Karenne and I had a great discussion earlier today. I'm putting together a paid seminar on worldbuilding.
I write Science Fiction Romance, so worldbuilding is vital to me. However, you are creating just as much of a world in Regency Romance - with detail that others who know the period can go behind and check. Accuracy, detail, and continuity are huge aspects of creating any believable setting.
How much do I know about worldbuilding? Check out these links on my website.

- Kayelle Allen builds a complex world of rebellion against the machine of a menacing and cruel caste system based on species and rank. There is a whole sense of a developed street language, and not just one dark culture of the street, but also an elite culture, and a military protocol developed by the androgynous leader of the resistance.
