It has been a long time away — Beds Country File

Eventispress Author Brian Kerr begins writing on his wordpress blog once more and news of his book launch:

The last blog on this site was in mid 2015. David Cameron was the Prime Minister; the word Brexit has seldom in the news; and pandemics were something that happened in the history books.

Exciting News at Eventispress! How to Value a Skylark by Brian Kerr will be released in January 2021

Eventispress are gearing up to a positive 2021 with the news that:

How to Value a Skylark

The Countryside in a Time of Change

Author Brian Kerr asks these key questions as we face a new year and a new beginning for the world. Have we the courage to change things for the better?

“Will the British countryside cope with global warming, new farming methods and increased public access? Can rewilding landscapes and wildlife conservation be balanced against rural livelihoods?”

That just leaves us to wish you a happy and safe Christmas and, if you are like many of us and will not be seeing loved ones until after a vaccination, our hearts go out to you all.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BOOKSHOP

AUTHOR DIANA JACKSON

The Good News is that author Diana Jackson’s latest release MISSING Past and Present ~ Is Life Just a Roll of a Dice?

is now available for order through any good bookshop. We did not wish to advertise it until we were fairly confident that we could deliver to you.

Available on Amazon

Here’s a link to Diana Jackson’s latest newsletter which has details of the ISBN etc and a wonderful on-line review. 

She will be having a new release soon too. More details in the next post.

AUTHOR BRIAN KERR

Both of Brian’s books should be available in local bookshops in Bedfordshire now. If not, then please ask. They, too, can be ordered and your inquiry may prompt the shop to buy some more in.

It is early days though for bookshops.

Brian’s new release is on course for a date before Christmas and covers issues country wide, but none the less pressing environmental issues. A comprehensive study. More details shortly.

Here’s more about Brian and his other two titles:

  1. An Unnssuming County ~                                                                                        The Making of the Bedfordshire Countryside 
  2. A Certain Degree of Magnificence

THE FUTURE

We are in conversation with two new authors at the moment too. Our policy is to help each to find the right path for the author and so we’ll see, but we do like to support authors to follow their dreams.

An Update from Author Brian Kerr

Brian writes:

“I am delighted that Eventispress has seen my recent publication over the line and printing is underway.  Meanwhile this, my second Book, A Certain Degree of Magnificence: People in the Bedfordshire Landscape, is available on Amazon prior to a formal book launch during May at the Higgin Museum, Bedford. (more details shortly)

This date in May will be linked to the Greensand Country Festival which will run throughout May and be packed with a variety of events across the Greensand Ridge and beyond. The Book Launch will be accompanied by a talk by author Brian Kerr as a part of the museum exhibition, From Bunyan to Brickworks, (April-September 2019). This free talk will trace the changes in the countryside of Bedfordshire from the time when John Bunyan walked the land as a tinker, to the transformation of the landscape at the time of commercial brick clay extraction.

More talks are planned for the autumn.

Meanwhile Brian is spending some time in the Netherlands, experiencing life in Europe, learning a little Dutch and helping with grandchildren. More formal work at Cranfield University will resume on return, as will a summer tending an allotment.”

Many thanks for this update Brian. You are a busy man!

Eventispress wishes you well in the launch of your new book.
