How do I find a publishing company for my historical fiction book?


The historical fiction genre appeals to readers and writers alike. The ability to use dialogue and portray emotions makes historical fiction less an exercise in history and more of a human adventure. By using unique characters and rich dialogue, historical fiction writers are able to effectively develop themes of social interaction and dynamic family relationships with a depth that a biography would have lacked.
