Know the Heroine from Courting the Stationmaster's Daughter by Juli D Revezzo @julidrevezzo #RLFblog #historicalromanceJuli D Revezzo, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter by Juli D Revezzo

Genre: Historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
After Honorine Camden is jilted, leaving her stunned and sparking a scandal in her tiny London borough of Wallflower, she’s devastated. But when she overhears her father, the stationmaster, talking about arranging a party for their newly-minted underground railway station, she volunteers to help. Although she’s intrigued with the handsome assistant stationmaster, Shane MacIntyre, she never expects to fall head-over-heels in love with him. Unfortunately, one tragic accident might derail everything.

Know the Heroine from Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Since you said it’s late, Honorine will usually pull out her collection of dried flowers, and sort through them–or pick up a book. Her go-to is anything on natural history, but right now, she’s trying to finish Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Apple fritters.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Her long dress with the holly garland around the hem and cuffs is her favorite. If she can forgo the bustle, she’s most comfortable without it.
Does she know how to fix things?
Not really. She can dig a post hole, though. Anything gardening related that can be applied to fixing anything? She could do that.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Where do we start? She’s trying to organize this party, you see, and every little detail seems to keep spiraling out of control. She’s only got a week left, and still no venue, and then, there was this little thing of the train wreck on her father’s route…
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Stiff and quiet. She’s not really a child person.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Groggy, usually misses her father leaving early. But lately, she’s finding it hard to sleep so, has been getting up with the household staff, before dawn.
How does she handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
Usually quiet and demure. If there are friends around, she prefers to sit and talk with them.
Maid or takes care of herself?
She has a maid but can take care of herself, if necessary.
Proper dress or casual clothes?
Proper dress.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
Rolled up.
Powdered wig or natural hair?
Natural hair, usually braided.
Carriage or horseback?
Underground train, if you please! J It’s the newest, latest way to get from Wallflower to London and points beyond. (Plus, her father, and her beloved, run the subway station in Wallflower, so it’s almost required conveyance for Honorine.)
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Juli D Revezzo, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Vesta’s Clockwork Companions by Juli D Revezzo

Genre: Steampunk Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): 1
When Vesta Bartlett, a wealthy alchemist and inventor, arrives in England to finalize an arranged marriage and help overhaul a family friend’s outdated ironworks, she never expects to find the family so secretive, nor to develop feelings for her fiancé’s younger brother, Henry.
But the growing attraction between Vesta and Henry is just the beginning of their troubles. Things really heat up when they’re drawn into a secret project for Queen Victoria’s military, one that requires Vesta’s knowledge of clockwork and Henry’s iron.
An epidemic has wiped out all the dogs in Britain, and beyond. If the military fail in their effort to restore the species, a clockwork creation may be all that stands in the way of a world without canine companionship.
Are Vesta and Henry up to the challenge?
Why did you write this book?
I wrote Vesta’s Clockwork Companions because I wanted to write a Victorian romance and this young woman (Vesta) popped into my head. She happened to be a Texan blacksmith and alchemist who was betrothed to an Englishman, what was she doing with her clockwork when the young man wasn’t looking, I wondered, why did she keep chatting with his brother? So with that idea came the story and all the little background steampunk elements that ended up in the book.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Fantasy, romance, classics. I read pretty much anything.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I have several. Elric of Melniboné, and Lily Bart and Lawrence Selden from House of Mirth by Edith Wharton, Clarissa Dalloway, from Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, Jacob Flanders from Jacob’s Room (also by Virginia Woolf), Jon and Kira from The Yden series by Suzanne G. Rogers, (also Jessamyn from her book Jessamyn’s folly.), King Arthur, Morgana, Tibby (from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares), and inspector Abberline from the movie From Hell, Zoe, and indeed the whole crew of Firefly, and many, many, many more.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment, I’m getting Vesta’s Clockwork Companions out there, and working on the next book in my paranormal fantasy series, Antique Magic, as well as the next book in my fantasy romance series Celtic Stewards Chronicles.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I have several I had hoped to have out this year, but realistically I might only manage one more this year. Hopefully, that will be the Antique Magic book I mentioned above depending on rewrites and edits and all that usual pre-publication jazz. If I’m really lucky, I might have two, out before the end of the year, but I’m not holding my breath.

New Server — New Power

RLFblog has attracted so many visitors we crashed the server three times in the past month. On September 20th, we had no visitors on the blog so that we could move to a new, more powerful and roomier server. This should hold us for a bit! It also means I can add even more services. Look for new things in 2018, such as Free Book Friday and other goodies for readers (and authors)!

Not only does RLF post automatically to Triberr with a reach of several million, each post is also featured on the Romance Lives Forever Pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/romance-lives-forever-rlfblog/ as well as on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/RomanceLivesForever/ and Twitter https://www.twitter.com/kayelleallen When you like, follow and share it increases the reach.

Scottish-born Linton Morrison spent his entire life in luxury, whiling away the hours in intense study of the tarot and the cards’ hidden meanings, but until he met the lovely Emilie Maigny, he would never have guessed how important his study might be–to his life and Emilie’s survival when terrible evil strikes.

House of Dark Envy by Juli D Revezzo @julidrevezzo #RLFblog #Victorian #romanceWelcome Juli D Revezzo author of House of Dark Envy, a new Victorian Gaslamp romance.

Why did you write this book?

I’d been reading some gothic romance that autumn (this was 2015), and had also seen a PBS special concerning Nikola Tesla, around the same time. The two seemed to combine and end up giving “birth”, so to speak, to the hero, Felix and …well, out came House of Dark Envy.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Usually fantasy, romance, science fiction. Some classics. If the story is good, the genre doesn’t matter.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Elric of Melniboné. One of the heroes of Michael Moorcock’s Eternal Champion series.

What are you working on at the moment?

A couple different things. I just released my first audiobook of my Gothic paranormal romance, Lady of the Tarot, so I’m promoting that heavily. I’m also working on an historical fantasy short novel, set during World War II.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Right now, I’m aiming to finish up what will be the third in my paranormal romance series Celtic Stewards Chronicles, and also that historical fantasy I mentioned above as well as the next installment in my paranormal fantasy series, Antique Magic. I hope to have that out before mid-June and with any luck, the next Antique Magic novel before Halloween.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Genre: House of Dark Envy is a Victorian Gaslamp romance (that is, romance with a hint of fantasy)

Book heat level (based on movie ratings):

Sweet (as far as the love scenes go, but there’s a fight scene at the end—So, PG, I think?)

Surely, lightning can’t strike twice…
