I have had a passion for history since I was a child, have a degree in history, devour histories and historical novels. I have even had several author friends ask me when I was going to write historical fiction, yet I held off from doing so because I felt I could never know enough, that the research required would take far too long, etc. Hawker's book has put those fears to rest. Her advice on handling research is excellent, both before and especially during drafting. Her process, and her market and reader analysis provides a great road map to writers considering historical fiction. The book is also encouraging and filled with infectious enthusiasm.
"Making It In Historical Fiction," has truly inspired me to begin my own series at long last. It's the perfect companion to her previous writing guide, "Taking Off Your Pants." I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
However there was a couple of interesting things in this book and it was an interesting read in general and some what informative.
