and are now leafing through them). Great snip!

  7. This is so cool! I've never tried historical for fear of messing up, but you totally pulled it off. Great voice and writing!

  8. I remember seeing a bit of this on FNW! *loveslovesloves the voice* It gets stuck in my head, if that makes any sense. :)

  12. Thanks so much, guys!

    Dys: Alternate history, ftw! :)

    Amna: Haha, thanks. It's 'cause I'm incapable of anything else, really.

    Becca: I know exactly what you mean! British accents get stuck in my head really easily... especially after watching Doctor Who or Pride & Prejudice.

    Choco: Didn't I tell you? I'm actually a Victorian. I time-traveled here, and got a bit stuck. ;)
