Today I feel like giving away some of my tips for writing historical fiction. Note, my views on the matter are subjective. I have always had an interest in history and historical fiction, but I was always hard-pressed to find good pieces of work. Although, to be honest, I have many librarian friends and they have a hard time finding me any book I will like. I am rather picky. Anyways, onward to the main course.
- Historical Fiction does not have to a difficult read. – You can write it in a semi-modern day voice. It also helps the reader who wants to know about the time era and does not want to decipher every word. The author can write in a few era appropriate phrases and such to immerse the reader. But I find some books with a glossary may just want to lean into a more immersive experience.
