From Andrew W. Tinney, whose initial idea sparked something in all of us, to the paramedics, friends who brainstormed and provided socially distant tea, cake and of course, wine, to my patient daughters who stuck with me when I was late with dinner or a film, yet again, to the actors on the photoshoot, to the photographers, the bookshops, the printers, coordinators, and administrators and techies, to those who were simply there with advice, or a shoulder, when things were, or weren't, going to plan. And not forgetting the publishing professionals who believed in taking this on. I couldn't have done it without you!
As we find ourselves in another lockdown in Ireland, we know that good news stories are the thing that keeps us all going. We are about to launch our online pre-sales for 'Lights on the Horizon', and I will post the link here as soon as it's live, so please like and share far and wide, and perhaps even consider investing in a copy as a Christmas present for someone - perhaps someone in the health sector, our heroes, who are the reason this book became a reality. And while this is happening in the background, I'd like to ask anyone who has contributed in any way to the book not to be shy: I'd like to get a bit of an idea why you got involved in 'Lights on the Horizon', and, with your permission, do a little feature on you on this page. I've created a very short survey (5 questions, including name and email, so I can get in touch with you) and if you could fill it out and then hit the "All done" button, it will make its way to my inbox. I think it will also be interesting for other people to hear why you got involved, so it would be great if you'd complete the survey. If surveys are not your thing, just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and take care! Niamh x
