‘Grant Me the Carving of My Name’ – full line-up of authors for #RichardIII anthology

I’ve now received all the short stories that will be included in the upcoming Ricardian anthology Grant Me the Carving of My Name, to be sold in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK). And I have to say I’ve enjoyed reading them enormously and am excited at the prospect of sharing them with you.

But of course I can’t do that until publication day – Sunday 2nd December.

But to whet your appetite in the meantime, I’m delighted to let you know the full line-up of authors who have very kindly donated their work for this worthwhile cause – a charity that I’m sure would have been close to King Richard’s heart had he been alive to witness their fantastic work with people with scoliosis and their families.

I suspect everyone reading this will spot a favourite author or two amongst this list of creative people inspired by King Richard – and I hope that you will all find another favourite author or two (or more!) once you’re introduced to them. Most names will have a link in case you’d like to find out more about them and their work before launch day.

In strictly alphabetical order (of course), these generous people are:

Narrelle M. Harris

Wendy Johnson

Riikka Katajisto (who has generously donated the cover image)

Susan Kokomo Lamb (one-half of Larner & Lamb!)

Joanne R. Larner (the other half of Larner & Lamb!)

Matthew Lewis

Máire Martello

Frances Quinn

J. P. Reedman

Marla Skidmore

Richard Unwin

Jennifer C. Wilson

And I’m currently keeping my fingers crossed that in a few days I’ll be able to announce another special guest contribution …
