Remember Colin the Incubus Nymph?

Ah, Colin, the incubus nymph. You know…Colin? The incubus? In the ring? The ring that houses Colin, Invoked to be Possessed and Inhabited by an Ever Powerful, Seductive and Enchanting British Incubus Spirit Nymph?

THAT Colin?

I am sad to report, Colin is not yours. Colin is going to live with a very fortunate college student (living in a dorm, won’t that be fun?) named Emmy, who will have Colin the Incubus Spirit Nymph for her very, very own. How fab! And author Esri Rose, who asked for Colin’s, um, housing? Ensorcelment?

Whatever you call it, Esri is working on an interview with Colin the Ever Powerful Seductive and Enchanting. Word!

    I had so much fun with that. Now I have a new contest where I invite people to riff on my cover. Hey, it’s gonna happen anyway, right? I might as well give prizes.

    Well, the concept does give a more literal meaning to the expression “fuck a duck.”

    I’ve been thinking about this (way too much), but isn’t it pretty unfair for Colin to be English, an incubus and a nymph as well? Honestly, Colin, think about what you’re doing to us poor ladies.

    And surely he must be torn by his triple natures. It’s either:

    *screw partners to an exquisite death (incubus)

    *screw lest he should die (nymph-if we go w/Showalter’s version; confused as to why he’s male if we go by classical Greek)

    *or screw under the cover of darkness and voluminous night clothes (the Regency English in him at this point is horrified by his slutty two alter egos. And yet…mildly intrigued as he’s along for the ride.)

    Poor Colin. Let’s take advantage of him.

    I think he’s during the Georgian period, so the nightclothes aren’t too voluminous. Which is a good thing. I’m no historical expert, though. Don’t even play one on YouTube.

    “Voluminous”…seems like kind of a romance title word. “Her Voluminous Secret.”

    OMG, I was going to go crazy if I didn’t double check, lol! I live in fear of getting this stuff wrong, and I still could be fer shur. I’m no expert either.

    Austen wrote P&P in 1813. So, according to a couple ‘o sources I looked up on the fly, it was written during the Regency. I suppose, since I’m no Austen expert either, that it could very well have actually taken place during the Georgian period.

    And their night clothes are voluminous compared to mine. Hehe.

    Do love your voluminous title though.

    K, gonna go console Colin some more.

    Me too, EJ MCKenna.

    Must be all that romance reading. It’s like alcohol, every HEA kills a few brain cells. :-)

    Phadem, OMG, we’re both right. From Wikipedia:

    The Georgian era is a period of British history, normally defined as including the reigns of the kings George I, George II, George III and George IV, i.e. covering the period from 1714 to 1830, (with the sub-period of the Regency, defined by the Regency of George IV as Prince of Wales during the illness of his father George III). Sometimes the reign of William IV (1830 to 1837) is also included.

    I always think of J.A. having tea in the Pump Room in Bath, a city of Georgian architecture. So I associate her with that time period. Now I know to be more specific. Thanks!
