I’ve signed up for the Australian Women Writers Challenge 2016 – woohoo!
And doesn’t she just look so pretty in purple!
As most of you know, I’m a huge supporter of Australian Fiction and what better way than to promote our wonderful authors than by joining the Australian Women Writers Challenge.
Being an Australian book blogger has opened my eyes up to just how much talent we have in our country and allowed me to explore the great work that our authors have to offer and appreciate the hard yards that they all put in just to get their books published.
Like last year (which I admit was almost a write-off), I’ll once again be taking part in the Franklin Challenge which requires me to read 10 books and review at least 6!
The Challenge is now open, running from the 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2016 and you may sign up at any time during 2016 until the end of November here.
There’s absolutely no need for you to have a blog in order to take part – all you need to do is nominate the number of books you plan on reading throughout the year and share that reading on social media (Facebook or Twitter). You can also publish your reviews on Goodreads or at The Reading Room, where you’ll be able to keep track of your reading as well as share it with others. Don’t forget, however, that you’ll need to link your reviews back to the Australian Women Writer’s website here.
For more information on this fantastic initiative, please visit the Australian Women Writers home page.
You’ll also find them on Facebook and you can follow them on Twitter (don’t forget to use the hashtag #aww2016 in your Tweets).
I’ve already got plenty of great reading scheduled (with a number of my old favourites publishing new novels) and hope you too have a wonderful year of reading planned.
Here’s to you discovering and enjoying the great authors that our Land Down Under has to offer!
Happy reading everyone.
