A Plaidy reprintcoming out in September '08. I believe it's about Elizabeth of York and Henry Tudor.

Also a reprintcoming out in November '08 for Rosemary Hawley Jarman's book The King's Grey Mare. This one's about Elizabeth Woodville.

I put in purchase requests for both at the library and it looks like they're going to buy them. Woohoo :)

I am going to hold off on preordering that one for now. It was originally supposed to be out in June of this year, and then it disappeared.

Yeah I noticed that on the forthcoming page, but it popped up in my Recommendations, so maybe this time it's true.

Sigh a book I thought was nonfiction about The Tudors is actually fiction.

I seem to have had this book on pre-order for absolutely ages! I suppose it will eventually arrive.
