PRLog (Press Release) – Mar 05, 2011 – Kris Tualla, award winning author of the Hansen series of historical romance novels, has announced her March 2011 schedule of events.
In the historical romance genre, Scotland has always held the upper hand in regards to popular story lines. For many years, novels featuring Scottish themes have been devoured by the reading public. One writer, Kris Tualla, feels that this popular theme has been overwritten and is offering something new, fresh and exciting to the loyal readers of historical romance.
"In the historical romance genre," stated Tualla, "there have been literally countless kilted warrior stories. I believe it's time for a new breed of heroes. I ask readers to come along with me and find out why Norway IS the new Scotland."
All of the primary characters in Tualla's books are members of the fictional Hansen family of Arendal, Norway. The trilogy begins in the Missouri Territory, moves to Norway, and then back again to Missouri after it has attained statehood. The saga of the Hansen family often features older characters and rich story lines.
"When I fall in love with a book's characters," Tualla continued, "I hate for that book to end. So I chose to write a series of books where all the heroes (and one heroine) are members of the same fictional family - the Hansens of Arendal, Norway. Different generations, different continents, but sharing the strength of their Viking ancestors."
Kris Tualla is walking both the traditional path, and the independent print and ebook paths. She will speak about the four publishing choices all authors face today: what each of those paths offers, what they require, and how to know what is best for any writer's career.
