Those of you on The Anne Boleyn Files list of email subscribers will already know this piece of news, but I wanted to let everyone know – my next book, The Anne Boleyn Collection II, will be released on Amazon (worldwide) next week!
If you’ve noticed that I’ve been a bit quieter than usual – not replying to comments, not being quite as active on Facebook/Twitter etc. – it’s because I’ve been working on the final edits for The Anne Boleyn Collection II. The editing is done, the final layout with illustrations is done and it’s in the process of being uploaded onto Amazon’s system – exciting! I will, of course, post on here when the book is live on Amazon as a paperback and Kindle version.
The first Anne Boleyn Collection was a collection of articles from The Anne Boleyn Files, but The Anne Boleyn Collection II is a bit different. It consists of a few articles from the site, but also includes articles based on talks I’ve done and on my research into Anne and the Boleyn family. It also has illustrations.
The Anne Boleyn Collection II Blurb
Queen Anne Boleyn and her family have gone down in history as ambitious social climbers who stopped at nothing to gain the King’s favour, and who paid the ultimate price. But the real Boleyns were very different. In this collection of articles, best-selling author and creator of The Anne Boleyn Files website, Claire Ridgway, banishes the myths and introduces the real Boleyns. Written in Claire’s easy-going style, but with an emphasis on good history and sound research, these articles are perfect reading for Tudor history lovers everywhere.
