Historical Fiction Bestsellers: Week of Dec. 1

The following titles are shown in order of appearance from
USA Today's Top 150:

  The Help  To Wed a Wild Lord

Water for Elephants  Sarah’s Key  The Land of Painted Caves

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children  Once Upon a Winter’s Eve  The Night Circus

The Valcourt Heiress  The Paris Wife: A Novel  Legacy

These are the books I consider to fall under the large umbrella of the historical fiction genre. Twelve books out of 150. That's the same as last week (though not the same books), and a far cry from the impressive genre presence of twenty in the top 150 seven weeks ago. Eight historical non-fiction books made the list, too.

By the way, Dare's romance is a digital novella. Don't you love how the digital revolution is opening doors for all types and formats of fiction?

As always, write for yourself, but it never hurts to keep an eye on what's selling in today's market, and to take a look at what these authors are doing right!
