I have some news. This month is my six month book-iversary, six months since Airmail was published. I'm so grateful for your support and encouragement during this time, so today I want to give something back to say thank you. I've decided to celebrate with a veritable giveaway bonanza, including a signed copy of Airmail as well as some wonderful paraphernalia collected in France and Italy, and of course mementos from my home country of Australia.

An antique postcard from Paris 4. A piece of handmade lace from Venice 5. A wonderful little photography and art book by Riceboy Sleeps 6. Two handmade, hand painted, ceramic bowls 7. Flowers from my garden 8. A square of vintage yellow floral fabric 9. A box of deliciousness from chocolatier Haigh’s, which first opened down the road from me in 1905

Extra information: This competition is open internationally, and ends on Monday 31 October at midnight (Adelaide, Australia time). Please remember to email me if you don't leave a link in your comment, so that I can contact you if you win.
Thank you! I am continually honoured and humbled that people are reading my little book, and taking the time to tell me when they liked it. When I receive emails or comments from people who have read Airmail, they absolutely make my day. No, my week! It still blows my mind that total strangers from the other side of the world are entering my stories. If that is you, THANK YOU, friend.
Here's a link to some of those lovely comments, in case you're interested.
