Spotlight: What’s Making the News in Bath

19 May, 2014 in News

Following the recent success of hardback novel Go Swift and Far, it’s author, the Bath-based Gordon Bloor, launched his paperback version last month at the Theatre Royal’s 1805 Rooms.

Attendees included the Mayor of Bath, and the real-life citizens of Bath who featured in the book. Cecil Weir of Julian House was also invited to receive a donation of £2500 for the charity; after Gordon pledged late last year that £1 from each hardback sold would be donated.

Gordon also announced that he has started writing the sequel to the book and aims to finish it for Christmas 2016.

Reviews

“Hard on the heels of ‘Go Swift and Far’ comes this hugely enjoyable sequel and another success for Westcott”

Jack Jenkins

“Douglas Westcott’s ability to take history and make it interesting, dynamic and personal makes An Unfolding Soul the most enjoyable of reads!”

Steve Travis – Mercer Island, Washington USA

‘An interesting and believable cast of characters move through the conflict of development versus conservation, still relevant in Bath today as the city continues to deal with how society and social mores have changed over the years.’

Kate Joyce

‘Yet again Douglas Westcott provides the reader with a masterful insight into the City of Bath.’
