The Confessions of Catherine de Medici
I LOVE that title Christopher. I didn't know that's what it was going to be called.

And yes, everything seems to be "Queen" now! Or Daughter, unfortunately for my next novel, Cleopatra's Daughter! I chose the titles years ago, and perhaps there was something in the air, because by the time publication rolled around, everything was Daughter or Queen. Even the people working with me on the books were confusing them (The Heretic Queen with The Heretic's Daughter, for example).

In another of those lady/queen/daughter titles... Nancy Goldstone's The Lady Queen will be out in November - nonfiction biography of Joanna I, Queen of Naples, Jerusalem, and Sicily. More details here.

I've read a little about her recently in "The Bad Popes" (nf). She sounded fascinating.

"The Bad Popes"
Now there's a great title! Sounds like a delicious book, even if it is NF.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

I found it very interesting, even though it's not as salacious as "The Sex Lives of the Popes" by Nigel Cawthorne.

If you wrote it about Elizabeth Tudor from the viewpoint of Mary I (and it'd fit, wouldn't it?) then you'd really have covered all the bases. Gotta get those Tudors in there :)

Oh! Now, there's a title: "The Headless Queen's Heretic Daughter: A Novel of Elizabeth I."

We should write it like you used to do in high-school during a really boring class: round-robin style. I bet we'd make a fortune.
