We celebrated the launch of Saul David's second George Hart novel, Hart of Empire last Thursday. The turnout was amazing so thank you to all you who came. If you were not able to make it we still have a number of our exclusive numbered copies left. For fans of Bernard Cornwell, this is a series that you really shouldn't miss.

This coming Wednesday we celebrate the publication of Traitor's Blood by Michael Arnold with a launch party at Goldsboro Books. This is a debut novel in a brand new series to feature Captain Stryker and is a must for Sharpe fans. This series is set in the civil wars and is a planned series of ten books. All of our copies are signed with a quote from the book and dated.

According to Nielsen BookScan figures, the Booker long-listed titles are at their strongest sales since 2001. With such a commercially viable selection we can see why. We have some titles still available in stock including, The Finkler Question, Trespass, Long Song, & Room

Also available now are Adrian Magson's debut hardback Red Station which is the first in a new series to feature Harry Tate of the MI5. This is a must for fans of Lee Child Reacher series and Matt Hilton's Joe Hunter series. Matt Hilton is such a big fan of Red Station he has quoted for the cover.
Matt Hilton has also signed and dated copies of his new Joe Hunter novel, Cut and Run.
Because of overwhelming demand, we also had Christopher Fowler re-visit Goldsboro Books to sign more copies of Bryant and May Off the Rails.
Elena Forbes visited to signed copies of her third novel, Evil in Return.

We are also delighted that Bob Shepherd visited to signed copies of his debut novel, The Infidel. An action-packed tale of honour and betrayal, The Infidel is thrilling, gripping and deeply relevant to the great military and political issues of our time.

We have many, many more books available in store so please do take a look at our New Releases section.

We previously announce that C J Sansom would be signing copies of Heartstone for Goldsboro Books. We are happy to announce that our copies are now indeed signed and will be available 2nd September. We are aware how rare signed copies of C J Sansom books are so we are completely delighted that he agreed to sign copies for Goldsboro Books. The books looks very handsome with head and tail bands and with red ribbon. If you want a signed copy we urge you to pre-order as soon as possible because once they have gone, well, they're gone.

We have now listed for sale on our website the second Young Sherlock Holmes book. It is another hardback exclusive to Goldsboro Books and numbered to 500 copies. Red Leech follows on from Death Cloud which has been a huge success.

We have also listed for pre-order, Kate Morten's, The Distant Hours. It is the first book to be published in hardback in the UK by this hugely popular and number one best-selling author. The Distant Hours will appeal to fans of Diane Setterfield and also biblio-mystery fans. Watch this amazing video here which tells you more about this wonderful book.

I Am Number Four is a fantastic cross-over novel by a prominant American writer but written under a pseudenym, Pittacus Lore. We have a UK exclusive slipcase edition and is signed and numbered to 500 copies. Our edition is beautiful and very different from the trade edition or the young adult edition planned. The film by Steven Spielberg is due for release February 2011.
