    Historical Fiction Group

    Discussion in 'Collaboration' started by EdFromNY, May 8, 2015.

    From time to time, I see posts about historical fiction here, so I know I'm not the only lover of the genre. I had suggested a while back that there should be genre-based subforums where lovers of a particular genre could share suggestions on good books to read in the genre, discuss the challenges of writing in it and possibly form crit groups or beta-buddies.

    Alas, my suggestion was not taken. However, I am interested in forming such a group, possibly on Facebook (I'm open to other avenues), where members could hook up. Please PM me if interested.

    I'd be content with a stickied thread that contains ongoing discussion on the genre. I havent spent too much time with historical fiction but am starting to believe that I should. I'm not interested in other avenues though. Too many places to keep track of already.

    @Mike Hill and @GingerCoffee - I'm not sure if your "likes" mean that you are interested in forming a group or just that you approve of my efforts to do so. :D

    I'm interested in historical fiction (my WIP is 11th century England) but I'm not sure what I'd get from a group...

    I have since been informed that the forum's Development Team is currently working on a "Groups" function, so we will be able to do this here once the function is up and running.

    I might be interested - technically I do near-future and alt-history stuff but I have a feeling my methods and interests are a bit more in line with the historical fiction side of things since it's all based on culture, politic, economics, history - rather than sci-tech stuff that you find in the sci-fi community (I think the term for what I write is "Social Science Fiction" but who's keeping track..). That and I just like history.

    Sounds like a good fit. I'll let you know as soon as I get the go-ahead.
