Everybody loves historical romance. It is the tug of the old world that makes romance so exciting. The history is full of romantic escapades of famous historical figures such as Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, The Boleyn Women, etc. Their romance is the stuff of legends.

Here we list out the top 5 historical romance authors of all times. Their novels are dubbed as the best romantic books to read. They are the authors who have blended romance and history to create a genre of good romance books to read called “Regency Romance’.

Let’s start.
Stephanie Laurens

The first author on our list is Stephanie Laurens who quit her job of writing facts to a full time career of writing fiction after her first book got published.

Stephanie writes romance set in the British Regency period and the settings in her novels stretch from the highlands of Scotland to the plains and valleys and mountains of India.

Over 50 books in publication out of which 29 are New York Times bestsellers, Stephanie has won the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award for best romance novella in 2008 for her book – The Fall Of Roger Gerrard.

Her novels consistently feature the Cynster Family. Her other series include the Bastion Club Novels and the Black Cobra Quartet.

Stephanie Laurens was born in Sri Lanka; then known as Ceylon. She has traveled extensively across India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Iran, Australia, England, France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

Her initiation in romance novels came with Georgette Heyer books.

Eloisa James

Being married to an Italian is reason enough to understand Eloisa James writing historical romance or regency romance. Eloisa James is the pen name of Mary Bly and is the daughter of poet Robert Bly and short story author Carol Bly.

Eloisa is a writer of Regency and Georgian romance novels and a professor who teaches Shakespeare and English Literature at Fordham University. Her romance novels can be clubbed as series of topics or characters based.

Eloisa James has won the RITA Award for the Best Novella for Seduced By A Pirate in July 2013.

Eloisa James credits her poet father Robert Bly for her inspirations to write romance.

Georgette Heyer

The mother of Historical Romance and Regency Romance, Georgette Heyer is the ultimate inspiration for all romance authors.

Georgette Heyer was born on 16 August 1902 and died on 4 July 1974. She wrote romance and detective fiction; but her romance novels are more popular.

The peculiar feature of Heyer’s writing is the accuracy of historical facts and close resemblance to real life aristocrats.

Tessa Dare

Tessa is New York Times and USA Today best selling Regency Romance author. She has been awarded the RITA Award twice with RT Book Reviews Seal of Excellence. Her books are translated in a dozen languages.

Spindles Cove and Castles Ever After are her best selling series which have female heroines pursuing un-lady like pursuits like paleontology and beer making.

She is a librarian by training and an avid book lover.

Rosemary Rogers

Rosemary Rogers was born in aristocratic household and started writing at a tender age of eight.

After 3 marriages, her daughter found the manuscript of her first novel, which the publishing house Avon readily bought which made her famous.

Rosemary Rogers’s romance fiction follows riches to rags storyline. Her novels also feature a lot of sensual imagery coupled with violence and abuse of the heroines.

Her stories are a regular of Mills and Boons. Her novel, Love Play, published in 1981 features in Bollywood super star Akshay Kumar’s first super hit film “Khiladi” released in 1992.

Considering Poetry As A Career!

Whether to have poetry as a career is a very contentious topic.  For many, calling poem writing a career may not seem correct as they feel there is less opportunities for advancement.  

Becoming a poet is perhaps one of those career choices where you are not required to have any form of formal education.

Apart from excellent flair for the language you want to write in, what you need is a very strong imagination. 

 Poets are able to think fast and in a way where we commoners are not able to view. Learn how to improve your creative skills

Note: To the poet there is no good poem or a bad poem.  He expresses what he imagines through a lovely weave of words.  

Poems can be inspirational or contemporary poems. It can express the feelings of a lovelorn heart or can stir a burning social issue.

Developing Skills & Literature!

To develop your skills in the language, you can actually take up a course in the literature and get some ideas on writing skills. 

So while you do poetry you can also become a resident writer in a university and forget worrying about food and shelter.

While you decide to be a poet, you should also decide what exactly you want to write about.  

What is that thing that captives your imagination. What is that one burning subject that keeps you up in the middle of the night? 

 What is it that brings joy in your heart and tears in your eyes?

Note: How a poem will start and will end may vary.  Instead of worrying about the frame, first write what will come very naturally to you. 

 Like an abstract art painter, throw in your colors on the canvas and see what is transpiring. 

 You can refer to poetry books to get some inspiration.  Set some daily hours and goals for practice.

For kids who are eager to enter into the world of poetry, here is a good read!

Conveying What Matters!

Poetry is a serious job.  What you write should move your listeners.  It should express the message you want to give. Poetry will not happen by luck.

 You have to read, analyze other poets, be passionate about one or multiple subjects.

Always try to think what freshness you can add to the subject you are talking about.

 And an important tip for becoming a successful poet is that, always keep handy a pen and notepad to jot down your inspirations, whenever and wherever you find it.

Note: Before being able to publish your fictional poems or nonfictional poems, you should write a substantial amount of poetic materials.

 To get recognized, you can always join some small local club for poets.

A great site that emphases on the poetry books for teens will be of a excellent help for amateur poets!

Publishings and Follw Ups!

Poetry as a verbal element is more ancient than poetry written on paper.  

Sometimes when you want to publish your poems in a magazine, you might need to follow certain rules and guidelines. 

 Do not get stifled by this restriction.

Pay attention and importance to adjustments and editing your stuff.  Till you are a big shot, you have to abide by certain rules.

Do your soft reminders after a few weeks. The magazine must be getting several entries.  

