Showcasing “NO GREATER LOVE” by Justin Sheedy

No Greater Love by Justin Sheedy

To abandoned child, Colin Stone, World War Two grants an escape from the mean streets of St. Kilda. A natural warrior, his talents qualify him to join an elite group of young men. The shining ones. Who fly Spitfires against Nazi tyranny. Rising with them, from the top Colin Stone looks down on a world that has doomed his first true friends.

Bringing to vivid life true Australian war history and events, No Greater Love is a saga in the classic mold, featuring the drama, beauty, heroism and horror of one young man’s war journey through stunning Malta, Egypt and North Africa, Sicily, England and Europe. It is a portrait of the once-in-a-lifetime characters the war places on his path, of the tragic, wholesale waste of war, on occasion even the profound humanity of his enemy, and of his evolving perception of his world for what it is.

Though standing on its own as a ripping and also highly emotional read, No Greater Love is the third and final chapter of Justin Sheedy’s now widely and warmly cherished World War Two novel trilogy begun with Nor the Years Condemn and Ghosts of the Empire. Continuing and now concluding their portrait of shining young men destined never to grow old, No Greater Love is the full and rich story of Part 1’s reader-favourite character, Aussie rough diamond Colin Stone (‘Stoney’). It is the story of his war, 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.

He has worked in radio, for a while as a go-go dancer as well as for the Australian Public Service though has since made a full recovery. If you have ever worked in the public service, you will understand. If you still do work in the public service, Justin remembers you, so you better have been nice to him as he’s writing books now.

His efforts have seen him invited to the Byron Bay Writers’ Festival 2010 and to the Gloucester Writers’ Festival 2012.

His books “Goodbye Crackernight” and “Nor the Years Condemn”, “Ghosts of the Empire” plus now his latest book “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer” are available at AMAZON in paperback and Kindle formats, in Australia at Dymocks Books nation-wide. Also at GLEEBOOKS, ABBEY’S BOOKSHOP, BERKELOUW BOOKS & THE AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL, in the UK via WATERSTONES, WH SMITH and orderable at YOUR local bookstore.

 

On a personal note, I have read all of Justin’s books and have enjoyed each one thoroughly. As recommendations go I have no difficulty in promoting Justin Sheedy’s books. I wish him every success with his latest offering “No Greater Love”.

Goodbye, Crackernight

Justin-Sheedy-Dymocks-8On the eve of Fathers’ Day 2016, Justin Sheedy will be launching his latest historical novel, No Greater Love. Bringing to vivid life true Australian war history and events, it 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 a portrait of the once-in-a-lifetime characters the war places on his path, of the tragic, wholesale waste of war, on occasion even the profound humanity of his enemy.

Though concluding Sheedy’s now highly acclaimed World War Two trilogy (all titles available on the day), No Greater Love is the stand-alone full story of Book 1’s reader-favourite character, Aussie rough diamond Colin Stone.

Third Time Lucky

A Tangled Web by Viviane Elisabeth Borg gets another lease of life when it is released on Friday 12th August 2016 by Luminosity Publishing, UK.

This will be third time in four years that A Tangled Web which is a mystery/suspense novel with romantic elements is published.

It was first published independently by Robert L J Borg as an e-book on Smashwords in 2012:

A Tangled Web Cover Final Revised

In 2014, Sweet Cravings Publishing, USA (SCP) made an offer to publish the novel as an e-book and in print. Sales of the book did reasonably well under their banner, a lot to do perhaps with the flattering review by Nightowl: http://www.nightowlreviews.com/v5/Reviews/Paulinemichael-reviews-A-Tangled-Web-by-Viviane-Elisabeth-Borg

ATangledWeb_LRG

Regrettably in September 2015 SCP went out of business and publishing rights were restored to the author.

Since then the book was submitted to several publishers and in May 2016 a three-year worldwide publishing contract was offered and accepted.

Viviane Elisabeth Borg is now eagerly looking forward to seeing her novel “live” again for all those millions of potential readers who enjoy a good mystery with romantic elements and, of course, a happy ending…

Serena Burton is a shy and disillusioned young English woman holidaying on the idyllic Mediterranean island of Malta. Although she finds romance with the hotel manager, Luigi Coletti she finds it hard to commit herself completely to their relationship. This is mostly due to her deep involvement in the life of her employer, an elderly writer named Louisa Weston.

As Serena gradually discovers Louisa’s strange past she is drawn into a tangled web of hidden mysteries. As these are slowly uncovered her fledging romance struggles to develop into something more meaningful. Regardless Luigi persists and though he perceives a future, it comes at a high price…

You will be able to find Viviane’s book initially on Luminosity’s website at http://luminositypublishing.com/ and then on the usual popular book distributors. Buy links will be added to the blog page of A Tangled Web as they become available.

To those people who have not yet read it, please do, as I am sure you would enjoy it. I for one who has reviewed it countless times when working alongside the Sweet Cravings and Luminosity editors will never tire of it.
