Hot on the heals of the cover reveal for our forthcoming “Tudor Places of Great Britain” book (see here) we are happy to announce yet another cover reveal. This time it’s for some stunning historical detective work by Sandra Vasoli. She’s been painstakingly researching a mysterious letter from Anne Boleyn which many in the past have discounted.

So, without further ado, here is the cover reveal for “Anne Boleyn’s Letter from the Tower” by Sandra Vasoli. Due for publication before October.



To all our Tudor fans … we’ve just completed the cover design of a forthcoming book compiled by Claire Ridgway (who runs TheAnneBoleynFiles).

The book is entitled “Tudor Places of Great Britain” and is a guide book with regions of Great Britain covered in details, with stunning images and details about the places in our glorious country which the Tudors used or built.


The book is due for publication before October 2015, and we’ve agreed that a digital copy of the book will be given to ALL members of the Tudor Society who are active members on the 1st October 2015.

Hunter S. Jones (real name Deb Hunter), the author of Phoenix Rising, will be in Barnes & Noble, Hamilton Place, Chatanooga, tomorrow afternoon for a book signing event. Everyone is welcome and Hunter will be thrilled to meet you.

There’s a great article about Hunter and why she wrote this book about Anne Boleyn’s execution here:

Deb Hunter, who writes under the name Hunter S. Jones, will be signing her new book, “Phoenix Rising,” on Saturday 15 August 2015 from 2-4 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, Hamilton Place. DON’T MISS IT!
Phoenix Rising, Anne Boleyn
