HAPPY NEW YEAR
We wish our readers and authors a happy and successful 2018 and look forward to bringing at least three new projects to print this year.
OUR VISION As you know we are a cooperative and work together to achieve our goals, aiming to publish quality rather than quantity. Projects usually come to us by word of mouth and are often forwarded to follow a more appropriate route for the writer or the manuscript.
GIVING We welcome projects where there is an element of giving and are proud that our authors contribute to various causes with their time and part of their royalties. All projects are different.
NEW OPPORTUNITY We will be looking for at least one new author to join us this year ~ more details shortly, but that person will be quite special.
Another opportunity to meet author Margaret Roberts. She will be signing copies of ‘The Original Warden Pear’ at:
Eventispress author Margaret Roberts talked and signed copies of her book ‘The Original Warden Pear’ at the Warden Abbey Vineyard Open Day on Sunday 10th September 2017.
Brian Kerr also enjoyed success selling copies of ‘An Unassuming County’ at an Eventispress stall which displayed our publications highlighting our work in Bedfordshire.
I’m sure that a great day was had by all, as local producers sold their wares, alongside Warden Abbey Wines. Well done Margaret and Brian!
Here’s a fantastic review for Life is Just by Nigel Lesmoir Gordon.
“This story brilliantly captures the mood of the time – putting the reader ‘front and the centre’ of an innocent time in history that, only now, do we realise was the beginning of a huge cultural change that swept through the Western world. This was such an enjoyable read!
Alex Seymour ~ Author of The Psychedelic Marine.
Many thanks Alex. We think it’s a great book too!
The Original Warden Pear by Margaret Roberts has now been released for sale in the UK on Amazon. All profits for this book will go to The Warden Abbey Vineyard ~ A community wine grower.
About the book:
“Having enjoyed widespread popularity until the late seventeenth century, the warden pear gradually faded into obscurity. The Original Warden Pear uncovers its story, bringing together evidence from monks, horticulturalists, physicians and bookkeepers. Poets, songwriters and playwrights captured the spirit of the pear from the late fourteenth century onwards, while twenty-first century DNA testing has sought to discover whether anything of the old warden pears has survived. The Original Warden Pear will appeal to those interested in horticulture, the arts, theology, Bedfordshire local history and medieval medicine. Recipes are included, so that readers can recreate the sorts of pear dishes enjoyed by the fifteenth-century nobility, or bake one of the famous Warden Pies. All profits from the book will go towards the upkeep of Warden Abbey Vineyard, a Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity project.”
Eventispress have just released author Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon’s gripping new novel

Margaret Roberts came to us at Eventispress because she liked our ‘local’ – face to face approach, where she could be involved and have a say at every level of her projects.
Passionately interested in history, especially local to Bedfordshire, Margaret devotes much of her time to ‘The Warden Abbey Community Vineyard‘ which has produced royal approved sparkling wine!
Her first book, ‘The Original Warden Pear’ which is grown on the Old Warden site, will be released on Amazon.co.uk in early May (more news shortly) and then sold locally.
Profits for the book will go to The Warden Abbey Community Vineyard, which is now run by volunteers. Eventispress is pleased to support local projects such as this.
More information about Margaret and her writing can be found on her page above.
