Last week saw the release of my second Amazon Kindle eBook, entitled 'Writing Historical Fiction: A Guide'.
It took me over fifteen years to write my first novel, 'The Queen's Favourite', mainly because I was doing it as a hobby and also because I have a terrible habit, which I'm trying to kick, of editing as I go. I figured those fifteen years were experience enough for me to pen a guide on how to write historical fiction, because this genre does throw up quite a few challenges to the newbie, such as - What 'voice' to use? What kind of dialogue? Should a trend be followed? How much to research?
The guide includes a few links to my website where planning templates which I used during the writing of my novel can be downloaded, and which I hope may be of some use.
I'm finding the whole process of writing eBooks extremely enjoyable, and I have to say, this time it was made so much easier by the software I used - Scrivener. Many writers already know about this piece of software, so I won't go into details. Suffice to say, if you're a writer, you should get it.
