York launch for #RichardIII charity anthology ‘Grant Me the Carving of My Name’

Hot on the heels of my call for submissions to the second anthology of short fiction inspired by King Richard III, Right Trusty and Well Beloved…,  I’m delighted to announce that the first anthology, Grant Me the Carving of My Name, will be officially launched on Saturday 4 May in York, the city King Richard himself called home.


From 2 pm til 3.30 pm, six of the contributors to our anthology – Wendy Johnson, Susan Lamb,  Joanne R. Larner, Marla Skidmore, Jennifer C. Wilson and myself – will be hosting an afternoon of talks, Q&As, readings, and signings (of the anthology and our individual work) at Explore York, the central library in King Richard’s fair city.

Do come along if you can and discover more about the king’s connections with the city, about the man himself, and about what it’s like to write about him and his times. Between the six of us, we cover a variety of genres, from straight historical fiction, to romance, paranormal, time-slip, and of course children’s/young adult.

Everyone is welcome!
