I have written two Christmas stories set in Regency London, The Twelfth Night Wager and The Holly & The Thistle. What is important when setting a story during a holiday? And how do you capture the traditions of that special time, be Christmastide or Twelfth Night without taking the romance from center stage? The reader wants to experience the love story and love the characters while also experiencing the holiday. And if you are like me, you also want to include the history of the period and enough of the speech and customs to make it real. See more.
