Good morning! I wanted to start out by mentioning that Leanda de Lisle’s excellent nonfiction book, Tudor: Passion. Manipulation. Murder. The Story of England’s Most Notorious Royal Family is now on sale, both here in the United States and in the UK (under the title Tudor: The Family Story). I was fortunate enough to read it a couple of weeks ago, and I found it to be excellent. It was particularly nice to see attention paid to the often-neglected early Tudors: Owen, his sons, and his grandson Henry VII.
I also wanted to mention (naturally) that my first nonfiction book, The Woodvilles, published by The History Press, is now available on Kindle (and in other electronic formats as well). The hardback book will be published in the UK shortly (January in the US). In honor of the occasion, I’ll be doing some guest blog posts this month. My first stop is at the Lady Jane Grey Reference Guide, where I have a post about Thomas Grey, Marquis of Dorset, Elizabeth Woodville’s eldest son by her first marriage. On Thursday, I’ll be stopping by Queen Anne Boleyn Historical Writers with a post about Anthony Woodville. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for the info! I’ll look forward to reading both! Hope you are doing well. I’m slowly adjusting to life at the beach–the weather here is wonderful! Hope to see you again…maybe next time I get up your way?
Thanks, Anne! I could adjust to life at the beach! I’d love to see you next time you’re in the area!
Hi Susan, have almost finished Leanda de Lisle’s book, which even though I knew most of it before, is very readable and enjoyable. I received an e-mail about your book at the weekend – saying there was a slight delay! btw, I visited Westminster Abbey recently, and paid my respects at the tomb of the Duchess of Somerset.
“Hope to see you there!” Well, to some extent, your wish is my command! The subject interests me, and I like to read your blogs. Still haven’t read any of your books. My bad! So much to read, and 15th and 16th century England may be my passion, Dutch history is what my employer pays me for! LoL
I recently found your website and have spent the past few days going through the archives which are very interesting – and funny (I’ve been cracking up at some of the search keywords that you’ve had on the site!).
Anyway, I decided to buy “The Stolen Crown”, which I received today and am very eager to begin reading!
What’s de Lisle’s take on the Princes in the Tower? This sounds like the sort of book I’d like, but the book’s official description, which claims that the book shows “why the Princes had to vanish”, make it sound like de Lisle thinks it was Henry VII who did away with them, or that Lambert Simnel and Perkin Warbeck were the Princes, which are not stances I agree with.
No, those aren’t her stances. But she’ll be guest posting here, so perhaps you can ask her personally.
