The Prince Regent

THE REGENCY PLUME Newsletter is your link to learning more about England's delightful Regency period, when a gentleman was a gentleman all the way down to his polished Hessians...and young ladies still blushed, especially if caught staring overlong at milord's buckram-padded shoulders, or Oh my! his thigh-covered inexpressibles!
A Regency romance is romance at its most elegant--entertainment of the first order.  Whether sweet or sensual, a romp or a mystery, a Regency romance novel transports readers to a colorful time that exists no more, but which takes place in a fascinating world that still exists today--England!
Most Regency romance authors have spent years researching this long-ago, though hardly forgotten, time period known as the English Regency.  And we take great delight in creating fresh new characters--our heroes and heroines--whose lives freely intermingle with those of 'real-life' people like Beau Brummell, Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, or even the Prince Regent.
I became so engrossed in my study of the English Regency period, that in 1991, I began to publish a newsletter for other writers and Regency romance fans called THE REGENCY PLUME.  During its 16 years of publication, THE REGENCY PLUME boasted over 1000 subscribers from all over the world. THE REGENCY PLUME ceased publication in 2006, but all back issues and all Regency research material are still available for purchase. Please visit every page on this website for ordering information!


The sole aim of THE REGENCY PLUME is to enrich the reader's knowledge of the Regency period and to aid authors who are setting books within that time frame in their quest for historical accuracy.  If you are a published author, aspiring writer or Regency romance fan who yearns to know more about what life was like in England or Ireland, in London, Bath, or Brighton in the early 1800s, you'll want to join the hundreds of other Regency devotees who experience 19th Century England via THE REGENCY PLUME Newsletter.

All articles published in THE REGENCY PLUME are well-researched and documented with the author's sources.  The factual and entertaining articles are written by such favorite Regency romance authors as Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley, Emily Hendrickson, Shannon Donnelly, Gail Eastwood, Jo Ann Ferguson, Elizabeth Boyle, Margaret Evans Porter, June Calvin, Anne Barbour, Barbara Miller, Sheri Cobb South, Shirley Kennedy, Lynn Collum, Jeanne Savery, Alissa Baxter, Victoria Hinshaw, Jo Manning, Cheryl Bolen, Marilyn Clay, and many others.
Articles cover such interesting topics as the Season and court presentation, Almacks, London town homes, correct title usage, Regency period books and magazines, clothing, dances, the hunt, theatre and the opera, cosmetics and remedies, daily life, the Napoleonic war, travel during the Regency, carriages, horse racing, and much, much more.  Many articles feature rare period illustrations.  In addition, you'll find bios of all your favorite Regency personalities, such as the Prince Regent, Lord Byron, Beau Brummell, the Duke of Wellington, the famous Duke of Devonshire--the most sought-after bachelor in the realm, the Almack Patronesses, Lord Nelson and Emma, and many others.
Each issue of THE REGENCY PLUME also lists every new Regency romance novel published in that two-month period, with previews of many.  To view a complete index to all articles published during the past 16 years in THE REGENCY PLUME Newsletter, click on the Back Issue Article Index headings on the left.  All back issues of the newsletter are available for purchase. 
Additional research material on the English Regency period, such as books on Regency-period furniture, reproduction historical maps, historical folios, and books on how you can write and sell your own Regency romance novel are also available through THE REGENCY PLUME.  For more information on these products and how to order them, click on the Regency Research Material heading on the purple bar at the left side of your screen.
