Philippa Gregory's The Other Boleyn Girl Contest! THIS COMPETITION NOW CLOSED

So I hope you guys remember, there's still a competition going on right here on my site for a lovely edition of Philippa Gregory's The Other Boleyn Girl! That's right! I know you want some Tudor drama, and she's the queen of Tudor historical fiction. I'm also going to a talk she's giving today at the Tivoli Theater in Illinois, so I should have some interesting stories to post when the winner is announced. So get on it and enter, you don't enter you can't win, simple as that! If I hit 100 followers, I'll add a little something special! (Currently that's like two more people, I know you guys have at least two friends, people you know, random strangers on the street who you can entice to follow my blog! So get on that will you!?!)

I am actually a King Henry VIII kind of girl. He made a lot of mistakes in his reign, but he also did wonders for the architecture and the military. He made his mistakes, but he also did some good in his time too.

This is such a terrific contest! There have been so many intriguing British Monarchs that it is hard to choose. I love all of the Tudors in general. Ok well love is the wrong word but am fascinated by them all. I can't help but give kudos to Katherine Parr for outliving Henry VIII.

I have to admit that I've always been fascinated by King Henry VIII (and how he managed to get away with going thru so many unfortunate wives - didn't only 1 or two manage to survive him? I forget lol)
