For any of our blog readers who may love historical fiction of any genre (romance, mystery, time-travel, etc.) the way I do, you may want to consider attending an upcoming conference. The 5th North American conference of the Historical Novel Society will be held in June of this year. We have an awesome lineup of agents and editors, all looking for historical fiction. Attendees and Guests of Honor will include Anne Perry (if you like mysteries you’ve probably read some of hers), Steve Berry, Diana Gabaldon, and others. Attendees' books can be bought and sold at the conference and during the special book signing. We have a special pre-conference seminar by Charlotte Cook, where an editor works one-on-one to whip that first five pages into shape.
This year the conference will be held in St. Petersburg, Florida, at the historic Vinoy hotel, known for hosting visiting presidents back before St. Petersburg became the sprawling city it is. For more information and to register, click here.
Hope to see some of you there in June.
