Our 2012 Aussie Author Challenge koala mascot has a name.
It was a hard fought battle all the way between the two early front-runners, ‘Steve’ and ‘Colo’.
Voting has now closed and our Aussie Author Challenge 2012 mascot’s name, receiving 30 out of the 59 votes cast, is:

For submitting the winning name, I will be ordering for Amy her choice of title by an Australian author from The Book Depository:
