The Joys of Writing Historical Fiction

Faint Promise of Rain - Anjali Mitter Duva The Vintner's Daughter - Kristen Harnisch The Last Wife of Attila the Hun - Joan Schweighardt

This week's post (which went up on Wed. to avoid April Fool's Day, but which I was then too busy to post!) is part of a joint blog project with three other authors: Anjali Mitter Duva, Kristen Harnisch, and Joan Schweighardt—whose book covers are shown above.  Kristen actually has a new book, The California Wife, which is due in May and not yet listed in the Booklikes database. We decided to get together and write about what we love about researching and creating historical fiction. So take a look not just at my post but at theirs (links at the bottom). The range of approaches is interesting in itself.
