Children in Read 2021 – in aid of BBC’s #ChildreninNeed

Some fantastic news!

This year’s Children in Read auction of books for BBC’s #ChildreninNeed only opened yesterday, and it’s already raised more than £5,000!

I’m delighted to say I have two books on offer (in two different categories this year). Why not go to the link and see if you can find them? Or, better still, find lots of books you fancy and place some bids! 🐗🚪

Well done to Paddy Heron and the team & all contributing authors for a fabulous effort as always! 👏👏👏👏👏

Alex Marchant is author of two books telling the story of the real King Richard III for children aged 10+, The Order of the White Boar and The King’s Man, and editor of Grant Me the Carving of My Name and Right Trusty and Well Beloved…, two anthologies of short fiction inspired by the king, sold in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK). 

A third book in the ‘White Boar’ sequence, King in Waiting, is currrently available for pre-order and will be published on 17 September 2021, with the fourth, Sons of York, due out in 2022. Alex has also published a standalone timeslip novel for readers aged 10+, Time out of Time.
