Announcing HFRT Grand Event: Pale Rose of England by Sandra Worth


Historical Fiction Round Table is proud to announce our grand event for February. The all time fabulous author Sandra Worth and in fact her new release "Pale Rose of England" just hit stores as of today. I want to tell you all everything about this novel but I will have to hold myself back but what I can say so far is this is a MUST READ HF for 2011. For more on the event check out the HFRT main sites and schedule of events.

"From the award-winning author of The King's Daughter comes a story of love and defiance during the War of the Roses.


It is 1497. The news of the survival of Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York, has set royal houses ablaze with intrigue and rocked the fledgling Tudor dynasty. With the support of Scotland's King James IV, Richard-known to most of England as Perkin Warbeck-has come to reclaim his rightful crown from Henry Tudor. Stepping finally onto English soil, Lady Catherine Gordon has no doubt that her husband will succeed in his quest.


But rather than assuming the throne, Catherine would soon be prisoner of King Henry VII, and her beloved husband would be stamped as an imposter. With Richard facing execution for treason, Catherine, alone in the glittering but deadly Tudor Court, must find the courage to spurn a cruel monarch, shape her own destiny, and win the admiration of a nation.

 

About the Author: Sandra Worth is the acclaimed author of five historical novels chronicling the demise of the Plantagenet dynasty in England. Each is the recipient of multiple awards that include three coveted Reviewers Choice Awards and a "Best Books" 2009 national pick from USA Booknews.com. She lives in Texas.

Pricilla, I love it love it love it really love it.

S.L., I agree by far the only other one that was in the same league was C.W. Gortner on The Last Queen.

Svea, he is so so so yummy I know I even have it bookmarked on my blackberry.

Lizzy, you're right, the trailer for The Last Queen is quite good. Making a trailer like a mini-documentary is a risky marketing move, but I think it pays off with that one--after all, people who love historical novels also usually love documentaries. I read somewhere that for something like $7500 you can get your book trailer put up on the History Channel website. Oh, what I wouldn't give for the budget to do that...

S.L. ha you so know HF lovers and your quiet right they do tend to love documentaries too. Ouch that is a lot of coin to host a book trailer. No kidding we can all dream of huge budgets.
