Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop ~ Love An Aussie Author

To celebrate Australia Day (26th Jan) and my birthday this week I'm participating in the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Book'd Out & Confessions from Romaholics sharing my Love an Aussie Author love :)

Anna Campbell, Cath Crowley and James Laidler are just 3 of the many Australian authors I've read and loved. Australian literature is a treasure-trove of goodies; inspiring, award winning authors, stories to make your heart race or stop or break, novels to make you laugh, cry, swoon, scream and beg for more. 

And if you just can't get enough of our Australian authors click on the road sign on the left hand side bar of my blog (hard to miss) and you can browse the Australian author titles I've read. 


SEVEN NIGHTS IN A ROGUE'S BED by Anna Campbell ~ 2 copies
(1 International & 1 Australian winner - you must be in Book Depository delivery area) 

Check out my review ~ "romantic escapism is like chocolate for the soul."

Synopsis: Desperate to save her sister's life, Sidonie Forsythe has agreed to submit herself to a terrible fate: Beyond the foreboding walls of Castle Craven, a notorious, hideously scarred scoundrel will take her virtue over the course of seven sinful nights. Yet instead of a monster, she encounters a man like no other. And during this week, she comes to care for Jonas Merrick in ways that defy all logic—even as a dark secret she carries threatens them both.

Ruthless loner Jonas knows exactly who he is. Should he forget, even for a moment, the curse he bears, a mere glance in the mirror serves as an agonizing reminder. So when the lovely Sidonie turns up on his doorstep, her seduction is an even more delicious prospect than he originally planned. But the hardened outcast is soon moved by her innocent beauty, sharp wit, and surprising courage. Now as dangerous enemies gather at the gate to destroy them, can their new, fragile love survive?

Anna Campell is the author of passionate historical romance. Find her on Facebook - Twitter - Website - Goodreads

GRAFFITI MOON by Cath Crowley ~ 1 copy
(Australia & International entrants - you must be in Book Depository delivery area) 

See my review ~ "sweet, sad, whimsical, hopeful, funny ,beautiful."

Synopsis: "Let me make it in time. Let me meet Shadow. The guy who paints in the dark. Paints birds trapped on brick walls and people lost in ghost forests. Paints guys with grass growing from their hearts and girls with buzzing lawn mowers."

It’s the end of Year 12. Lucy’s looking for Shadow, the graffiti artist everyone talks about. His work is all over the city, but he is nowhere. 

Ed, the last guy she wants to see at the moment, says he knows where to find him. He takes Lucy on an all-night search to places where Shadow’s thoughts about heartbreak and escape echo around the city walls.

Cath Crowley is the author of YA & children's novels. Find her on Facebook - Website - Twitter - Goodreads

THE TASTE OF APPLE by James Laidler + 13 track interactive CD
(Australians Only) - thanks James

See my review ~ "powerful, beautiful, hard-hitting"

Synopsis: Pedro Jones is lost. Abandoned by his father and forced into commission housing with his Filipino immigrant mother, the future seems bleak.

But when Pedro meets the 'mad' street busker, Johnny Lazzaro, and gets involved with the East Timor freedom movement, life takes an unexpected detour through the uncharted backblocks of the human heart.

James Laidler is an emerging novelist. His 2nd novel Pulling Down the Stars will be published in Feb 2013. Find him on Website - Twitter - Goodreads
