2013 HF Survey country breakdownThe 2013 historical fiction survey ran from October 16 to November 11 and reached 2440 participants from different parts of the world.

From the World of Historical Fiction is the initial summary of survey results. The data sheds light on preferences and habits of readers and offers interesting insights to writers and others in the publishing world. Click here to access the full 23-page report.

Stay tuned for further insights as I assemble responses regarding favourite authors – more than 5000 entries to collate – and favourite blogs/online sites as well as the deeper analysis that comes from cross-tabulation of results. Best way to ‘stay tuned’ is to follow A Writer of History (see the left side column for the place to provide your email).

I am very grateful for the support of Richard Lee, founder of the Historical Novel Society, and to a number of bloggers, authors and others in the reading community who contributed ideas and publicity for this year’s survey.

I look forward to your feedback.
