Titles in British Historical Novels
Early review for Husband Material sounds promising! Don’t break my heart, Alexis Hall!
Gave $50 to donors choose books for Trans kids in red states. While I was getting the link for Donors Choose, it’s telling me that this one in Fort Smith Arkansas is matched right now.

The “Titles” article hurts my brain. I had already just done a little research on this where I learned that Viscount sort of means Vice-Count, that a female Earl is a Countess, and that Prince can mean all kinds of male relatives of the King, not just the sons. (Similarly, I learned that “pence” is the plural of “penny” and thus you can’t have one pence–well, I’m an American, now slightly less ignorant.)
From this article, I’m afraid all I’m taking away is that a Knight is referred to as Sir Firstname and that an heir apparent is a son while any other kind of heir is an heir presumptive. Good thing I’m not writing historical fiction!
I enjoyed this version of “House of the Rising Sun” and wonder about why the lyrics are different from the ones I’m used to.

They’ve been reinterpreted in BardCore!
Though there are different versions of the song for reals, long before the animals version. It seems to be a very old folksong.

Thanks! My boyfriend likes it, too, and has become a fan of the band!
