Happy Sunday! We’ve finally had a week of warm, dry weather in Canberra, Australia, that is beach weather and feels more like a normal summer. I’m not a fan of heat and humidity, and I’m happy with our cooler overnight temps and daytime temps that sometimes reach the low 30’sC (high 80’sF). Two summers ago we sweltered through long heatwaves and bushfires running wild in south eastern Australia. La Nina brings the rain that breaks the drought and greens the countryside in mid-summer. My son took the photo below this weekend while hiking at our National Arboretum in Canberra.
On Monday we kicked off our annual Birthday Bash giveaway. Paperback book bundles, ebook bundles, a paperback bundle for international readers who live outside USA, plus a fabulous Grand Prize. The Grand Prize and paperback bundles #8-11 are only available for readers who have a USA mailing address.
If you live outside USA with a non-US mailing address, you’re eligible to enter the bundle #12 paperback International giveaway. Only international readers need to register their details for the international paperback giveaway. Here is the link for international readers to register.
Check out our 2022 Birthday Bash web page for more information on the giveaway.
