Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop!


For the second year running, I am participating in this very awesome Australia Day blog hop which is being hosted by Book'd Out (an awesome blog, check it out if you haven't already). Up for grabs from me is an autographed copy of my novel, Being Abigail, which is about a slightly ... well eccentric young woman and her everyday domestic dramas. It is set in Glenelg, a part of Adelaide that is very close to my heart as my brothers and I were all born there, and is now a popular tourist destination. (But not, you know, because I was born there. That part is pure coincidence.) You can enter by clicking on the rafflecopter widget below. Entry is open to international readers. Don't forget to visit Book'd Out if you haven't already to get a full list of the bloggers who are participating.

PS For those of you who are wondering, I'll probably be spending my Australia Day chilling on the back veranda with my laptop (I'm well into the second draft of my next novel, hence why this post is so short,) a vegemite sandwich and perhaps I'll exchange my customary frog cake for a lamington ...

  2. My knowledge of Australian authors is minimal. This is going to be a good way of at least getting to know Australian authors.

    1. Mystica, it's a great way to get to know Australian authors. There are some excellent books and writers out there.

  3. I live in Adelaide so this would be an amazing read for me, visualising the places as I read about them. I'll be looking out for your book on the shelves

    1. Excellent! It's a real treat to read a book when you're already familiar with the setting, isn't it? Collins Booksellers Edwardstown stock all of my books :-)

  4. Thanks for the opportunity to win your book Kathryn. We also lived in Adelaide, and every time we visit (our son and his family live there) we visit Glenelg. It's a beautiful spot, and Adelaide is a great place too.

  6. We live in the Central West of NSW so our Oz Day will be a picnic somewhere nice...possibly followed up with a nice glass of wine!

    Thanks for the chance to win this book!
