Requesting thoughts on new Ebook Cover

 »Author Justin Sheedy seeking opinion re new Visuals.
Justin Sheedy Hello to All in the EBookFriends Community. I'm highly grateful to have been able to post recently on EbookFriends re my new ebook, "Nor the Years Condemn", a World War 2 historical fiction.

I had 14 different versions for the book cover for it and I'd be highly interested to see what all here think of the final result. Please see it at the Signature link below.

I'll be highly appreciative of all thoughts & views, technical suggestions etc.

Your sincerely

Justin Sheedy In fact, since my original post, the book has been published as a print on demand paperback at Amazon, has had the early reader reviews I always hoped for, I've just been invited to a local Writers' Festival for it, a string of newspapers have expressed their interest in the book, with the first network to feature "Nor the Years Condemn" this Saturday as their "Weekend Must-Read". Reviews below...

By Michael High, Colorado Springs, USA.

"Nor the Years Condemn": Where to start? The writing. Excellent. Everything flowed and, from the first chapter to the end, was fluid. Hints here and there as to what may happen in the future were freely dropped along the way. This kept me engrossed, kept me reading.

The story. Again, excellent. The history behind these young men (and women), the planes they used, the circumstances surrounding this time frame, et cetera - all well done. I thoroughly enjoyed the "story" of each character and how they interacted with each other. There were some shockers in there; war is hell, no? I also liked the hint of "espionage" involved.

"Nor the Years Condemn", to me, was a fantastic read. I can but recommend this book to others and impatiently await Justin's next work.

By Martin Zitek, Sydney, Australia.

"Nor the Years Condemn" recounts the horrors of war as seen by one elite and effective unit of WWII. The author puts us there, in that time, by depicting: language, description of locations, the attitudes of the people and the spirit of the nation that would see it prevail through its darkest period of history. The reader is shown in clear, flowing narrative how war can touch us all, from the other side of the world, to the heights of the clouds.

The characters feel so real, we are sure they must have existed. The flying is portrayed so brilliantly, we feel an ace fighter pilot must have possessed Justin's head while he wrote this. The planes themselves become characters, even though mere machines, they became tools of victory and a symbol of ingenuity, technology and bloody determination. This is a testament to the research undertaken by the author and his wordsmithing we see as the end result.

We should count ourselves lucky today that the whole world has not since been embroiled in a such conflict and we hope it never will be again. Recounting the bravery of these men, and the staggering odds against their surviving, should make us never forget.
We will remember them.

Justin Sheedy Oh, plus this...

Review by Shell Lancaster, Melbourne, Australia.

“Nor The Years Condemn” is a must-have for any history buff. Not only for an insight into what it was like at the start of the war, but also an insight into Sydney at the time. Not only for the boys, everyone will take something away from this. Could definitely see this made into a mini-series or movie. The author sucks you in from the start, it is very hard to put down. You can tell that the author did a lot of research when writing this book and is passionate about the story and characters. Hoping there will be a sequel.
