2015 Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop!


For the third year running, I am participating the the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop. Hosted by Book'd Out this blog hop is a great initiative and an awesome way to connect bloggers with some great Australian fiction. (And once you've finished here, don't forget to head to Book'd Out to see the full list of participants.)

This year, I will be giving away three prizes, all of which are books written by yours truly, mostly because I am into blatant self-promotion like that. The books are:

  • An autographed copy of Everybody Hates Abigail, my latest book which about a girl growing up in a small, South Australian town in the mid 1990s.
  • An autographed copy of Cats, Scarves and Liars, an unlikely tale that features murders, a red scarf and a talking cat.
  • An autographed copy of Behind the Scenes, which is about a young woman who scores a role on her favourite TV soap but soon discovers that the real dramas are the ones that occur behind the scenes.





Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below, and feel free to tell me in the comments section how all you awesome folk are planning to spend the Australia Day weekend. This competition is open internationally.

  3. Happy Australia Day Kathryn. I am a New Zealander in NZ so won't be celebrating, although we have our day on Feb 6th. Anyway as I go for a swim, I'll think of all the Aussies who will be enjoying their beaches and bush this Australia weekend.

  21. My daughter has to work this morning and then this afternoon she is moving out of home as she is set to start her first year at Uni this year. I love that she is spreading her wings and becoming more independent but it sure will be quiet around here.

  23. Hi Kathryn

    As Australia Day draws to a close I can tell you I started the day setting up my class for the start of school on Wednesday. Then I went home to find some activities to do on the first day that have a Aussie flavour. I hope you enjoyed your day :-)
