I’m just going to interrupt my countdown to publication of Sons of York to announce that young Alex Goodwin will indeed be joining myself and five other authors (not to mention hundreds of other Ricardians!) at this year’s Middleham Celebrates King Richard III festival.
Thanks to some very generous donations made to our Go Fund Me page, on the weekend of Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July the six authors will be welcoming Alex and his family on their first visit to King Richard’s favourite home – the ‘Windsor of the north’.
Apart from myself, the attending authors will be Toni Mount (‘How to Survive in Medieval England’, the Seb Foxley mysteries), Maryann Benbow (the ‘Soldier’ alternative histories), Bridget Beauchamp (‘Maiden of Middleham’), Joanne Larner (‘Distant Echoes’, ‘Richard Liveth Yet’) and Susan Lamb (co-author with Jo Larner of ‘Dickon’s Diaries’).
And of course, I’m delighted to be launching my Sons of York at the festival. (Ebook available now for pre-order.)
Why not come along and join us if you’re 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, will be published 26 June 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.
