100+ Places to Market Your Historical Fiction Book

Historical fiction places the reader in the past, taking them to live through historical events through the eyes of the people involved in them. Though it still is fiction, and may be thought of as speculative, historical fiction is fascinating because it adds a living dimension to past events that we only usually know of through our history books and class lectures. Historical fiction spans locations and time – from the Greek and Roman civilizations, to British historical fiction, to historical fiction set in feudal Japan, and so much more. Indeed the depth and breadth that historical fiction spans is formidable but amazing, and there’s something for everyone – whether you’re a history buff or you’re just in it for some great reads.
