TWO Sell-Out Book-Signings In a Row! Author Justin Sheedy Looks Forward to His NEXT
Well, folks, after 2 sell-out book-signings in a row (thank me lucky stars) I’m looking forward to my next in-store event at Dymocks North Sydney Fri 21 Dec. I cannot adequately thank ALL who have supported me in my last 2 events – particularly the STELLAR Collette McGrath for her PR efforts, also Emmy Etié for her lovely photos.

The “North Shore Goes to War” theme of the above poster is explained HERE – graphic of article featured below – an ANZAC Day feature in Sydney’s North Shore Times re my local area ancestry so integral to my research for “Nor the Years Condemn”. This poster is currently on display in the North Sydney Stanton Library who have just put the book on their shelves. In addition, Daniel Quinn, the main character of my story, is a shining young man of the local area based on the actual WWII veterans whom I interviewed when writing the book.
I so look forward to meeting & chatting with all Dymocks North Sydney customers on December 21st and to sharing with them my passion for the stunning true Australian Story on which my book is based, the saga of the young Australians who crossed the Planet to fly Spitfires against Nazi tyranny in World War II. NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN has received the most heart-felt reviews – SEE HERE – and for Press articles SEE HERE. — Justin Sheedy, December 2012.
“Nor the Years Condemn” is based on the true story of the young Australians who flew Spitfires against the all-conquering might of Nazi Germany. In their late teens and early-20s, for the job at hand they had to be the ‘shining ones’, rendering the death of so many of them doubly heart-rending for the reader. Daniel Quinn, flanked by the often hilarious young men of his elite ilk, leaves his peacetime life behind to fight tyranny in this portrait of doomed, brilliant youth.
