‘Right Trusty and Well Beloved….’ – Philippa Langley MBE to contribute Foreword to #RichardIII anthology

I’ve been rather quiet of late. A combination of family and work-related stuff has meant I’ve not had much time or energy for book-related matters. But I have steadily, if slowly, been working towards the upcoming publication of the second Richard III-inspired anthology, Right Trusty and Well Beloved…

I’m delighted to be making a couple of announcements today about the anthology, which will be published on 1 November. The cover reveal should happen later on (all being well!), but before that I’m thrilled to let you know that the contributor of our Foreword is the incredible Philippa Langley MBE.

Philippa is in many ways responsible for this anthology. If she and her colleagues in the Looking for Richard Project hadn’t dedicated themselves to and been successful in finding King Richard’s grave in 2012, many of the stories and poems in both anthologies might not have been written – nor indeed many other works of fiction and art, my own two books among them.

So it’s special honour for me that Philippa agreed to join us in in both our awareness-raising for King Richard and the condition of scoliosis and in our raising of funds for Scoliosis Association UK.
Thank you Philippa! 😃🐗👑
