    Ooo thank you so much for the giveaway. I didn’t know some of those authors were Australian. :)

    What a wonderful selection to choose from. I personally recommend The Street Sweeper, Bitter Greens and the Reilly title (for fun!).

    Thanks for including those of us who are Australian residents. At least you say we can compete, but the forms say we need to be Australians. Do we sign up there anyway? Or what?

    I meant those of us who are NOT Australians. Sorry.

    Great giveaway, Shellyrae! Three of those are on my TBR list (and I may be adding more,) and I’ve already read one – great selection! Am loving getting to read more of our Aussie authors – I live in sunny Queensland!

    Firstly thank you for the chance and secondly Happy Australia Day for when it arrives (as a cricket fan here in the UK I guess its another day of celebration in a long line of them for Australia recently!!!) Only one of the authors I know of is Patrick White so you’ve educated me a little at the same time!

    So happy to be sharing this Australia Day with everyone here. Thanks to Shelleyrae and Book’d Out for organising this. Please pop over to my blog if you get a moment. I’d love to see you. Now I’m going to go and have a cuppa (and maybe a beer) with you all on your blogs.
    Cheers, Noelle Clark.
