Castles, Customs, and Kings: True Tales by English Historical Fiction Authors

I am fortunate to  be a member of  the English Historical Authors blog. We blog everyday on our website on a different era and subject. One member had the idea of putting the best of them together in a book. We are all very proud of the result.

Volume II is also available.






A compilation of essays from the English Historical Fiction Authors blog, this book provides a wealth of historical information from Roman Britain to early twentieth century England. Over fifty different authors share hundreds of real life stories and tantalizing tidbits discovered while doing research for their own historical novels.

From Queen Boadicea’s revolt to Tudor ladies-in-waiting, from Regency dining and dress to Victorian crime and technology, immerse yourself in the lore of Great Britain. Read the history behind the fiction and discover the true tales surrounding England’s castles, customs, and kings.
