Australia Day Blog Hop!

25 Jan

Hi! Welcome to my contribution for the

Australia Day Blog Hop!

Thanks to hosts and !

Another link to Book’dout:

This Australia Day, let’s celebrate Australian literature: Australian writing. Let’s enhance our connection between our writers and readers: and show the world what we’ve done!

As my share of the Blog Hop, I am offering the chance to win one paperback copy of my second book:  proudly Australian in title, too.

Here it is: ‘A Taste  of Life and Love in Australia’.

A Taste of Life and Love in Australia

‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ is a collection of Short Stories and Vignettes set in modern times.  Mostly tales of romance, it has been rated by several reviewers. Here’s the link to that of Shelleyrae at Book’d out.


I’m a self-published Australian author of six titles available through Amazon.  Currently,  four titles are available as Kindle editions.  My seventh book is nearing completion. All are edited by my husband, the creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House, Ronald Sharp.

Entries for the giveaway close at midnight, January 28, 2013 AEST.

Sorry: the giveaway is restricted to residents of Australia. To enter, please leave a comment, and indicate that you are eligible.

Of course, overseas readers are more than welcome to comment, too.

The winner will be announced on 4nd February.

Enjoy the Blog Hop, and Good Luck!
