Curious Opinion about Writing Historical Fiction – What Do You Think?

Summary

So many people have opinions about writing historical fiction. Another blogger shared her view which swept across the historical fiction boards and groups I am a part of, and made me curious . . . what do you think?

Historical Fiction Recommended Series

I came across this interesting resource dealing with history and/or historical fiction and decided to share the information.

Nathan Wuertenberg is a staff researcher at the Aull Center for Local History, a division of the Morgantown Public Library System. He received his doctorate in history from The George Washington University and is a co-host with Mike McClung of Aull About History, a local history podcast produced in partnership with The Dominion Post.

Aull Center for Local History & Genealogy Research. It’s an annex of the public library in Morgantown, West Virginia.

His blog will appear on the library’s website at http://www.mympls.org/. The first entry is here (http://www.mympls.org/fact-checking-fiction-presidential-history-recommendations-by-nathan/) and the second, which he will be making a TikTok for next week is here (http://www.mympls.org/fact-checking-fiction-haunted-history-recommendations-by-nathan/).

He also has two planned for November, although one of them isn’t strictly historical fiction. The first is about classic novels that were influenced by their author’s experiences in historical wars (for Veterans Day). The second will be historical fiction about Native American history (for Native American Heritage Month).

The Peep Show

So, I’ve added a new page to this website and blog called ‘The Peep Show’ going along with my theme of The Hist Fic Chic.

This page is dedicated to book trailers and videos for historical fiction novels and authors, as well as podcasts and Youtube channels.

Sorry to disappoint but no hot chicks here … unless you are looking for the beautiful strong men and women of historical fiction. I mean, come on, how can you resist looking at the alluring eyes of Anne Boleyn or the strong arms of Jamie Fraser on the covers of historical fiction (or sub-genre) novels?

You know what is even more enticing? READING about these amazing people!! So, watch the videos and get some ideas for your next tantalizing read!

If you are a historical fiction, historical romance, historical fantasy, historical time-travel, or any other sub-genre author connected to historical fiction, and you would like to include your book trailer to this site, please contact me at histficchickie@gmail.com!!

Here’s one of mine to get things going:

“Blood and Ink” by D. K. Marley – available in ebook, paperback, hardcover, and Audible.
