Gals, Gowns, and Handsome Men by Jade Lee / Kathy Lyons

Last week, I had the pleasure of being an author at the Historical Romance Retreat in Spokane, WA. Delilah Marvelle and Renée Bernard did an incredible job. I thought I was way cool in a teal blue Regency gown created by Victoria Vane and a costume from the Titanic movie. I was put to shame by the fabulous outfits so many women wore. And as for the men, oh la la, they looked quite impressive. Workshops included writing using a quill (I was horrible), a perfume class (very fun), a hat-making class with Eloisa James (mine fell apart), and of course author chats. Delilah worked with the chef to create amazing historical foods which we ate during Low Tea, Absinthe night, and the Grand Ball. We also got to see a fun period movie at the Bing Crosby theater, and then we enjoyed ballroom dances at the Grand Ball.

There are many pictures on the website www.historicalromanceretreat.com. My poor photography skills were not up to the task but I will show you some of the wonderful costumes that I was able to capture on my phone. Next year’s retreat will be in the Los Angeles area. I won’t be allowed to come as an author again next year (they don’t repeat authors two years in a row) but I might be there as a huge historical reader and fan. Maybe I’ll see you there!
