Henry’s letter of love and adoration (Photo Credit: “Die Liebesbriefe Henrichs VIII” by Theo Stemmler; Belser Verlag Zurich, Publisher)

Sandra Vasoli, author of three books published by MadeGlobal about Anne Boleyn – novels Struck with the Dart of Love, Truth Endures, and non-fiction Anne Boleyn’s Letter from the Tower has done it again with a wonderful article on QueenAnneBoleyn.com.

The article, entitled “Anne Boleyn: A Woman In Love”, recounts how Sandra Vasoli went to visit the Vatican archives to see the letters that Henry VIII wrote to Anne Boleyn while he was courting her love. That the letters still exist is an amazing fact! Sandra has her own, very convincing, argument about the order of these letters, and she says that seeing them in real life was amazing for her because they really showed the passion and feelings that Henry had for Anne.

Thank you, Sandra, for your own passion on this subject, and also to Beth von Staats, owner of QueenAnneBoleyn.com for supporting so many historians and authors.

History Fans … 1066 & The Battle of Hastings is OUT NOW!


The book is available on Kindle as an e-book, and also as a handy paperback which will be the perfect addition to anyone growing their collection of “MadeGlobal’s History in a Nutshell” books.

In 1066 & The Battle of Hastings in a Nutshell, Charlie Fenton discusses one of the most important events in English history.

Many recall the story of William the Conqueror sailing over from Normandy, going to battle with King Harold and the latter supposedly dying of an arrow to the eye. However, few know the details of why the battle happened and how Harold really lost his life, and even fewer know what happened afterwards, during the early reign of William the Conqueror.

GET 1066 & The Battle of Hastings

Tomorrow is the day that our wonderful new book, 1066 & The Battle of Hastings, comes out. It’s available for pre-order so that you can get it as soon as it is released.

Charlie Fenton is a regular on the Tudor Society, and is currently studying history at university. She’s brought together the important strands of history which brought such a change to the English people, in language, customs and the buildings used, in the momentous year of 1066. Clearly presented, this is a wonderful book. And, regardless of what you think you know about the events of this year, you’re bound to learn something new about English history.

Sandra Vasoli

Sandra Vasoli is the author of “Anne Boleyn’s Letter from the Tower”, a fascinating look into the provenance of a letter which has survived five hundred years. A letter which, if authentic, was the record of words spoken by Anne Boleyn to her husband Henry VIII shortly before she was executed. Gripping stuff… reality is far more interesting than fiction sometimes.

However, there is more! On the letter, there is a postscript which was added just before the letter was sent on its way. Sandra Vasoli is over at TheAnneBoleynFiles today with an article about what the letter says…

Read Sandra Vasoli’s article here: https://www.theanneboleynfiles.com/lady-tower-intriguing-postscript/

There is a burned fragment of a letter dated 6 May 1536, signed “Anne Boleyn”, a letter in which the writer fervently proclaims her innocence to her husband, King Henry VIII.

This letter “from the Lady in the Tower” has divided historians, with some dismissing it as a fake. There has been no definitive study of the letter or its mysterious provenance… until now…

In Anne Boleyn’s Letter from the Tower, historian and author Sandra Vasoli provides an in-depth investigation of the letter. This is a phenomenal work which looks into the provenance of this precious letter over the centuries, individuals who may well have kept the letter safe for nearly 500 years, from author to its present home in the British Library. And the author of the letter… well…

Want to get deep into the mind and motivation behind the writer of a great YA novel? Why not head over to AimeeRaindropWrites.co.uk to see what Tamasine Loves thinks…

The article is a very deep interview, and in it, Tamasine says, “When I wrote Remhurst Manor, I just wanted to contribute to the patchwork tapestry of YA books that I adore, that, as I grew up, kept me warm, fascinated, informed, provoked, and continue to guide me today. I wanted to give back. However, as I wrote, I also wanted to include something I’d not yet encountered in my reading. I think that Remhurst Manor shows a different side of growing up in Australia than offered elsewhere, so far, in YA.” That is very much like Tamasine’s motivation … she writes about the things she has seen, read and experienced. It helps to make this a great book.
