Today is a big day because it is actually the official launch day of The Elizabeth Files, the sister site of The Anne Boleyn Files. I welcome you to the Elizabeth Files and hope that you will enjoy finding out more about Elizabeth I, daughter of my heroine Anne Boleyn.
As I said in an earlier post on here, my fascination with Elizabeth I has grown as I have found out more about her mother. I went from reading just Anne Boleyn biographies to reading Elizabeth I books and she has completely captivated me. There is so much of Anne Boleyn’s wit and intelligence in Elizabeth, and it was good to know that Anne lived on England’s iconic queen.
So, competition time!
When I launched The Anne Boleyn Files, I ran an article competition entitled “Addicted to Anne” where I asked you to write an article of up to 700 words ( 300-700 words or thereabouts – I’m not fussy!) about why you are so addicted with Anne Boleyn, and I thought it would be a good idea to do the same to commemorate the launch of The Elizabeth Files.
Simply write an article entitled “Addicted to Elizabeth I”, telling me why you are so interested in Elizabeth I, and you could win a $20 voucher to spend in either The Elizabeth Files shop or The Anne Boleyn Files shop. Your article will also be published on the site.
The closing date is Friday 11th September so get writing! Email your article to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on 11th September.
