This Is Us Now

Love in the Time of Cancer

We are very excited to announce our newest release, This Is Us Now by Jacinta Dietrich! The launch of this book was sold out with more than 100 people attending. In bookstores from 21 June 2021, This is Us Now is the story of two young people navigating a relationship in the most extraordinary circumstances.

Ella and Theo’s relationship is young and evolving and so are they. Their lives are going mostly to plan until a sudden cancer diagnosis changes everything. Nerves about meeting each other’s parents and living together turn to anxieties about survival. Easy becomes hard. Hard becomes impossible. Their lives cannot remain the same and now every moment is coloured by illness and the challenges that come with it.

They’re faced with the hardest decision: when you feel like you are losing someone you love, do you hold on or do you let go forever?

Jacinta Dietrich

When did you begin writing This is Us Now?

I started it during my Master’s degree as part of my Master’s project. It was only a couple of months after my partner finished chemotherapy. Since it was so fresh in my mind, I just decided to write it all down. 

Can you elaborate further on the inspiration behind the novel?

Sure. During my partner’s treatment, I read a lot of books about cancer but none of them had a story that resembled ours. It felt like there were only three types of illness narratives….

Welcome to Bellevue

Grattan Street Press is thrilled to announce the release of Welcome to Bellevue, a compelling fantasy action and adventure story by Seth Robinson. The e-book is available on Amazon and Kobo and you can now buy the physical copy here.

The hero of Welcome to Bellevue awakes on a ferry with no memory of how he came to be there. The boat is bound for Bellevue, a place he has never heard of – a place that proves very difficult to leave. 

Seth Robinson is an American-Australian author based in Melbourne. Seth retains his American twang and love of pine trees, something that contributed to the setting of Welcome to Bellevue, his debut novel.
