Aussie Author Month 2012 Wrap Up

Aussie Author MonthAs it starts to cool down here in Australia and the end of April is upon us, thought it appropriate to do a wrap up of all that happened here at Booklover Book Reviews during Aussie Author Month.

I read lots of titles by Australian authors:

Sink or Swim by Ross Collier (my review)

Due Preparations for the Plague by Janette Turner Hospital (my review)

Love in the Years of Lunacy by Mandy Sayer (my review)

Zen Queen by Kirsty McManus (my review)

Five Bells by Gail Jones (my review)

Graven Images by Ray Norris (review coming soon)

Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth (my review)

All these titles will also count toward my participation in the Aussie Author Challenge and where appropriate the Australian Women Writers Challenge.

Love in the Years of Lunacy by Mandy Sayer


I hosted and announced the winner of the international giveaway of a paperback copy of Ross Collier’s crime thriller Sink or Swim.

And thanks to Allen & Unwin entries remain open for my current international giveaway of historical war romance Love in the Years of Lunacy by Mandy Sayer. Entries close 12 May – ENTER NOW.

A full listing of the other book bloggers that participated in Aussie Author Month, including their posts and competitions can be found at the Aussie Author Month website.

Aussie Author Month is about celebrating the uniqueness and great quality that our nation contributes to literature by the promotion of authors and books we love from Australia (or, as with various celebrities and pavlova, those we claim as our own anyway even if they live in another country nearby). This great initiative was started by Nyssa @vintagezombie, Kat @bookthingo and Marg @margreads in 2011.
