Today's the day, it's taken so long and yet appeared in a flash. I so hope you enjoy Eve, Callie and Sienna's story and enjoy your visit to outback Australia and to Red Earth township.
Huge thanks to all who have supported and cheered me along the way to this new and exciting facet of my writing.
Poor Ian, my long-suffering husband, tells me I've found another special Fiona day to add to the special days like Fiona's birthday, Fiona's mother's day, and now Fiona's book launch day and he will be my 'beck and call' boy again today. You really have been amazing. Thank you my love.
Huge thank you to my friends in writing, who have read when I needed someone to read, advised when I needed advice, and cheered when the good news came. You are all champions.
Thank you to my friends and colleagues at work and ALSO, who answer questions and listen to me waffle, and also cheer when the good news comes. More champions.
Thank you to Clare Forster, my agent from Curtis Brown who believed in me and made things happen. Penguin Australia and Belinda Byrne who believed in the original idea. Sarah Fairhall, my fabulous editor, who helped the dream come true and is even flying up for my book launch from Melbourne. And Jo and Maria working hard behind the scenes. Ladies, you are all wonderful!
And finally to those who smile and ask how it's going and genuinely care, from my home town and from long ago schools and nursing and on Facebook and twitter and even from all over the world with good wishes. You are all champions and I thank you from an absolute well of gratitude. WHAT A FUN RIDE IT'S BEEN!
