Defined simply as "fiction set in the past", historical fiction, at its core, sets out to tell a captivating story. The aim is to show readers exactly what life was like in a historical time period and to communicate that experience; but more importantly, to create adventures that transcend space and time. Providing the audience with an opportunity to be transported away from their everyday world will always keep the readers coming back for more. Historical fiction has become a hot genre in recent years, and Writing Historical Fiction has emerged as a publishing phenomena. With many historical novels appearing on bestseller lists the demand is clearly there. Writing Historical Fiction includes exclusive access to many practical exercises that enable you to develop characters, settings, and plots, that have the right touches of realism and creative embellishment.
