**RAKES AND RASCALS WILL BE TEMPORARILY CLOSING DOWN FROM TODAY, THURSDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER, AND NORMAL SERVICE WILL RESUME ON MONDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER.**

 

Regular visitors to the Rakes and Rascals blog will recall that we attended the first ever Historical Romance Retreat, held at the historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington State in 2016. We are excited to be attending again and, this year, it is being held at the Mission Inn, a historic Spanish-mission style hotel, in Riverside, California.

Once again, we will have the opportunity to mingle with lots of authors and fellow lovers of historical romance as well as hanging out with some lovely Facebook friends, both old and new.

There are exciting events to look forward to including Historical Presentations and Workshops, Afternoon Tea, a Speakeasy Club, a Highlanders and Highwaymen Gambling Night, a Book Signing and Historical Fair, culminating in a Grand Masquerade Ball on the last night.

If you would like to read about our adventures and see some of the photos, look out for our series of posts in October.

Organised chaos

We are now ensconced in our new apartment but, as you can see from the photo, everything is still in a state of organised chaos. We do, however, have access to the internet which means I can post on Rakes and Rascals again. Over the next few weeks, I ‘m hoping to catch up on reviewing the books I read before the move and there will be more ‘In the Spotlight’ author interviews as well.

Moving House 2

We are moving to a new apartment after Easter and, as you can imagine everything is chaotic at the moment. Luckily, most of my books are contained on my Kindle, but my husband has a HUGE number of Railway and World War II  related books, all of which need to be packed. Then, there is my son’s VAST collection of DVD box sets which appears to cover every TV series ever produced from the original Hawaii 5-O to Mr Selfridge. Therefore, over the next few weeks, until we are settled into our new apartment, blog posts will be few and far between and I hope you will bear with me in the meantime.
