ANNOUNCING A New Historical Fiction Site!!!!

Do you remember back in September when a few blogger friends and I  got together for The Historical Fiction Blogger Round Table Event?  It was an idea that originated from Marie of The Burton Review.  She let the bug out and it soon spread into this  phenomenal creative energy that had us posting giveaways, reviews, creative posts, author guest posts and interviews..and so much more.

Well...Since that wonderful event was such a huge success, all eight of us historically-crazed- ladies decided to get together and make it an official site!


Charter Members:

Allie at Hist-Fic Chick
Amy at Passages to the Past
Arleigh at Historical-Fiction.com
Heather at The Maiden's Court
Lizzy at Historically Obsessed
Marie at The Burton Review


The Historical Fiction Blogger Round Table site will be the hub place for new historical fiction releases involving author announcements, giveaways and all other release events scheduled on a monthly basis- and linked to our own individual blogs.  I could go on and on- but to get a picture of what I'm talking about, please visit our new site and feel free to leave a comment:)

We love our readers- so please come follow as well!  2010 will be an exciting year for readers of Historical Fiction with fantastic authors ready to delight us with stories of the past screaming to be told.

Be sure to join the fun- See you there!

Can't wait for this!!! Thanks for stopping by and thank you for the blessing for my son-in-law. My daughter is having a hard time with this deployment. I think because she is so far away from family...but all will be well...

Hi, are there any Dorothy Dunnett readers on this blog? If so, do you think anyone has come close to her Lymond and Niccolo series? I'm looking for good, exciting, but historically accurate novels for the Christmas vacation period. J.G. Harlond

Hi Lucy. I'd love for you to review: THE AFFLICTED GIRLS A Novel of Salem. If you'd like to take a look, let me know and I can send you a PDF copy of the book. Thanks. Suzy Witten

(From the Book Announcement Press Release):
------------------------------
THE AFFLICTED GIRLS A Novel of Salem by writer-researcher SUZY WITTEN.

This historical fiction debut offers a brand new theory of the Salem Witch-Hunt, revealing an unknown “missing link” in the chain of events, which is certain to rewrite American history and put this 300-year-old unsettled mystery to rest. Something terrible happened in Salem Village in 1692 . . . but it isn’t what you think.

Witten considers herself lucky that historians missed this “smoking gun” uncovered while she was researching the Salem historical record. Centering her story on Salem Village and its inhabitants, exploring their dark household corners as if she is solving a crime, this author adeptly details how the disintegration occurred while spinning familiar facts in new directions--with the mysterious afflictions finally explained.

Part parable, part star-crossed romance, and part supernatural venture, this is an intuitive human history--and inhuman--spun with a modern twist. Suzy Witten was a Walt Disney Studios Fellowship Finalist for this story.

A Paperback Original, historical fiction (for ages 16 and older), 456 pages, published 11/09 by Dreamwand (Books) (ISBN: 978-0-615-32313-8).
