We are glad to have you with us as we blog our way to the release of Susan’s forthcoming book, The Creation of Anne Boleyn! This site was born out of the Facebook group dedicated to the book, which can be found at http://www.facebook.com/thecreationofanneboleyn.
You might find it a little odd that so many posts are archived in June (and particularly on June 27!). The reason for this is that all of the “notes” posted on Facebook were moved to this easy to search blog. You can search by one of several methods:
1.) If you would like to read former posts in the order that they were posted, hit the “Archive” menu on the side bar. All of our posts are organized by the month and day that each post was released.
2.) If you are interested in a particular topic, please see the “Categories” menu on the side bar. Here, you have several options to choose from. The following is a guide to help you sort out the contents of each category:
Anne Through the Ages: Posts on how Anne has been viewed through the centuries, from Chapuys, to the Victorians, to the modern era
Book Excerpts: Excerpts from Susan’s book, The Creation of Anne Boleyn
Interviews with Michael Hirst, Natalie Dormer, and other Modern Personalities: Portions of interviews from Susan’s forthcoming book, The Creation of Anne Boleyn. Includes interviews with Michael Hirst, Natalie Dormer, Genevieve Bujold, and Joanna Carrick
Life in 16th Century England: Covers a wide range of topics about the 16th century, including habits and ideas about beauty
May 19th, 1536 Feature: A series of posts dedicated to the month before Anne’s execution
The Other Boleyn Girl Fact-Checker: A post on the material found within Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl
3.) Use the “Our Most Popular Topics” feature. Each of the descriptors listed is a popular tag for our blog posts. Want to read only posts relating to Natalie Dormer? Click on “Natalie Dormer” in the tag cloud.
