News from our authors:
Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon has many events planned for early in the year. Firstly he has been invited to speak at Syd Barrett’s 70th birthday party on 9th January in Cambridge. We are looking forward to hearing about it and seeing the photos. He will certainly take along some copies of ‘Life is Just …’ to the celebration.
Brian Kerr’s book ‘An Unassuming County – The Making of the Bedfordshire Countryside’ continues to sell well in local bookshops and he has enjoyed the warm welcome at numerous events and local groups throughout 2015. We wish Brian continued success in 2016.
Colin Calvert is considering releasing a paperback version of ‘Born Again Bandits’ in 2016.
Diana Jackson‘s new fantasy memoir was released on Amazon at the end of 2015. There was no big fan-fair at Diana’s request because she was in the middle of moving to Scotland. She aims to hold a celebration of the release of the paperback
in Kinghorn, Fife sometime in February 2016. Watch this space!
“It was all captivating and I loved meeting all the different characters that reminded me of myself & my friends & their families – feeling those difficulties of growing up in an era that was stale & hostile about anything new or different – the ramifications of just being a bit unusual – the glory of finding other things in life – it was painful to revisit those days of charging out – but very comforting to know that we’ve moved on since then.
Nigel makes it all come alive & you find yourself being sucked in to a way of life that just makes you so delighted that attitudes & opinions have thankfully moved on – his writing is terrific, tempting & thoroughly enjoyable.
It’s the best book that I’ve read for a long while.d”
Does ‘Life is Just’ bring back any memories for you in the 1960’s?

News of Nigel who has enjoyed a couple of online interviews in the past week!
Lisa Haselton is well worth following for her interesting writing related posts. Here’s a link to Nigel’s interview on her blog all the way from the USA:
He has also been busy over this side of the pond too and has been a guest on our own author Diana Jackson’s blog www.dianamj.wordpress.com
Brilliant to see you on the web Nigel!
Here are the entries to the ‘Life is Just … competition. The rules were just to finish the phrase without being rude or swear!
Here are the entries:
LIFE IS OR LIFE IS JUST …
@VicPetit … an anagram of file …
@RoseEnglishUKauthor ‘Life is Just Rosy’
@EllaMarieR Full of Surprises’?
Eric Smith The other little point of note Diana, life’s a bowl of cherries. :))
Colin van Geffen Life is what happens while you’re making other plans – John Lennon
Steve Hudson My favourite ( from 1970 – hippy era)
“Life is but a beanstalk, man!”
I think the ‘but’ gives a rather existential twist to it. The lovely (Keswick Hall) man who coined it, unfortunately is no longer with us.
Alex Rychlewski There’s a classic French one, but it’s quite rude and pessimistic, so I’ll refrain smile emoticon.
Peter Arnold I also like hearing people come up with mixed metaphores and sayings I have a friend who says ‘it buggers belief’
Eric Smith A thing of beauty is a joy forever! Or how about, Time and tide wait for no man!
Pamela Gilmour Life is just empty without someone to love & share it with.
Paul Fellows: Life is like an onion. It has many layers and all of them stink!
And the winner, chosen by author of
‘Life is Just…’ Nigel Lesmoir Gordon’:
Colin van Geffen ‘Life is what happens while you’re making other plans’ – John Lennon
Why? because it not only reflects Nigel’s novel ‘Life is Just…‘ perfectly but it is also of the same era – the 1960’s.
Congratulations Colin. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a Kindle voucher to buy ‘Life is Just…’
If you didn’t win you can find it on amazon.co.uk
Well done Colin and all the other entrants. There will be another competition soon!
