Thy Kingdom Come

For anyone who may be interested, I am currently writing an alternate history novel. It’s called ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ pretty much officially now…

It’s based on the idea of a female-dominated monarchy contrasting to the real historical world of women being owned, Henry VIII’s quest for a son etc. I suppose I had no real aims with this book except to amuse myself and to give myself a ‘what if..?’ to think about and play around with. And eventually, a plot formed.

It follows a family in the royal-circle in the 16th Century, especially focusing on one girl, who through a series of events in the Monarchy finds herself heiress to the throne. The book follows her life from the age of seven to when she takes the throne. There is also quite a twist taken from the absolute authority and power stressed at the start of the novel with a Charles I-like situation that originated completely out of scandal, murder and a little help from a character who I losely base on Jane Boleyn at that particular stage of the book.

I’ve been writing it for about six months now and have really enjoyed it. It’s just over 85000 words now with still quite a considerable amount of plot to write, so I’m hoping it will turn out alright. Hopefully…
