    Hallelujah! This is really a SUPERB magazine!! Normally I would buy BBC History magazines and search for pieces of Tudor history. That’s all in the past now, because I have all I need in one magazine. Soooo glad to be a member!!

    Claire, the magazine is just wonderful! I read every article and everything was just so interesting. I’m so glad you centered on Elizabeth. She’s always been my favorite Tudor. Can’t wait for next month already!! Well done!!!

    Hi Claire
    I am so excited about this site and I am very much looking forward to being a part of it. Will there be an actual magazine or just an online one? If it is only online, can you tell me how to get it on my Kindle? Thank you in advance and by the way, I loved your books!

      Hi Heather,
      I think Tim’s emailed you about this. He needs to know which version of kindle you have to be able to help you. With my Kindle Fire I can read the magazine with the Silk browser or with my old kindle I can transfer the PDF of the magazine from my computer onto my Kindle using the USB lead.

    For some reason I can’t open the magazines. When I try to open them in PDF I get a message “Unable to topen the internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.” Do you think that Tim has any suggestions?
