‘Grant Me the Carving of My Name’ – a #RichardIII anthology – cover reveal

I’m delighted to announce that we now have a full cover for the upcoming anthology of short stories inspired by King Richard III, Grant Me the Carving of My Name, which will be sold in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK). The ebook will also shortly be available for pre-order – watch this space! (The paperback will also be available from 2nd December – if not before…)

The cover has been designed by Dan Rendell using the image of King Richard kindly supplied by Riikka Katajisto. I’d like to send Dan huge thanks for the time and effort spent on the cover – it really is much appreciated.

Final cover Grant me...

The book will be available in both ebook and paperback, for which the blurb is as follows:

‘A boyhood mishap in York. A ghostly walking tour of Leicester. A deadly snowstorm on the moors above Middleham. Alien abduction in the very heart of the city of London. Loss of a beloved brother, death of an untrue cousin.

Just some of the events recounted in these tales inspired by King Richard III.

Elegiac, mystical, brutal, light-hearted, uplifting. Will you find your favourite Ricardian author within the pages of this anthology?

Sold in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK) with a Foreword by Philippa Gregory (The White Queen) and edited by Alex Marchant

With contributions from Narrelle M. Harris, Wendy Johnson, Susan Lamb, Joanne R. Larner, Matthew Lewis, Máire Martello, Frances Quinn, J. P. Reedman, Marla Skidmore, Richard Unwin and Jennifer C. Wilson. Cover illustration by Riikka Katajisto.’

Sounds like the ideal Christmas present, doesn’t it?
