The Balancing Act of Historical Fiction: A Teaching Episode with Amanda Cabot


In 2022, we’re taking a direction change with the podcast and, instead of bringing you 50+ interviews during the year, you’ll get 8-10 full-on teaching episodes. These are sessions you normally could only hear at a writers conference, about an hour long and full of practical advice to improve your writing and advance your career.

Today’s guest teacher is best-selling historical author Amanda Cabot. Amanda explains about the different kinds of historical fiction with tips on how to write them well. Her latest novel, The Spark of Love, just released on March 1 and is available everywhere books are sold including Baker Book House (, where you can find discounted pricing on paperbacks).
