As you may have already seen, MadeGlobal Publishing is commemorating the 480th anniversary of Queen Anne Boleyn’s execution with a special programme of video talks given by some of your favourite authors and bloggers, including yours truly (yes, me!). There will also be a charity auction of an Anne Boleyn portrait and lots of giveaways too.
I will be sharing the videos as they are released here on the Anne Boleyn Files and also on The Anne Boleyn Files Facebook page, but the main place for all the goodies is https://www.madeglobal.com/ and the MadeGlobal Facebook page. You can also subscribe to the MadeGlobal YouTube Channel to catch the videos as they go live.
Here is the main programme, but there will also be giveaways. The times given are BST (British Summer Time) and the easiest way of finding out how that compares to your time zone is to simply Google “what is the time now in London?”.
