Search Terms and a Little Back-Patting

Hi! I’m working on a substantive post, so stay tuned for it, but in the meantime, I thought I’d post some search terms. I also wanted to mention that my new novel, Her Highness, the Traitor, will be published on June 1 and that I’ll be doing a blog tour. I’ll post the schedule here.

I was also thrilled to see the results of this survey of historical fiction readers. I’m in some august company!

Without further ado, here are some search terms for you:

anne boleyn barbie doll

Mattel tried to make a prototype, but the sixth finger kept breaking off, and the neck knob was too small.

profiles and cecily woodville telephone number

Silly, everyone knows that the Woodvilles had unlisted telephone numbers.

what group might henry vii be apart of on facebook ?

Henry VII didn’t have much use for Facebook. He preferred Twitter.

was queen elizabeth nice to margaret beaufort

No. She wouldn’t let her “friend” her on Facebook.

margaret of anjou what was she scared of

Menopause.

corpse of unsuitable friend

Mother always told me to choose my corpses wisely.

how was the medieval divorce

OK. Could have used a little more litigation.

pictures of jane shore

Rumor has it that these were found underneath Richard III’s mattress following the Battle of Bosworth.

history of Robitussin

If that’s not a blockbuster in the making, I don’t know what is.

    LOL! Some of these are weird! There is a picture of Jane Shore chastising herself, I believe.

      I don’t know of any contemporary depictions of Jane’s penance (which isn’t to say that there aren’t any), but I have some old paperbacks with the scene on it. They’re quite salacious!

    Hello Susan, many thanks for the ping back on my survey. With participants listing such a very large number of favourites authors, it is truly an outstanding achievement to be in the top list. Congratulations! If you have any suggestions for further analysis please let me know. My next topic is ‘She says, He says” which looks at male/female differences.

    Yeah, the toy sword probably would have been a choking hazard.
