I haven’t read any of Vanora Bennett’s books, but going by her website, she seems like a really fascinating woman. Not sure about the monks’ diet though, lol
Better late than never. Mariette, I have read one of Bennett’s book, Blood Royal. About Catherine de Valois. Good book.
Thanks Sharon, I’ll have a look for it.

In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn by Sarah Morris and Natalie Grueninger. I like the look of this one, I can’t wait to see some of the photos
The biography of Chapuys which I am just dying to read. I interviewed the author Lauren Mackay this week and I think it’s going to be awesome
Elizabeth of York by Alison Weir. I think I’ll get this one, I did really like her last book on Mary Boleyn. It should be interesting
Promo for the book:
There are a few other video concerning the theme of the book (palaces etc) here:

Amberley is running a competition over on Facebook if anyone wants to try and win a copy
Natalie and Sarah will be doing a signing at Sudeley Castle next week for their Tudor fun day.
I just heard from Amberley that Lauren Mackay’s book has been pushed back to February, even though the pre-order link still says 43 days (as of today). I don’t know what is going on there.
John Matusiak has finished his Wolsey book! Publication might be around March 2014.
Elizabeth Norton is working on a biography of Elizabeth Boleyn according to her blog. Has anyone read the Boleyn women yet?
Looks like most of the books released until the end of the year are on Richard III. I saw a new one by Josephine Wilkinson on the Princes but I can’t find it again The Woodvilles by Susan Higginbotham is out next month from The History Press, which is excellent.
Amy Licence is working on on Richard III book and a book on Cecily Neville (about damned time.)
Oh did anyone read Tudor by Leanda de Lisle yet? It’s fantastic.

Having succumbing and finally purchasing an iPad last week for an app that would only work on a damn iPad I thought I would experiement with an eBook. I chose Leanda’s new book, mailny because a review I read said it shared some new detail about Jane and Guildford in it and I couldn’t wait until 2014 for the paperback. I have skkimmed through various sections and it seems well written and easy to read, like her book on the Grey Sisters. I admit I felt pretty stoked to read that ‘our Claire’ got a thank you in the book.
I’ve already made note of some pitential ideas to use in my slowly developing play I am creating in my mind, thanks to the book.

I saw a new one by Josephine Wilkinson on the Princes but I can’t find it again
Here it is Olga
It’s disappointing to hear that Lauren Mackay’s Chapuys book won’t be out until February.

Ah thanks Mariette I am still not allowed to read any WOTR books until next year (unless is is for research purposes). Although R3’s birthday is coming up so I might have to cheat again.
How is the Ipad going Bill? I hate reading on mine but my Kobo is useless for PDF’s so I have to use it more often than not. I quite enjoyed reading about David Owen, Owen Tudor’s illegitimate son, I had never heard of him.
