Monday Musings on Australian Literature Special : Book Giveaway Winners

September 2, 2013

Two weeks ago I announced my first blog giveaway, courtesy the generosity of Irma Gold, editor of the Canberra Centenary anthology, The invisible thread. Irma offered me two copies to give away, both signed by most of the authors represented in the anthology – and who are still living of course! Entries closed midnight, AEST, on 31August.

So, here are the winners, chosen using an Internet-based random number generator:

  • AUSTRALIAN ADDRESS winner is Rosemary, the lucky last Aussie to throw her hat in the ring; and the
  • OVERSEAS ADDRESS winner is Glenda in Switzerland

Congratulations Rosemary and Glenda … And commiserations to all you others. Thankyou though for showing interest. It’s a shame everyone can’t be winners.

Here is the deal, Rosemary and Glenda. You need to email me, at wg1775[at]gmail.com, your postal address by midnight AEST 7 September, 2013. I will redraw a new winner if I don’t have your address by that deadline.

Once again, a big thank you to Irma for offering this giveaway. … it is a real booklover’s treat.

Oh, and the book can be bought from Fishpond so all is not completely lost.

    This comment is little divergent from your exciting giveaways… but, just as thrilling to me. I’d just want to let you know, WG, that in a few days I’ll be heading to Toronto for TIFF, yes, and one of the films I’ll be watching is the world premiere of The Railway Man by Australian director Jonathan Teplitzky and Aussie actress Nicole Kidman. Of course, the main attraction, for me, is its male star, Colin Firth. He’ll be walking the red carpet at TIFF, but, don’t think I can even get close to there. 😉
