Temporary Mistress update

For those of you who don't already follow me on FF.net or Archive of Our Own, I'm currently posting Temporary Mistress for what's basically a mass online beta, so feel free to join in the fun!

I'm looking for feedback to make the story better, so please tell me your thoughts if you do go over to read. You're welcome to sign up for accounts there and post comments/reviews, or email me directly at sophieturner1805 [at] gmail [dot] com.

Do be aware that this story decidedly contains portions only for mature audiences. I know in my other work I have "faded to black" pretty early on. That is not at all the case here. It's explicit. As we get closer to my actually publishing it, I'll explain a bit more why I wanted to write a story like that. But for now, here are the links:

Happy reading!

Meet the newest Austen Author: me!

I hinted at an announcement two posts ago, and here it is: I am joining Austen Authors!

This means I'll be blogging a bit less here, and more there (my debut post is this Friday, July 8), but I will cross-link any posts here and in my other social media spots, as I do for my guest posts on other blogs currently.

HMS Victory videos

Hello again! It feels like it's been forever even since my brief last post, and as that post indicated, I've been traveling, which has taken quite awhile to recover from (I can't say I'm even still completely recovered). Most of the trip was for work, but I did have opportunity to do long layovers in England on the way out and the way back (!), and so you can expect at least a few posts from that.

First up, since I'd already shown photos of HMS Victory, I thought I would post some updated video. Generally when I'm in Great Britain, I've been trying to go to new places, because there is still so much I want to see. I viewed this trip as a bonus, though, so I decided to spend my first night in England in Portsmouth, because I haven't been back in a few years, and really missed it. This gave me a chance to see the updates that have been made as part of the ship's renovation. Most notable is the more authentic decor in the captain's and admiral's cabins, and the much more Georgian color scheme.







A Regime of Fun

In my Austen Authors post today , I'm looking at the structured "regime of fun" that comprised entertainments of spa towns li...
