As so often I’ve been a little quiet of late – lots of family and writing matters to attend to.
But I’m taking a little time out from them to let you know all about an exciting upcoming event!
On Saturday 19th November, two of my very favourite Ricardians – Philippa Langley and Matthew Lewis – are giving talks and signing their books at the Yorkshire Museum to raise funds for young Alexander Goodwin’s upcoming surgery in the USA.
You may remember Alex, our special guest at the launch of Sons of York at the Middleham Richard III Festival in July (see blog post ‘A very special guest...’)
If you’re anywhere near York in November, this is certainly an event not to miss!
Full details can be found on this poster:
Not only are Philippa and Matt attending, but also fellow Ricardian historical fiction authors Bridget Beauchamp and Darren Harris, whose debut novels, Maiden of Middleham and The King’s Son, have recently been reissued by Arcanum Press. Arcanum has recently launched a mission to become the premier publisher of Ricardian historical fiction, also signing up Matt Lewis to reissue his novels Loyalty and Honour (with a third book, Faith, soon to follow), so be sure to take a look at their website and sign up for updates!
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.
