By popular demand the Aussie Author Challenge is back for its 7th year!
Whether you are a patriotic Australian, an aspiring or armchair tourist or simply an international reader wanting to discover some talented new authors and interact with like-minded readers, the Aussie Author Challenge could be for you!
The objective of this challenge is to showcase the wonderful diversity of the work being produced by Australian authors.
This dedicated page here at Booklover Book Reviews will be your one-stop shop for the challenge.
In addition to 3 different challenge levels…
- When I host giveaways of books written by Australian writers, participants of this challenge will be eligible for extra entries into the random draws (1 extra entry for challenge registration + 1 extra entry for each book review link accepted at that time).
- We will be interviewing both established and up and coming Australian authors.
- A link to every book review published as part of this challenge will be featured in an Aussie Author Challenge Update section of our Booklover Book Reviews Newsletter (currently 500+ subscribers). You can sign-up to receive this newsletter at the top of this page (right sidebar).
