TudorCon 2019

Well! If you follow the Englandcast Renaissance History Podcast or are apart of the Tudor History Summit page on Facebook, you would have heard talk of a TudorCon during the Pennsylvania Renaissance Fair. Well its happening! October 18-21st 2019! And guess what else? I’m actually going! I bought my ticket yesterday, and am going to start planning soon! I have a big trip across the pond to Scotland in May, so I want to have a jump on things. I’m so excited to meet anyone and everyone who is going. Hopefully I’ll meet people who read this blog – I honestly may cry. I’ve added a countdown clock on the home page, because, why not?! Are you going? Do you want to go? Early bird tickets are on sale right now, CLICK HERE Yours, Melissa …

Domains, and Contests [Admin]

Hello, hello! I should begin by telling new readers to the website, that when there is a post on a Wednesday, it is admin! So I will talk news, give updates, etc! First, I like to officially announce that I purchased a .com domain! You can now view the website from! This was one of the things that I really wanted to do most for this website, and I’m so happy I did it! I believe that putting money into this is something that will motivate me to keep it up! Secondly, I have made a couple posts about contests in the new year. The only idea I have right now is writing contests, with a book as a prize. I’m hoping by the new year, we’ll have enough traffic to do this! If you would be interested in a writing contest, or would be willing to donate a book (looking at you, authors ;)) please, let me know

Hello, everyone! It’s been a little bit, hasn’t it? I’m so sorry it’s been so long, life just got so busy. I got a second job, and between my social life, moving, etc. something had to be placed on the back burner, and unfortunately, it was ATWC. However, I’m back and I am super excited! I’m going to take this week to get myself back on my feet with this site, contacting authors, etc. and then I’m going to make the first post on November 5th! Mark it on your calendar! I will keep the same format as before, Mondays, Fridays, and Wednesdays for admin posts. I look forward to receiving and reading the content you send me! Yours, Melissa  

Weekly Author Feature

When I opened up Jim Hawkey’s submission, and saw the length – 5300+ words! I was a little bit stuck on what I would do. Was that too big? Would people want to sit and read that long of a blog post? Then light bulb! Why not divide it into two posts? I guarantee a post is filled, and I get to make sure the entire submission is posted! Then it hit me – why not use this to my advantage? I’ve decided that, should any authors want to submit a chapter of a novel, I would dedicate the week to them! That being said, this is not limited to just authors. Anyone who wants to submit a large 5000+ word post will have the week. However, with that being said, should you submit a posting that large, I cannot guarantee that your submission will be posted the following week. It is first come, first serve, but with that size,
