In the first picture we are under the Great Piazza arches. Kitty's house in The Finish is the one in the background on the corner. In real life this was occupied by John Bradley's gin shop (which features in The Finish) and above it by Mother Gould's brothe...

Venus Squared - The Finish, re-envisioned
So there I was busy posting The Finish and it's sequel The Surety on the Harper Collins website Authonomy and I suddenly had a brainwave: there will be a quartet of books, each being part of the Venus Squared series. Here are the titles and their subtitles:...

Eye Candy
In the 18th and 19th Centuries lovers exchanged miniature eye paintings as tokens of their affections, such as that in the V&A. They were usually created by using watercolour on ivory. The interesting thing is that, whilst the lover could identify their bel...

Pricing your book
Pricing your book is an everlasting conundrum for authors who
chose to self-publish. With little, if any, overheads and no one to pay but
yourself, there is no ‘set in stone’ criteria by which you gauge what price to
put on your words. Amazon would have you...

The Devil's Own Handiwork
"I have experienced much
hardship and been forced to view death on many occasions. I was therefore, not
bothered by the corpse flies. Thankfully, the all-pervasive aroma of spice
somewhat mitigated that of decay and corruption. All the same, I entered the
r...

Covent Garden before and after
At the end of the summer I took a walk around Covent Garden to take some photographs for the 'before and after' posts I'm going to make. Here's the first - St. Paul's Covent Garden. The face that you see in the square is actually the back of the Church. The...

What it was to be a woman in the 18th century
There have been times in my life when I have wished I had never been born female - not in a transgender way - but insofar as it has always seemed that men have the better deal. Despite the fact that women have more freedom in all aspects of life than ever b...

Publish or be damned

At her toilette
"La
Jupe relevée" by François Boucher, 1760 - and the dog is doing what
dogs do. 18th century women did not wear knickers. In fact there was no underwear as
we know it until around the 1920s, when skirts started getting shorter.
Even in the prim and pro...

63,000 prostitutes
The
number of prostitutes in London during the 18th century could have been
as high as 63,000 at any given time. In this picture we can see the
link boy, who was a street urchin with a burning torch who would light
the way - but who would also aid a har...