Never get flustered and frustrated. This will hamper your writing skills and unnecessarily distract you from your mission.

ShowFlipper and Its Association With Poetry!

""ShowFlipper:"

Little did Dattaprasad Thite know that his poetic career was an overnight drive away. 

After writing a few poems that he skeptically kept unpublished for years, he gave in to what ShowFlipper offered to all aspiring artists worldwide. 

Free online publicity. An opportunity to sell art online at very little cost.

When Dattaprasad visited the SF team, he did not know that his poetic verses would get a global platform for recognition. 

However, the founder of the online show-taining site, nudged the poet to publish them online in order to make his beautiful pieces of poetry available for the world to read.

""Poetry"

A poetic compilation of Life

Almost every poem he writes captures a unique and different perspective. He covers a wide range of emotions through his poetry compilations. 

Fun, pain, love, affection, sorrow, pleasure, anguish, tribulations, triumphs and frustrations are just some of the themes that dominate his poetry.

"Poetry for me is a flower, which might necessarily not be a fragrant one." believes Dattaprasad. 

His compilation of poems portrays an open mind that speaks of reality, closely connected with human emotions.

This sets his work apart and attracts more collectors to his Show for more poetic verses.

"It contains every human feeling and relation. It is a rare combination from a father's love for an unborn daughter or pen as a disciple's gratitude for his spiritual master. 

On an occasion, it criticises a terrorist and sometimes narrates nostalgia of a fallen tree.

 It also salutes a father's unconditional and unsaid affection for his son. 

Thus, it is a finest blend of human emotions." explained Dattaprasad on his poetic compilation, Petals.

Befriending a pen could not have been more fruitful and Dattaprasad emerged with a total 3500 poems.

 With his poems gaining steady popularity on SF Studio every passing day, he was driven to write more verses for his show. 

Dattaprasad has an upcoming music album that will soon be launched. It is in collaboration with an American band.

Sell Books Using Book Trailers

Gone are those days when you would browse through newspapers and journals to know which the latest book launch is or get a book review. Contradictory to our childhood ethics which taught us to read more and watch less, book trailers are quite a trend these days.

All thanks to the internet, digital books are close to replacing paperbacks and hardback books. That is not it. The sale of these books is now dependent on trailers. Yes, you heard right. Just like movies launch a short video introducing the storyline, books too are following this path! Be a ShowTainer, by launching a book trailer at www.showflipper.com and sell books for the massive audience online. Give an audition today!

What Are Book Trailers?

A short video showcasing the synopsis of the book.

Meant to create a buzz and generate interest amongst readers and critics about a book.

Be it fiction books, or non-fiction books and fantasy books, it accumulates everyone!

It has to be an attention-grabber. The whole idea behind the trailer is to bring in the moolah! 

Here are some great book trailers for kids who will love them to their fullest!

How Book Trailer Helps

An exciting blog attempts to reveal your personality type , with the way you choose books!

Why should you opt for a Book Trailer?

We are well aware that writers spend countless days and nights to complete a story and create an interesting plot for the audience. Writing is after all an art which takes the reader into another place, another time, another world.

By introducing this viral mode of communication, it may appear that all efforts and emotions are over-shadowed. Well, this is not the case and here is why.

Authors become Brand names

The author is recognized by readers and is coined into a celebrity of sorts. Every famous author of the mystery novels, best fiction books or best nonfiction books and fantasy books was once a complete unknown, but with the help of trailers readers can put a face to a name.

Build Connection

Most readers tend to purchase books from an author that they are already familiar with. Audiovisual medium is one of the best ways to connect with people. If you are a new author, the trailer can help familiarize new readers to your work.

Engagement

For the success of a book, it is important that people are talking about it. Readers and critics should be engaged in discussions about the merits of the book, its story, the author, comparisons with other books, and so on. Book trailers instigate such deliberations.

Also, creating trailers will allow the author to link it to his/her website in a video which will bring in constant conversation on the website.

Using an Existing Reading Medium

When eBook readers are already on the internet, it is easy for them to buy an eBook as soon as they watch a trailer of a book. Since the internet has already become a medium for readers and viewers, book trailers will simply bridge these two together.

Easier Marketing

There are many websites which specialize in hosting book trailers. Of course, YouTube is the most popular platform due to its wide reach. However, YouTube, and Facebook promotions are not sufficient in present times. Apart from social media platforms like Twitter, LinkedIn, and book sites other platforms like ShowFlipper are promoting this idea. Sites like ShowFlipper customize each video and promote it extensively in order to reach booklovers across the world

Similar to writing a fiction book, creating a book trailer is a game of imagination - you use live animation, scrolling of texts, and absolutely everything you can think of. It is the amalgamation of these thoughts that will lead to a superb marketing agenda.

The world of dot com is evolving every day and we all know that traditional media is bound to wallow if it does not progress with changing preferences. So if trailers are creating a stir and generating curiosity, why not try them out? After all these trailers are not only beneficial for book writers, but also a gift for book lovers!

Do's and Dont's for Book Trailers

Reveal the plot, but not the ending to maintain the curiosity of the readers.

Do not make the trailer a continuous and boring video.  

Keep giving interesting hints about the book here and there and pump up the reader’s curiosity.  

If you are using some musical elements to your book, then get involved and choose carefully an appropriate music.  Music is actually a great way to hold onto the reader’s attention.

Finally, once you are done with your trailing, actively share it in all social media for reader’s to view it.
