Do you ever feel that you’ve overstretched yourself? I have two websites, two blogs, several Facebook pages and two Twitter feeds, and it’s still a mystery to me how, when and why they all link together. So I apologise for doing this the wrong way. But one of the blogs I follow avidly is written by fellow historical fiction writer Helen Hollick, and recently she posted an excellent interview with another author, MK Tod, on what it is that readers want from historical fiction.
Now I know that I should be able to link cleverly to this post, so that it shows here, but it’s all too much for me – I’m having to lie down in a darkened room with a plate of Jaffa Cakes to hand, and simply give you the link instead: https://ofhistoryandkings.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/historical-fiction-what-do-readers-want.html
So big apologies to both Helen and MK for my technical duncery, but I do recommend it as an excellent read – I agree with every word.
