Last March, I broke free of my boring hair color chains and added not only pink, but purple and salmon, as well. It was exhilarating! But wow, so expensive. As it turns out, those cool colors are not so cool on the pocket book, and so now I’m back to boring brown—though I’m contemplating pink/salmon highlights for book release week. P.S. You should totally dye the ends of your hair pink!
Often I do when I write, but in this case, I really tried to draw from history—which is a bit tricky. It’s hard to make Henry a swoony YA boy when the real Henry was a bit spineless, and in the end, turned out to be a cad.
I actually do have a playlist for this book. Here’s the Soundcloud link: https://soundcloud.com/dawnius/sets/anne-henry
I’m asked this question a lot and truthfully, a sequel was never in the cards for me—or I suppose, for Anne or Henry. While I learned a lot about Henry VIII while researching this book, his other wives never really interested me in the same way. Something about Anne Boleyn is different, and it’s perhaps why she’s the most written about. That said, I wouldn’t mind exploring other Tudor-era characters and taking them to a modern setting—Bloody Mary, Queen Elizabeth, etc. But it would have to be the RIGHT story, and nothing has gelled quite yet.
To say I think of this often would be an understatement, and honestly, I constantly change my mind, perhaps knowing if I was ever lucky enough to have ANNE & HENRY optioned for a movie, I’d probably be happy with ANYONE. OK, maybe not ANYONE, but you know what I mean.
Just one? Gasp. I have a handful of favorites but probably The Princess Bride—it covers the most genres, has a swoon-worthy romance, and is one I never get tired of reading.
I’m not passing on this because it’s not a good question, it is! But I’m not even sure what song best sums up my life theme.
