Seven rules for writing historical fiction

So I admit other than to fulfil a review obligation I have not read a historical novel of any sort in years. As a kid I absolutely adored Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books, but as I got older I found a lot of historical books tended to annoy me by having too much explanation of the time period in such a way that felt unnatural and put me off.

I’m certainly not implying all historical novels are like that, I am sure that most are totally awesome and very natural in how they incorporate things to do with the ‘history’ side of the book, but I came across this article and thought I would share!

If you write historical romance I hope it has some helpful tips for you!
