Win Books with Aussie Author Month!

Madigan Mine by Kirstyn McDermott

Somehow I keep forgetting to post about this. To help celebrate Aussie Author Month during April, the Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (ASFFWA) is giving away a truckload of books by Australian writers — including my own novel, Madigan Mine.

To participate in Aussie Author Month — and have a chance at winning some books — you can choose to do any of the following:

1) Write a review on A Writer Goes on a Journey (minimum 300 words, will be moderated) of any spec fic Aussie written book.

2) Write a fictional article, converting any Australian news story, and putting a spec fic twist on it (can be obvious, like putting in a Yowie sighting, or subtle, such as two puncture marks at the neck). Minimum 300 words. When posting, please also post the link of the original news article.

3) Write on your own blog about anything to do with Australian authors or books, such as your favourites, what makes Australian fiction special, Australian small press or self publishers, or anything you can think of! You must also link to our donation page!

For more information and complete entry details, please visit A Writer Goes on a Journey, the official ASFFW news site. Entries close on 30 April 2011.

As well as supporting and promoting Australian authors, part of Aussie Author Month is to fundraise for the Indigenous Literacy Project. Donate if you can and help close the gap and support indigenous education. It’s truly a case worth supporting.
