Why dystopian?

I could get into the whole Wikipedia page on what dystopian is, but let’s use the Merriam-Webster one. It’s shorter.

an imaginary place where people lead dehumanized and often fearful lives

Regency England on the other hand is known for balls, gowns, overindulgance, and a copious amout of romance books.

What happens when the two mesh together? A dark Regency England, with funeral pyres burning in the countryside, riots in London’s streets, and romance waiting to happen.

It’s not hard to imagine the romance aspect, but the world itself is one of secrets, famine, death, and betrayal.


About K. Reed

Romance author with a twist. Too many post-apocalyptic stories, movies, and what-ifs crowded her head, and K Reed decided to do something about it. So she plotted one out, decided an historical post-apocalyptic romance was the way to go, and wrote that one instead. A lover of all things historical, of strong heroes with equally strong heroines, and of sexy pirates, she’s going to explore the dystopian world of plague-ridden 1804 and the gritty criminal element of Victorian England. Luckily she has an understanding family, supportive friends, and a day job that offers her the flexibility she needs to plot, plan, and write. Sure, one day she’d like to travel the country in search of fantastic storylines and great locale pictures, but for now she’ll stick to the east coast and the internet. @kreedauthor www.kreedauthor.com www.kreedauthor.wordpress.com kreedauthor@yahoo.com
