It is hard to believe that it is May already, and that Aussie Author Month is over, for this year at least.
Every year, one of my blogging goals is to read more Aussie authors, and Aussie Author Month has definitely helped me to work towards this goal. I might not necessarily have read them this month, but I have got several new authors that I am intending to read soon.
So here's a recap of my Aussie Author Month.
Guest posts from Tansy Rayner Roberts, Sara Foster and Elisabeth Storrs.
Recap of Australian Romance Reader's Convention Part 1 and Part 2.
Reviews: Relentless Adaptations by Tansy Rayner Roberts (short story), Ransom by David Malouf, the Carmine Island stories from Glitter Rose by Marianne de Pierres.
In addition to the authors mentioned above who were all new to me authors, I also read Sarah Mayberry, Heather Boyd, Stephanie Laurens (yes, I know, as a historical romance reader it is way past time that I have read her), Thoraiya Dyer, Sean Williams, Stephanie Campisi, Peter M Ball, Simon Brown, Margo Lanagan and Gabrielle Wang.
Just a couple of things to finish up!

I have sent an email to each of you. Once I have your contact details I will forward those on to the publishers and get your prize on it's way to you!
Finally, thank you to everyone who participated in Aussie Author Month by posting, commenting, tweeting, donating to the Indigenous Literacy Project (it's not too late to donate to this excellent cause), posting on our Facebook page, and thank you to the other organisers for asking me to be part of it.
I look forward to Aussie Author Month being back, bigger and better, next year.
