CONFESSIONS FROM ROMAHOLICS

Welcome to the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop

Woot!!

Another 26th January has come around where the blow up thongs , the Eskys and the barbies will be out in full force. No not that type of thong, although if it is a nice day I am sure there will be some out and about and no, not that type of barbie, the one we throw snags on. 


To celebrate we are joining in on the Aussie Author only giveaway. 

Now my donation is not an actual book, ( what can I say, I am a rule breaker) but he is an Aussie Author. I have a signed , by the man himself, Jay Kristoff , 'Stormdancer' print. I sent it to him to be signed and he kindly did that for me. I am sure nobody will complain.  The rules are , we had to have an Aussie Author, we can now go International, which makes a lot of sense to me. We can show off our Aussie Authors to you all. 





This is a 5 x 7' print
That is my camera flash, light mark

Also up for grabs is an unread, uncorrected proof copy of Jaclyn Moriarty's "A Corner of White".  Published by Pan Macmillan Australia and this book was donated to us by the lovely crew at Dymocks Garden City, Western Australia. You can read my review and author interview HERE!



What you all need to do, and there are approximately 54 blogs/authors on this hop, so a real nice easy hop to get from 1-54  and enter. Could win yourself something uber cool to read and spot some wonderful Aussie Authors along the way for your TBR piles.

  13. Thanks to the Australian Women Writers Challenge, I'm reading a lot of Aussie authors. I just finished a really hot paranormal romance by Christina Ashcroft, "Archangel of Mercy", and I've tracked down a copy of "The biggest estate on earth : how Aborigines made Australia" by Bill Gammage ... now I just have to brave the heat and go to the library to collect it :)

  24. Thank you very much! I`m in love with this giveaway! :) I`m from Europe and I`m non-native English speaker; there is not a very big choice of books in English here (except online shops) and they`re usually from American and British writers so this is a very beautiful opportunity to get to know the Australian writers :)
    I recently won a book Shine Light by Marianne de Pierres who is also an Australian writer but haven`t read it yet since it is the 3rd book in the series!
    Thanks!
