Treasure Hunt anyone?

Hands up  – who loves a treasure hunt??

Can you remember the last time you did one? Was it an easter egg hunt, or a mintie trail? Maybe it was a geocache run – and if you don’t know what that is, google it – fascinating stuff. Perhaps it was a car rally style hunt with dinner and a good bottle of wine at the end of the trail.

Well, have we got a deal for you!

Over the past few months, I and three other Australian writers have got together (in a cyber-sense) to do some promotion; while we each have different writing styles, our books hopefully appeal to a similar audience – a discerning readership, of course! Set in various parts of regional Australia that we each know well, all our stories contain romantic elements and often suspense elements. And since many of our readers read books much faster than we can write them, it’s good to be able to suggest other books that might appeal!

(The four of us – Fleur McDonald, Bronwyn Parry, Fiona Palmer, and I – now have a FaceBook page: Australian Outback Romances and Mysteries. If you’re on FaceBook, please visit and say hello, and become a fan of our page!)

To celebrate Fleur’s April release of Blue Skies and my own new release, we’re running a Treasure Hunt Giveaway!

Up for grabs is a collection of not one, not two, not three, but FOUR signed books to one lucky winner!

The books are:

• Blue Skies, by Fleur McDonald

• Border Watch, by Helene Young

• The Family Farm, by Fiona Palmer

• Dark Country, by Bronwyn Parry.

Two runners up will each receive a signed book; the first runner-up can choose one book from the four, and the second runner-up can choose one book from the remaining three. So, how do you enter? It’s a treasure hunt, so you need to find the answers to four questions – the answers can easily be found in the first chapters of each book, which you can find by clicking on the link on the book title.

The four questions are: 1. In Fleur McDonald’s Blue Skies, who was with Amanda, when she heard the terrible news? 2. In Helene Young’s Border Watch, what is the name of the snack bar caretaker who greets Morgan and Sam when they are out for their early morning run? 3. In Fiona Palmer’s The Family Farm, what did Izzy’s mum have in her gold locket that hung around her neck? 4. In Bronwyn Parry’s Dark Country, what did Kris put into the boot (trunk) of Gil’s car? When you’ve found all four answers, hop back to Bronwyn Parry’s blog, and submit your entry on the form there.

And for those living overseas – yes we will post anywhere in the world! (But please be fair, folks – just one entry per person…)

Entries close at midnight on Friday, March 26th, Eastern Australian time (about 9am Friday morning, US Eastern time). We’ll draw the winner and two runners-up from the correct entries. The form requires your email address, but we do respect your privacy and we will not publish, sell, giveaway, or do anything annoying with your email address – we’ll use if only for notifying winners.

Thanks for playing along with us – good luck in the draw!

  1. Hmm, I think I’ll keep it for the moment thanks – I have a shortlist of potential recipients I have to choose from!

  2. Oh well, I didn’t win here, but I did win a copy of Border Watch on Phillipa Fioretti’s blog, so I’m happy…!
