Happify December

If you’ve subscribed to my newsletter, Corsets and Kisses, you know I have a fascination with historical idioms and ideals and delight in sharing my discoveries with my readers. In December’s issue I explore the phrase Happily Ever After

Sometimes my curiosity leads me down twisting paths and it was on one of these paths that I encountered an archaic word that, long ago in a bygone era, was considered perfectly proper English.

Sometime around 1620 the word Happify meant just what it ought to: to make happy.

So, let’s Happify December with all sorts of fun events and fabulous giveaways in celebration of the coming release of Once Upon a Regency: Timeless Tales and Fables!

Once upon a time nine historical romance authors created a fairy tale inspired Regency world…
