October Release--Elizabeth I
I have another release next Tuesday, Oct. 2--The Queen's Handmaiden, a novel of Elizabeth I. This is historical fiction (with some romance) under my Jennifer Ashley handle. The cover is lovely.
Interestingly, the new Cait Blanchett Elizabeth I movie is releasing October 12. I had no idea the two would be out in the same month!
The book takes Elizabeth from the death of her father, Henry VIII, through the reigns of Edward and Mary, to the death of Elizabeth's governess, Kat Ashley, in 1565.
I wrote this with the idea that people who knew very little of Elizabeth's early life (which is usually not gone into in much depth) could come away with a portrait of Elizabeth as princess and her first challenges as queen.
