The Anne Boleyn Collection II

Cover concept

I just wanted to write this quick post to explain the absence of Anne Boleyn articles recently and to update you on what I’m up to at the moment. I’ve been very busy finishing the manuscript of “The Anne Boleyn Collection II”, which is now in the hands of my editor and is due for publication in the autumn. The photo here is the initial cover concept and I will share the proper cover with you as soon as it is finished, but I can tell you that the book is a collection of articles on Anne and the Boleyns based on research I’ve done over the past four years and talks I’ve done. More soon…

I’ve also been working with Clare Cherry, who some of you will know from her articles on George Boleyn here at The AB Files, on a book on George Boleyn. Clare had already carried out extensive research on George and written a draft manuscript when I met her and we’re now combining our research and knowledge to create a biography of George. We’re hoping to release it early next year.

Life has been rather hectic and my brain is rather fried (turned to mush!), so I’m taking some time off in August to recharge my batteries ready to start sharing more of my thoughts on the Boleyns and the Tudors in September. Don’t worry though, I’ve already written a collection of posts which will be added to the site during August so you will still be able to get your Tudor fix. I appreciate every single one of my visitors and readers, so I’d never leave you in the lurch.

Have a wonderful summer!

P.S. If you usually get articles emailed to you, this won’t happen for most of August because I’m away. Please check the website regularly for posts. Thanks!

    Claire, how splendid. surely a must. my granddaughter is besotted with Elizabeth I and will direct her to the letter written at age 10 years. she is Elizabeth with her colouring and scholastic abilities being able to read before 4 years of age. learnt all about the boleyns and their ancestors as soon as she could read. now 16 years.

    have a lovely summer and to all readers.

    I do hope we get it here in America.I have at times wondered about any modern relatives of Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, . I believe Anne’s father had brothers, and maybe even a sister or two.So it would be interesting to see if the Boleyn family survives.Maybe too,we will learn more about George and his relationship with his wife Jane and her family.

    A well deserved rest Claire, good for you.
    Have a safe journey and a great time on your holiday with your family, and come back all refreshed and raring to go, 🙂
    Will look forward to the release of the A.B.Collection II, and the book you have been working on with Clare Cherry.

    Until your return Claire, Bon-voyage…

    HollyDolly, I have a (rather new) interest in the extended Boleyn Family. Your comment re the modern descendants also intrigues me too. I have read somewhere a couple of years ago that the name could also be spelt, “Bullen”. Certainly the pronunciation is quite similar.

    And that name is familiar to Australians, as I remember from my childhood, one of the travelling Circuses from the 50s (maybe still going?), was Bullen’s Circus. It never occurred to me that there may have been a relationship.
