2,500 Books Have Been Sold

We have now sold 2,500 copies 
of The Children's Book of Richard III. 

Not only that, but we have now gone into paperback. It's all very exciting.

The book is selling steadily at the Richard III Visitors' Centre, the Bosworth Battlefield Shop and at the various Leicester Museum Shops. If you don't have access to one of those outlets and you'd like to buy a copy - they make excellent presents - you can email the publisher, Lynn Moore at lynn.moore@thereadingshop.co.uk or you can email me at rosalind.kathryn@gmail.com.

I don't usually drink champagne but as this is a special occasion - and as it's a virtual bottle of champagne anyway - I shall raise a glass and drink a toast.

Here's to the next 2,500 copies...

An MA Update: I have just submitted my final assignment and now only have the dissertation to write. The final deadline is September so I'm working hard at it. Did I mention that I'm writing a stage play for my dissertation? I've never written one of those before... why make life easy when it can be this hard?!


  1. congrats on 2500. That's excellent. And good luck on that stage play. (Do I say "break a leg" yet?) Cheers, indeed

  2. well done on both counts! Can't wait for Avalyn to be old enough to read her signed copy!

  3. Well done on your 2500 sales and here's to the next 2500.

  4. How thrilling. I shall forward the email to my family in UK. My daughter has her MA in creative writing. Good luck to you.

  5. Hi Ros ... couldn't agree more - so many congratulations - it's probably breakfast coffee for you ... but I'll toast my glass of vino to you ... excellent news - and well done ... cheers Hilary

    ɑ sеa shell and gɑve it tⲟ my 4 ʏear old daughter ɑnd ѕaid "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." Ѕhe placeԁ tһe shell to һer ear and
    screamed. Ꭲhere was a hermit crab іnside and it pinched һeг ear.
