Major Publishing Deal for Author Justin Sheedy – World War II Trilogy for world-wide release by New Holland

I’ve waited about 10 years to be able to say this so here goes. I have just signed a MAJOR PUBLISHING DEAL. Yes, it is a dream-come-true for me to be able to say that I have just signed a major publishing deal for my books with New Holland Publishing. In just weeks from now, my historical fiction trilogy will be available worldwide INCLUDING, for the first time, on bookstore shelves in the United Kingdom. Which is awesome as “Nor the Years Condemn”, “Ghosts of the Empire” and “No Greater Love” are so richly SET in the UK. PLUS New Holland will be publishing Book 4 in the series, “Ghosts of the Future”, this coming October, me currently writing like a man possessed. So there you are. Never thought it would but everything I ever wanted and never expected has just come to pass. Yes, dreams DO come true. Updated book cover artwork for my trilogy featured below. All titles available soon in bookstores & online. — Justin Sheedy

Author’s Return to Number 1 Best-Seller Store

Justin Sheedy No Greater Love Number 1Hello, Booklovers!  Justin Sheedy here. During 2017 my latest book achieved Number 1 best-seller status for Australian Fiction at Dymocks Sydney so if you haven’t read it yet I would love to meet you and sign you a copy of “No Greater Love” at my first appearance at Australia’s premier bookstore for 2018.  So what’s it about?

Justin-Sheedy-Dymocks-8Intensively based on true Australian war history and events, “No Greater Love” is a saga of the drama, beauty, heroism and horror of a young Australian Spitfire pilot’s war journey through stunning Malta, Egypt and North Africa, Sicily, England and Europe. It is also a salute to the hero girls the war places on his path, a portrait of the tragic, wholesale waste of war, on occasion even the profound humanity of his enemy.

“No Greater Love” is the story of Aussie rough-diamond, Colin Stone, of his loyalty and devotion to his friends, of his enduring love for the mother who abandoned him, and his dreams of being held by her once again.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to meeting you. — Justin Sheedy

Date: Saturday 9th June 2018 / Time: 10am-5pm / Venue: Dymocks Sydney / Cost: Free

Author Justin Sheedy Video Interview by Tom Keneally Library

I have just had the honour of being videoed by the Tom Keneally Library, the new central-Sydney library and literary centre recently founded by arguably Australia’s greatest living author, national treasure, Tom Keneally.  Filmed in the iconic Berkelouw Books Paddington just last week, the video (viewable below) was arranged as a cross-promotion between me as an author, the Tom Keneally Library, and Berkelouw Books Paddington, the bookstore that launched my career as an author with my first book, “Goodbye Crackernight”, back in 2009. It was indeed a pleasure, 5 books later, to talk on-camera about my literary journey since then and with some heartfelt & hard-won advice for aspiring authors. Since filming, the video has been receiving rave responses, and closes for me a truly rewarding 2017 during which my latest book, “No Greater Love”, achieved Number 1 Best-Seller status at Australia’s premier bookstore, Dymocks Sydney.
