Just finished reading your book “Red Dust”….wow what a great book..it caught me in to the story in the first page and I just could not put it down until I finished it. The front cover is wonderful and eye catching on the store shelf. I love Australian stories like this one…Keep up the brilliant work..Will be buying more of your books as you write them. I will also be telling my country bumpkin mates about your book. Ive lived all my life on the land and would not have it any other way.
Hi Georgina – my publishers will be so pleased to hear your comments about the cover! We love it and I’m sure that’s one of the reasons that Red Dust has sold so well. Especially since it’s known that 90% of sales on books are made because of the cover.
I’m also really pleased you liked the ‘inside’ of the book too! Thanks for getting in contact.
I have recently finished your book ‘Red Dust’ and loved it. I discovered you by accident on Rachel Treasure’s website and glad I did. It’s great to see that there’s books about the Australian outback properties and what they have to endurer, coming out the last couple of years – and they’re very popular. I’m looking forward to getting ‘Blue Skies’ when it is released next year and I am so glad to hear that you’ve already onto your third book. Congratulations.
Hi Nicole, Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed Red Dust – and I’m so pleased you found me! Yes, Blue Skies is out in April next year, we’re doing the editing at the moment and Purple Roads is a work in progress. Please keep visiting! I try and up-date the site very regularly.
Red Dust will be released around March 15th in Germany with following title: wild eucalyptus.
Pls have a look at the amazon link attached:
Hope you’ll like the cover of the German print?
Red Dust is an amazing, intriguing and jolly well written story – well done! I took time out and buried my nose in it and did not put it down until finished and man was I satisfied?!! ‘That’ is what I call a rare but great day!!! Naturally my books look pretty swish with your stickers too. Blue Skies = awesome, Red Dust = brilliant, Purple Roads = can’t wait!!! Good on you Fleur, you are an incredible woman.
