I found a bunch of books through Wars of the Roses lists, so I wanted to pay it forward with a list of my own. Lancaster heavy, but includes Plantagenet, York and Tudor stuff. Go here for a York heavy list (and enjoy the spot on sporking of the awful-brilliant The White Queen by the op). Most files in pdf, others in epub (I recommend calibre). For educational
There are bunch of books I couldn’t find electronic versions of but would like to mention anyway: John M. Ford’s The Dragon Waiting, Susan James biography of Katherine Parr, W. L Warren’s biography of King John, and The Fears of Henry IV, another biography, this one by Ian Mortimer, who appears a few times on this list. Find them and read them! They are amazing.

Anonymous asked: I want to hate you, but I can't! I've recently discovered fan fiction and I found your amazing fic The Distance to Where You'd Be. There was a happy ending. Then you had to complicate everyting. Then you stopped updating! Will there be more chapters? Will there be more of Affinity and Stories Told and Untold?
There will be more chapters for Affinity and Stories Told and Untold, but I can’t promise anything about TDWYB : )
Anonymous asked: Hi ages ago you made a post about doing argella/orys with shireen/aegon. Are you still going to write it? It sounded really interesting.
It’s half-written, actually :D The Argella/Orys part is done, but I had some problems with the Shireen/Aegon part (I think because unlike the other three characters, I’ve never written Aegon before). I need to let it sit for a while and figure out how to write Aegon. It won’t be abandoned, I promise!
