Historical Fiction Bestsellers: Week of Dec. 8

The following titles are shown in order of appearance from
  The Help  The Scottish Prisoner

Water for Elephants  The Invention of Hugo Cabret  The Land of Painted Caves

Wishin’ and Hopin’  Sarah’s Key  War Horse

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children  To Wed a Wild Lord  The Night Circus

Once Upon a Winter’s Eve

These are the books I consider to fall under the large umbrella of the historical fiction genre. Thirteen books out of 150. That's one more last week and a far cry from the impressive genre presence of twenty in the top 150 eight weeks ago. Diana Gabaldon comes roaring back onto the list with her newest, and a couple of movie tie-in children's books made the list this week. By the way, Dare's romance is a digital novella, and it's on the list for the second week in a row. 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!
