    Love this site! I’m co-teaching a session on HIstorical Research for Writers soon, and I’ll be sure to steer people toward this site!

  3. I’ve been reading your posts for some months now, and would like to contribute a piece of my own. How do I go about it?

    • Hi Ann. Thanks for your message. I’ll look further into your historical novels and send you a private message via your Facebook page.

      Below is some info to give people some insight into how contributors are selected:

      Becoming a contributor to Writing Historical Novels is by invitation, but established historical novelists are welcome to express their interest. (For established historical novelists who are interested, you can express your interest via the Message button on the Writing Historical Novels Facebook page.)

      Generally, contributors will have three or more historical novels already released by major publishers, and will have an area of strong knowledge or expertise to draw on in their historical novels and their discussion about their historical novels.
      Their historical novels will typically be in print in at least the US and the UK, so readers around the world can get hold of print copies if they like what they read here on Writing Historical Novels.

      They will typically be currently active writing historical novels that are published by major publishers (as opposed to someone who, say, has not had a novel published in 10 years).

      Exceptions may be made for people self-published or published by small or medium sized publishers, but you will need to stand out as someone who is working at a level on par with being published by major publishers (in terms of content, editing, professionalism, distribution, having a readership for your historical novels and so on).

      Attention is also given to providing a good mix of novelists each year, so most site visitors hopefully have at least several regular contributors whose articles are of strong interest them and so there is variety on the site.

  4. Thanks for your reply, Steve. What a shame! The rules exclude me at present, I’m afraid. It’s more than 10 years since my traditionally published novels (by Chatto&Windus, Pan and Arrow) were all available. A fifth was indie published in 2011. Since then I’ve been re-publishing my old novels myself, and they’re currently only in ebook format. But never mind – I shall continue to enjoy your posts. Well done for featuring historical fiction – it’s a great way to discover the past!
