I’m usually the sort of author who can write a couple different subgenres at the same time. You’ll find anything from a Young Adult book to a Historical Romance open on my computer. But lately I’ve been so focused on getting the final book done in my Young Adult series that all my other books have fallen to the wayside.
The problem is I need to get working on my next historical; book two in my Seduction Series. So how do I get into the mood to switch from a first person YA to a third person Historical Romance? I read, of course!
Within the next few days I’ll be hoarding my favorite historical romances, looking for something to help inspire and get me into the mood. Julie Garwood writes my absolute favorite historical romances. In fact she was the first romance I read at the impressionable age of sixteen. It doesn’t hurt to have some favorite historical movies playing either: Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice. And I can’t forget classical music! Yep, there are a variety of ways to get into the mood.
So help me out here… do you have a favorite historical movie or book that you enjoy?
