In the latest of my #Lockdown readings, I’ve, perhaps bravely, opted for reading the opening of Book 3 in ‘The Order of the White Boar’ series, provisionally entitled ‘King in Waiting’. The book will tell of the events in the lives of Matthew Wansford and his young friends in the months after the Battle of Bosworth.
It can be found, along with links to previous readings suitable for ages 8 to adult, at:
There’s still a way to go before I finish the book, but I hope this will offer a little taste of what is to come…
And over the next couple of weeks, watch this space for more guest posts!
The first will be a fascinating interview with the authors of the forthcoming collection The Road to Liberation: Trials and Triumphs of WWII – Marion Kummerow, Marina Osipova, Rachel Wesson, JJ Toner, Ellie Midwood, and Chrystyna Lucyk-Berger. Look out for this on the day after the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day, on 9th May!
Then, on 13th May, I’ll be joined by fellow Ricardian author J.P. Reedman, with her long-awaited prequel to I, Richard Plantagenet, entitled The Road from Fotheringhay. The book tells the story of King Richard as a boy through his own eyes. (Yay – now I don’t have to write it!!)
Please join us!
