I’m excited to announce that this coming Saturday, 23 October, I will be once more visiting the King Richard III Visitor Centre in Leicester, built at the site of the king’s grave and aimed at telling his story.
The Centre, which has stocked the first two Order of the White Boar books since their publication in 2017 and 2018 and was the site of the official launch of The King’s Man, has kindly invited me back to sign copies of King in Waiting (and the other two books) and to read from my books as part of their activities for the half-term school holidays.
I’ll be at the Centre from approx 11 am, so why not come and say hello if you happen to be in the area?
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 a third in the sequence, King in Waiting, which continues the adventures of the young members of the Order in the following years. A fourth book, Sons of York, is due out in 2022.
Alex is also editor of Grant Me the Carving of My Name and Right Trusty and Well Beloved…, two anthologies of short fiction inspired by King Richard, sold in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK).
Alex has also published a standalone timeslip novel for readers aged 10+, Time out of Time, relating the adventures of Allie Turner through a doorway into history found under layers of old wallpaper at ancient Priory Farm.
