Art in Historical Fiction Series


Submissions are now closed 4/26/2015. 

Welcome to the information page about the “Love of Art in Historical Fiction Series”. The series is a monthly ongoing column featuring author interviews and book reviews with writers of art-based historical fiction. The series was initially inspired by the two-month “Art in Historical Fiction Interview Series” at the Historical Novel Society websiteThe series was hugely well-received by readers, and because of its popularity, and at the request from readers for its continuation, plus the fact there are so many excellent art tie-in books and authors who weren’t part of the original series and new releases yet to debut, I decided to carry on the fascinating behind-the-scenes interviews and reviews here via my blog.

How it works: The last Saturday of each month I feature an author with a book review and interview, along with supporting artwork images. In special cases some months two authors and their books are featured.

Readers, I hope you will visit my blog each month or join Facebook group: “Love of Art in Fiction” to keep abreast of the newly debuted reviews and interviews.

Writers, if you have an already published or soon-to-be-released historical novel with an art tie-in that you’d like featured, please email me at stephaniereneedossantos@ to learn how to become part of the continuing series.

Submissions are ongoing and open to all Indie, small press, and traditionally published novels and authors.

Again, this is a continuation of the June & July, 2014 “Art in Historical Fiction Interview Series” at the Historical Novel Society, running under the new name:

“Love of Art in Historical Fiction Series”
