Writing a historical fiction novel can be daunting, especially when it is a religious historical fiction novel. Readers of this genre tend to be very tuned in to the era and can easily spot errors or inaccuracies. Author Jeanne Lyet Gassman approached the research for her award-winning religious historical fiction novel Blood of a Stone by reading both fiction and nonfiction books about the era. She started a library of facts and information relying heavily on published work and less on internet searches.
