12 Days of Christmas Mega Book Giveaway!

I’m absolutely thrilled to share that I’ll be hosting a Mega Book Giveaway in December.

This fortnight of fun is made possible by the generosity of the following wonderful historians and authors:

Starting on 1 December, I will post details of two giveaways per day, all open internationally! All you need to do to be in the running to win the daily giveaways is leave a comment after each individual post. Winners will be randomly selected and notified by email in early January.

Sound simple? That’s because it is! ‘Tis the season to be jolly after all and I know this will delight any Tudor/history enthusiast.

Some of our wonderful authors have also decided to write a guest post to accompany their giveaway, so there’ll be lots of interesting articles to read as well.

Be sure to visit On the Tudor Trail each day from 1-12 December to take part in the fun! Also, please join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to ensure you don’t miss out any important updates and announcements.

Good luck and Merry Christmas!
