Well, this is the cover for Blue Skies! As you can see it’s fairly similar to Red Dust, but there is a reason behind that. Allen and Unwin are making it easy for you guys to know that the book is by me – you might forget my name, but you should be able recognise the cover as one of my books!
Anne-Marie Ladegaard is a photographer who takes wonderful photos and it’s her photo that is on the front – the windmill, tank, hills and misty morning. It caught my editors attention and the next thing we knew, it was on the cover! How cool is that? You’ll be hearing the story behind the photo, shortly.
The competition for the five signed copies of Red Dust comes to a close on Friday, so if you haven’t entered and you want to get in quick! I’ll get all the books posted off on Monday next week, so the winners receive them in time for Christmas. Click ‘here’ to take to you to the competition.
Aw, thank you for those kind words, Fleur – I AM just an amateur and somewhat obsessive, photographer!! I am so thrilled with the way the cover has turned out! I look forward to talking a bit more about the photo and where it was taken. 🙂
Can’t wait to get my copy of Blue Skies and get stuck into it. Have already got several friends and family who will be putting in their orders early!! Here’s to another best seller, Fleur. 🙂 xx
Can’t wait till Blue Skies comes out, front cover looks amazing. I have just finished reading Red Dust. I loved it. It was heartwarming and made me look at the world in a different way.
I have spent my whole life, 15 yrs, growing up in a country town but lately I have just wanted to move out west so your story really made me imagine on how life can turn around in a matter of seconds.
Thanks so much!!!
Hi Amy, so pleased that you enjoyed Red Dust and that it made an impact on you – I like to hear those stories! Take care, Fleur
I really like the front covers of your books Fleur, the photos on both covers are just beautifully taken. Any chance we can read the blurb on the back? I just cannot wait to read it!
Hi Adele, no, no blurb yet, we’re still working on that, but as soon as I have it, I’ll pop it up!
