2018 Australia Day Giveaway

on Jan 26, 2018 in Book Reviews, News and Events

Celebrated since the 1800s in Australia, Australia Day can mean different things to different people. It can be a celebration of the formation of a modern nation, the mourning of the loss of land and culture for many of the first peoples, an acknowledgement of the diversity and contribution of immigrants from around the world to our nation.

For many it’s an excuse for a barbie, a day at the beach and  having a good time.

And here is one more thing to celebrate this Australia Day — a celebration of  Christian writers through a fantastic giveaway of twelve books by Australian authors and/or set in Australia.  Books I’ve read and enjoyed or that are on my to-read list. And one of them is mine.

The Books

Akrad’s Children by Australian author Jeanette O’Hagan – a YA epic fantasy with courtly intrigue, a touch of romance and imagination – set in the world of Nardva.

The Boy in A Hoodie by Catriona McKeown – a contemporary YA novel set in Queensland

A New Resolution by Rose Dee – romantic suspense set in central to north Queensland

Too Pretty by Andrea Grigg – a Christian romance set in NSW

Then There Was You by Kara Isaac -  a contemporary romance set in Sydney

The Bridesmaid’s Hero (A Snowgum Creek Novella) by Narelle Atkins – a sweet romance set in the Snowy Mountains

Charter to Redemption by DJ Blackmore – a historical romance set in Sydney

Grace in Strange Disguise by Christine Dillon – contemporary fiction set in Sydney, that asks some big questions

Blaze in the Storm by Jenny Glazebrook – a contemporary YA that has circuses and horses

The Elusive Miss Ellison by Australian author Carolyn Miller – a regency romance
