June Giveaway!

I apologize for the lack of giveaways (and activity) on the site. As most of you know, I have been having a lot of behind-the-scenes problems with hosting, etc. and have now moved the Tudor Book Blog to a new domain. To celebrate, I am hosting a new giveaway!

The prizes: A copy of Alison Weir's The Children of Henry VIII AND a $25.00 voucher to the Everything Tudor Store.

Here are the rules:

1) Using random.org, I will choose a name from the comment list on this post. To enter, leave a comment.

2) To increase your chances of winning, share the new domain for The Tudor Book Blog on one of the following:

Blogger (your own blog)

If you share on all three, you will get your name in the virtual "pot" three times.

3) If you become a "Follower" on Blogger, Twitter, or "Like" on Facebook, that will also count towards your entry. If you do any (or all) of these, mention it in the comment.

4) Once you have shared the new address and/or Followed/Liked, leave your comment entering the giveaway with links to where you shared.

You have until midnight on June 30th to enter the giveaway. The winner will be announced on July 1st.

This giveaway is open to EVERYONE!

You have 7 possible ways to get your name into the drawing (simply commenting, sharing, following, and/or liking). Good luck!!!


  1. Hello Elizabeth
    I had first heard you discussing the Tudors with Virginia on the podcast. Now I have come to your site, love the jewelry and really everything about it! I am also a History buff, particularly ancient history and British history.

  2. I'm following you on twitter, and I posted to my facebook page! I am a HUGE Tudor fan, and love this site!

  3. Thank you both for the compliments! I love meeting Tudor fans like myself! And so glad you like Tudor Talk, Derelynn! It has been a blast to do it! We are actually recording a new episode tomorrow! :D

  4. Historical fiction and nonfiction are my all time favorite genres and the Tudors are right at the top of my favorite subjects. Your blog is a great escape for me.

    I am a Facebook and GFC follower (I follow both as Colleen Turner).


  5. I don't blog - but follow and shared on both FB & Twt --just learned of your site within the month - <3 it




  6. I just discovered your page on facebook and I am obsessed with your blog! It's so neat to see that others are as interested, or, dare I say, obsessed, with the Tudors as I am!

  7. Thanks so much all of you! :) I'm so happy people like the blog! It is certainly an escape for me as well! And yes, for me the Tudors are no longer an interest, but an obsession!

  8. Love this site. <3 I adore everyhing Tudor related. I like you on Facebook, as well. =D

    I'm getting married in October, so I have an eye on several pieces of Tudor jewelry in the Everything Tudor store! Would it be weird to wear Anne's execution earrings at my wedding? LOL!
    Thakns for a great blog! : )

  11. Congrays on your upcoming nuptials! :) No, I don't think it's weird to want to wear the execution set to your wedding...:D It is my personal favorite! I wear the necklace all the time!

  12. Hi Elizabeth!

    I've recently been listening to Virginia's Tudor podcast and heard about you and your website there. Great website, I'm so glad I found it. I am so excited to enter this contest, Alison Weir is (so far) my favorite Tudor historian, and I have yet to read the book you are giving away.

  13. I totally love this site. Such great things on here to help fill mind with. Ive been in love with Henry VIII since I was little and have always just loved learning anything and everything I can about him, his family, wives, children and the people around him. Because of my amazing love for this man and his dynasty I got a tudor rose tattoo just last week. Please keep up the great work on here.
