First, I want to congratulate Alianore and Lady D on their new Edward II website! It looks great, and is chock-full of information. Stop on by and soak up the Edward II knowledge it contains.
Second, I’ve put a couple of new letters in the In Their Own Words section of my own website, these from Richard III and Henry VII to their respective mothers. I have to say I think Henry’s letter is the more personal and friendly, but take a look and see what you think. (EDIT: After reading a Yahoo posting which claimed that Elizabeth Woodville was one of 16 Woodville siblings who lived to adulthood–when in fact there were only 12, including Elizabeth, who lived to adulthood–I also added my article on the lesser-known Woodville siblings to my website. From what orifice are people pulling this nonsense about the Woodvilles?)
Third, Michele over at Reader’s Respite is giving away a copy of Hugh and Bess. Her only condition is that entrants must agree to read The Traitor’s Wife, which of course suits me just fine. So as a bonus, I’ll send the winner of her giveaway a copy of The Traitor’s Wife! And I’m giving away a second copy of The Traitor’s Wife to anyone who comments here before November 1. (Except for the person who keeps attempting to post spam in Japanese on this blog. Dude, give it up. That’s why I moderate comments.)
