The first novel in Joanne Larner’s series on King Richard III
FREE on Kindle January 10th ONLY
What if time could be manipulated so that someone could travel into the future? What if that someone were Richard III, King of England, who died at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485? And what if he could learn what happened and go back to fight the battle again…with the benefit of hindsight? This is the story of his quest to do just that while trapped in a modern world in which everything is terrifying and strange.

About the author
Joanne Larner was born in London and moved to Rayleigh in Essex (UK) in 2001. She had wanted to write a novel since the age of thirteen and finally managed it in 2015. She was helped by two things: National Novel Writing Month and Richard III. Richard was her inspiration and she became fascinated by him when she saw the Channel 4 documentary The King in the Car Park in February 2013. She researched his life and times and read countless novels, but became fed up because they all ended the same way – with his death at the Battle of Bosworth. So she decided to write a different type of Richard story and added a time travel element. The rest is (literally) history.
Joanne published her first novel, Richard Liveth Yet, in 2015. She has now completed two sequels, making Richard Liveth Yet a trilogy – a sort of ‘Back to the Future’ with Richard III!Then she was approached by Susan Lamb, another Ricardian author, to collaborate on a humorous collection of anecdotes about Richards’s escapades at his castle of ‘Muddleham’, along with his wife Anne, his son Edward and his friend Lovell, among many others. The book, Dickon’s Diaries, is not to be taken seriously and a taste of the humour in it can be found on their Facebook Page, Dickon for his Dames: https://www.facebook.com/Dickiethird/
More recently one of Joanne’s Ricardian short stories, ‘Repercussions‘, was accepted into an anthology of scary stories,’The Box Under the Bed‘, edited by Dan Alatorre.
