Historical Romance Writers Dishing the Dirt on Research

Contest for LORD SIN!

To celebrate the publication of my first book, I’m giving away a period piece of jewelry! It’s a paste lace pin, c. 1800, such as might have been worn by the heroine of Lord Sin to hold her fichu in place.

This tiny pin is made up of clear pastes surrounding a larger teal paste (paste was a very popular “stone” for Georgian jewelry, and was not meant to fool people into thinking it was a precious or semiprecious stone the way a modern cubic zirconia is). The clasp works, and it’s very wearable.

All you have to do to be eligible for the drawing is join my quarterly mailing list before Lord Sin hits the shelves (1 May 2007).

Wow, I love the brooch; it so reminds me of my Mom and Grandma who has both passed away. They would have been 'into' this kind of jewellery-they were elegant ladies.

I'm really lucky in that Candice Hern happens to be a member of my local chapter. She even brought her Georgian jewelry to a meeting once so I could see it in person.
