TudorCon 2019 – Review

This time last week, I was in Manheim, Pennsylvania on a trip almost everyone I told thought was the most nerdy thing I’ve done in my 29 years. They weren’t wrong.

I spent the evening having some drinks, mingling, and watching entertainment I never thought I would. It honestly surpassed everything I expected, and this was just the first day. I had two full days left to experience something I never thought I would.

The next two days would be filled with talks by historians, authors, and people I hoped one day I would meet. I learned so much, not only about things related to the Tudors, but about myself. I realized just how much I truly loved the Tudor era. Because of this event, I have a renewed motivation for this website.

Heather put in a lot of work into this event, and it showed. Nothing was half-assed. Everything from the entertainment, to the food, to the swag bags was perfect. I barely witnessed her sitting down, and if she did, she was still working. Her work ethic is second to none.

If you’re considering going next year, DO IT. I cannot stress this enough. I bought my ticket on a whim, and worked my ass off to make sure I went. My boyfriend and I drove 17 hours, and I would do it again. Although, for Patricks sake, I’ll probably fly next time.

I'm a lover of all things Tudor, and historical - fiction or fact. My aim is to bring together writers of all calibers to share their work with like minded people!
