The Historical Novel Society picks SUCCESSIO!

HNSlogo_fullWell, this is exciting!

The Historical Novel Society indie review team has reviewed SUCCESSIO and given it a wonderful write-up. But the cream on the cake is that it has been awarded the accolade of “Editor’s choice”!

Not only is there that glory, but SUCCESSIO will automatically be longlisted for the HNS Indie Award 2015, the results of which will be announced at the HNS Conference 2015 in Denver USA.

Selection by your peers is the hardest test. Well, after that by readers!

The HNS is an open and welcoming organisation with strong presence in many countries, especially the US and Australia. It embraces some of the most ‘famous names’ in writing e.g. Diana Gabaldon, Bernard Cornwell, Elizabeth Chadwick, Simon Scarrow, among others, but also enthusiasts and readers of historical fiction.

Open to readers, big name, small press, mainstream and indie authors, here it is in its own words:
We are a literary society devoted to promoting the enjoyment of historical fiction. We are based in the USA and the UK but we welcome members (who can be readers or writers) from all round the world. Through our print magazines, conferences, website, social media and through the dynamism of our membership we help bring the excitement of these novels to the widest audience.’

And I’m off to the conference in September (5th to 7th), and I’ll speaking about social media.

STOP PRESS: The conference was brilliant! Read the reports…
