Are you thinking about writing a historical novel? Let me share what I’ve learned while writing Blue Water, Red Blood and The Cross on Cotton Creek – both traditionally published by Double Edge Press. The Florida Writers Association is sponsoring a Mini-Conference … “Day at the Bay” … on May 7th in Tampa. It will be held at the Clarion Inn, 9331 Adamo Drive, Tampa, FL 33619.
My presentation is designed to help you produce quality historical fiction. It defines what historical novels are (and what’s not). It presents a number of different methods to use history in fiction and some some starting points for doing the research that’s a requisite for this type novel. I’ll discuss historical readers preferences when reading the various classes of these books. What do they look for when they choose their favorite classification of historical novel? How important is accuracy … relevancy … rationality in works they select? What are the starting points when doing your research? I’ll pass along some tips that I hope will allow you to select subjects that will have added interest for your readers.
