With the campaign launch months ahead of the publication of the first Six Tudor Queens novel, we initially used content that introduced readers to the world of the Tudors – in particular the role of queens and women, in general – as well as establishing Alison as an authority on historical fiction and non-fiction who charts the rise and fall of key figures within the British Monarchy.
