22454 Hi all,
My name is Kim, and I'm from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Like everyone else here I'm a history and historical fiction buff. My favorite period --and the one that first interested me in history --is that of the Middle Ages. I enjoy reading fiction based in all eras though. I'm looking forward to all of the great discussions.

22454 How do I paste the template on my entry? Or do I have to copy it by hand? Or do I need to have the template?

22454 Do you want me to put the template in? If so, then how do I copy and paste it to this thread? Or do I have to just write it out by hand? Thanks.

22454 There also is not enough variety in English-language historical fiction it seems, and not enough translated historical fiction (from other languages) either. Some periods and characters--such as the Tudors--are way overdone in my opinion. But of course it's very important for writers to write what they are interested in--somewhere an audience will be found.

22454 To what extent do publishers hire them, and what kinds of publishers? Surely the big publishers have enough money to. Does anyone know what practices the Germans follow?

22454 But the English novels have German translators...

22454 Why are many of the popular sellers by German authors not translated into English and sold at least in the UK, if not here (in the US)? The opposite seems to be true. A lot of English language popular sellers are translated into German--including ones about the Tudors. And I've also seen novels about England in German NOT available in English...! (i.e. Rebecca Gable') These would definitely sell here and in the UK as well. So would ones about Germany.

22454 Jeff, I am very interested in your book as I really want to read about medieval Scandinavia post-Viking period. Some interesting history takes place (Kalmar Union) and I'm really tired of just seeing mostly England-based medieval histfict(although I still read and enjoy it).

22454 Marilyn, your novel sounds interesting and I hope it is published someday. It's about time that more American historical fictions appears in the bookstores!

22454 Hi Mary Kate--nice to have you. What is your area of concentration in your graduate studies (Amer. lit, Brit. lit, etc.)?

22454 Sherry, I'm looking forward to reading your book.

22454 Yes, try Sharon Kay Penman's books. She has written several about Henry II and his family, some about family members(i.e King John's natural daughter Joan), and one about Edward IV and Richard III. She's also written some mysteries based during Henry II's time.

22454 I've just finished The Nightmare: A Mystery With Mary Wollstonecraft by Nancy Means Wright, and one of the Horse Diaries series, Maestoso Petra by Jane Kendall.

I've just started Susanna Gregory's An Unholy Alliance.

22454 If you can read German there are many options of course available through Amazon (most will be on The Middle Ages seems to be pretty popular in German language historical fiction.(As is the Thirty Years War.) Unfortunately not much of it seems available in English--I would love to read much more historical fiction based in Germany myself!

22454 Hi there, my name is Kim and I'm new to the group. I'm a history buff and an avid reader of historical fiction, incl. mysteries and romances. My favorite period was originally medieval but now I'll read any period up to World War II. I look forward to participating in the discussions:).
