Nigel has recently been in touch with his exciting news. He writes:
“I took part in the successful launches of two books in London late last year:
Clouds Are Not Spheres – My portrait of Benoît Mandelbrot, the founding father of Fractal Geometry.
My biography Behind Open Doors by Ingrid Maclean.
We are holding a second launch party to celebrate the publication of Behind Open Doors at Helgi’s Bar in Hackney at 6.00pm on Friday 22nd February. I will be hosting this event.
I continue to work on a film called The Interactions Avenue. I am the producer, director and presenter of this TV documentary on the latest finding in Quantum Mechanics.
Bewley Books are publishing two new novels I’ve written under the banner Karma Lawyer. The first is called Courage and Love, which will come out in the Spring. Its sequel When the Knitting Had to Stop will be released in the Autumn.
My production company Fractal Fun Ltd aspires to produce a documentary based on Behind Open Doors during the course of 2019.”
Hey Nigel, what a busy person you are. Good luck with all of your ventures.
Here are Nigel’s books with Eventispress. Click on book cover for more details:
“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.
Although not with Eventispress we would like to congratulate Nigel Lesmoir Gordon on the launch of his memoir ‘Behind Open Doors’
This is Nigel’s email to us:
“The launch went swimmingly, Diana. We had a full house, which included Rupert Sheldrake, Anthony Stern, David Cammell, my brother and his wife and Mike Horovitz. Also many other old Cambridge friends and some new ones.
A jolly fine time was had by all and the books flew off the table.”
Author Nigel Lesmoir Gordon is launching his biography, compiled by Ingrid Maclean. It tells the story of Nigel’s colourful life as a young man fully immersed in flower power age of the 1960’s right up to the present.
Behind Open Doors will be published by RESONANCE BookWorks, who are holding the launch of Nigel’s biography at the offices of the BROADCASTING, ENTERTAINMENT, COMMUNICATIONS AND THEATRE UNION
373-377, Clapham Road, London SW9 9BT
Tuesday 6th November 2018
17:30 (for 18:00) to 20:00
Nigel will be 75 on the day of the launch
Author Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon’s fourth novel is called The Keeper of the Faith. Eventispress are publishing it on 30th April 2017.
This is the back cover book blurb:
“A voyage of self-discovery, violent bloody combat, redemption and romance.
Vietnam 1968. A US Marine platoon, led by Tristram, 8th Earl of Oundle, is choppered into the wrong jungle location and left outside radio range, face to face with The Vietcong. The ensuing relentless frenzy of death and destruction carries Tristram to India, into a Benedictine monastery and finally to remotest Scotland in his search for truth, salvation and love.”
Being an encouraging and friendly publishing cooperative here at Eventispress we would like to share in the news of one of our authors. Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon celebrates the launch of his next novel, A Glass of Two Milks. (even though we did not publish it ourselves)
A GLASS OF TWO MILKS
It is the sequel to Nothing and Everywhere, although it is set far in the future in 2030 and is described as an adventure, action thriller.
What a colourful cover!
Nigel has published it under his own film and book company Fractal Fun and we wish him all the best with it.
