G’day! Welcome to the 2014 Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop. Can I hear an enthusiastic “Oi! Oi! Oi!” to indicate your excitement? All over Australia, book bloggers, authors and reviewers have joined forces to celebrate Aussie writers with a fair dinkum prize-winning bonanza. At my last count more than 50 blogs had signed up! What’s this mean for you? It means you have a pretty good chance of winning a book (or other bookish prize) – and the more blogs you hop to, the more chances you’ve got.

I guess you want to know what I have to give away, right? Fair enough. I have TWO books to give away, as it happens. Both are by Australian women writers and they are …

Book Cover:  Zoe's MusterBook Cover:  Southern Star

One lucky winner from Australia* will win a copy each of Zoe’s Muster by Barbara Hannay and Southern Star by J.C. Grey. Sorry to my international readers, but postage costs make it difficult for me to send books overseas.

Here’s what you need to do to enter:

  1. Add a comment telling me which Australian writer you would recommend to an overseas friend as a must read.
  2. This is optional but gives you an extra chance so … please LIKE my Facebook page so you can stay up to date with reviews and bookish news. When you do, post a “G’day” message on the page and I’ll give you an extra chance to win – when I see that, I’ll give you an extra chance to win.

Once you’ve done this, make sure you head to Book’d Out so you can enter all the other competitions on the blog hop. Entries close on January 28 at midnight.

Good luck!

PS. Choosing one author out of so many fantastic Australian authors would be very hard … so double good luck!
