Historical Fiction Survey

If you are a lover of historical fiction, I think you’ll enjoy this post from the blog, A Writer of History. It includes an interactive historical fiction survey that has a good participation rate in only its third year:

Yes, I know some of you will think I’m crazy!

However, the topic of reading is always on my mind and this time, with advice from historical fiction editor and blogger Jenny Quinlan and New York Time best-selling author Beatriz Williams, fellow panel members at the upcoming Historical Novel Society’s Denver conference, I’m releasing a 3rd reader survey.

Topics include:

Preferences regarding famous or fictional characters

What makes characters come alive

Favourite historical novels (yes, this will be complicated)

Favourite historical fiction authors (let’s see how the rankings change this year)

Effects of social media on the reading experience

The post also includes a brief look at past results, including this chart:
