As I’m sure most of you have already noticed (especially if you’re on the Facebook page), I’m travelling! As I sit here typing this, I’m leaving the beautiful city of Edinburgh, for the highlands! I’ve been so busy the last little while, I feel like I’ve neglecting the posts I should be posting, so to make up for it, I’m going to work on the blogs in preparation for submissions I received for the anniversary of Anne Boleyns’ death (as well as The Spanish Princess series!) Anniversary of Anne Boleyn series For the anniversary of Anne Boleyns death (can you believe it’s been so long?! It feels like it was just yesterday!), Im going to sharing submissions from you wonderful people over a span of 3 days, starting tomorrow (18th) until the 20th (Sunday). Should any of you other readers get inspired and want to write something SEND IT IN! I’m more than happy to share what you’ve written after
Today’s admin post is not Tudor related, but its something that hits home for me, and I suspect far to many people who may read this. But that is exactly why I’m writing it. Five years ago, on November 11th, 2013, my father died from cancer. Although he lived four hours away from me, I was fortunate enough to get home to be with him. Prior to his passing, he spent months in my city getting his radiation treatments, even driving the four hours back home on the weekends despite the doctors telling him they believed he would likely be admitted to the hospital with a feeding tube due to the weight loss expected from the treatments towards (he was already very thin). He wasn’t admitted. He didn’t get a feeding tube. My dad finished his treatments, and got to go home. He was in the hospital afterwards, for other reasons, but always got day passes and was able to
Just thought I would write a little update on how things have been going lately. First off, I’m happy to announce that Queen Elizabeth I won Tudor Madness! If you’re new and wondering, “what the hell is Tudor Madness?” It’s a fun competition I had on the Facebook page, where popular vote would advance an individual to the next round of voting. The final ended with mother vs daughter, and daughter won! I had a lot of fun doing this, and am definitely going to do it again! I have 32 more people lined up, I just need to sit down and create the graphic! Secondly, I started group writes! The first one was a lot of fun, and you may have read the results. If not, definitely check it out, by clicking here! These will be posted on Saturdays!
Since things have been blowing up a little bit over on the ATWC Facebook page, I figure I should make a quick admin post to update everyone on whats been happening! First, I surpassed 1100 likes (as of the day I’m writing this) on the page! Needless to say, I’m so grateful to everyone who took the half a second to hit that like button. Even if it is for the memes, I’ve been having so much fun! Because I hit that milestone, I’ve opened up another contest! If you haven’t heard about it, and are even mildly interested…. Secondly, I created Tudor Madness, which pits (almost) everyone related to the Tudor era in a head to head voting competition. It’s been so fun seeing who everyone chooses and the conversations it sparks! I can’t wait to see who the final winner will be at the end of it! Once again, thanks to all you who have been taking time
Hello, all! So recently I held my first writing contest (congrats again to Tiara Schrombeck), however going into it I assumed that I could just send the ebook as a gift from Amazon. Well! As it turns out, I can’t do that, due to living in Canada and whatnot (:eyeroll:). Thats not to say that Tiara didn’t get her prize, I simply sent a giftcard for her to buy the intended book. So, because I would like to hold more contests in the future and gift books to help all of those authors I love, I’m stuck if I can’t gift ebooks! I could keep sending giftcards, but that doesn’t mean it will go to support the author, if that makes sense! What I’m thinking is, if I approach the author directly and ask if they would send a copy to the winner, I would obviously compensate them buy purchasing it. Now, authors, my question to you – would you be
