Historical fiction author, E S Moxon joins us today to talk about how she approaches the genre and the creation of Wulfsuna, the first book in her Wolf Spear Saga.
Combining true Historical fiction with mythical elements of the Dark Ages, Elaine’s first book centers around the Wulsuna tribe and is set in a post-Rome Britain in the year 433AD Elaine has some fascinating insights in to how she immerses herself in the time period, her research techniques and some of the challenges she has faced as a self-published author.
Expert advice, re-enactment groups and the brilliant Orbis tool (a virtual GPS for different periods of history!) all help Elaine to create an accurate and rich world for her characters.
Elaine describes how Silver Wood Books helped her bring her book to market, and supported her through her editing phase, as well as giving guidance on her beautiful book cover.
Prose can be a little scary . . .
Elaine concluded with some great advice for would-be writers: Just start, get it down and don’t worry about writing perfect prose in the beginning.
