Australia Day Giveaways

2016AustraliaDay-bloghopWell, it’s Australia Day on Tuesday 26 January, and I thought I’d do a couple of things this year to celebrate Australian authors by giving away a few paperback copies of my Aussie YA book… but to Australian readers only though, sorry!

Really, I just wanted to see how many times I can mention Australia in one post. Or Orstraya, as we like to pronounce it on days when it’s just too hot to speak properly, or we’re worried we’ll cop a few flies in the mouth.

So… I’m participating in Shelleyrae’s Book’d Out Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop. Now, I’ve never joined in a blog hop before, so it will be exciting to see how it goes – but if I can participate in a Twitter teen chat at 100km an hour, thenΒ I should be able toΒ handle this πŸ˜‰

Shelleyrae is celebrating Australian authors so it’s an honour to be part of it, even if I’m only giving away oneΒ signed copy of my own YA contemporary book, Facing Up.

To enter the blog hop giveaway, please leave me a comment below that you’d like to enter. Entries close at midnight (Australian EST) on Wednesday 27 2016, and the winner will be drawn the next day & notified.

Facing Up_Cover.inddFacing Up has had some good reviews on Goodreads, so it must be a reasonable readΒ – in fact, I’m also celebrating the Australia Day public holiday by doing another Goodreads Giveaway! I’ll be sending out three signed copies of the aforesaid Facing Up to three Aussies. A signed paperback, of course, as I don’t think they’ve invented a way to sign an eBook yet. Give them time, I’m sure it will happen πŸ˜‰

To enter the Goodreads Giveaway, please click here… (it starts on January 26, 2016 and ends on February 2, 2016)

So there you go, it’s an all-Australian, Aussie, Oz, #LoveOzYA, Orstrayan book giveaway!

And a huge thank you to Shelleyrae at Book’d Out – while you’re here, take a tour around the other lovely blogs in the Blog Hop (brings Skippy to mind, doesn’t it). Gotta love Orstraya, maaaaaate!

ENTRIES TO THE BLOG HOP DRAW ARE NOW CLOSED – WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED THIS SUNDAY. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED! (and Aussie residents, please check out the Goodreads Giveaway if you want another chance to win :))
