Middleham Castle – author visit confirmed! 29-30th August

After a long spring and summer of cancelled events and festivals, you can perhaps imagine how happy I am to announce that on August Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th August) I will be at Middleham Castle in Wensleydale on an author visit.

From 10 am on both days, I’ll be reading from my own and other authors’ stories around the castle, which of course was the primary home of King Richard III and where my The Order of the White Boar‘ is largely set.

I’ll also of course be selling (and signing where appropriate) my books, myBook.to/WhiteBoar & mybook.to/TheKingsMan, the two Richard III-inspired charity anthologies, mybook.to/GrantMetheCarving & mybook.to/RightTrusty, and books by other Ricardian authors, including J.P. Reedman and Marla Skidmore.

Everything will be appropriately socially distanced and Covid-secure, of course.
So if you’re anywhere near Middleham that weekend, or fancy a visit to the area, do come along and say hello. It will be lovely to see you after all this time!


NB. Entry to the castle must be booked in advance (even if you’re an English Heritage member), but I’ll be setting up outside the main entrance, and maybe doing a reading or two from the gateway or even the moat!
