Publisher Comments:

Finally, a guide for historical fiction writers that addresses the unique challenges of researching, writing and marketing their work.

Writers looking to the past for a story to tell will welcome novelist Persia Woolley's one-of-a-kind guide to the fundamentals for creating good, accurate historical fiction.
-- advice on how to get the most out of research trips
-- storytelling essentials, including plot and characterization
-- instruction from classic historical fiction such as Gone With the Wind and Doctor Zhivago
-- creating a compelling story "arc" as it sweeps through generations and locations
-- weaving real historical events into storylines for authenticity
-- how to develop characters whose lives touch the lives of readers

The book covers research resources — from libraries to the Internet; and marketing issues — finding an agent, what editors and publishers look for in historical fiction, and what to expect if Hollywood comes calling.
