Back in 2015 I was invited to be a regular contributor on EHFA, the English Historical Fiction Authors blog. Recently, I joined the blog editors team. EHFA has been a wonderful experience. I have found a very supportive group of authors through the EHFA Facebook page, which anyone – book lovers or authors – can join. The FB page features the blog posts, but also has readers and authors contributing all types of great information on English history and all genres of English historical fiction – from mysteries, to biographical fiction, thrillers, adventures, romance and more. Many contributors to the blog and followers on the FB page are great about promoting each others’ posts, not only those on EHFA, but those appearing elsewhere. The FB page is a great place to discover new book releases and giveaways, too.
I tweet items posted to the blog and FB page all the time, but I know a lot of people don’t do Twitter, so I wondered what else I could do to promote the well-researched articles appearing on the blog. I tried posting many on my personal FB page, but those don’t draw many likes. (Facebook algorithms at work? Or my FB friends aren’t fans of English historical fiction?)
So my plan is to post a weekly line up of EHFA articles right here! Maybe a few of my blog followers will see something they want to read and share – please share! sharing is good – and I have a bunch of pals on Twitter who will retweet this post. Every little bit helps.
Go on – take a look at this week’s line up! Aren’t you curious about how pineapples relate to the English? Perspectives on the years before WWII? Beowulf’s monsters? and much more:
