(For more about me, see below, where I write about myself in the third person!)
As an Australian mother/writer/blogger, I have plenty to say on the subject of books. From parenting books, such as Elizabeth Pantley’s The No Cry Sleep Solution and the Sears’ The Baby Book, to kids books, from the Zac Power books (which sorry but I hate and refuse to link to), to the Lionboy* and the How to Train Your Dragon** series’ and Jenni Overend and Julie Vivas’s delightful Hello Baby, to books about books and books about writing.
I won’t only be writing only about Australian books and writers, but I will be linking to them mainly on Australian book sites (like Fishpond.com.au or Booktopia.com.au). And, I do plan to try to bring in Australian writers as much as possible.
I will also accept guest reviews, even if I don’t agree with them, but I will clearly label them as such.
*That link is to the audio book version of LionBoy by the way, because it’s read by Simon Jones and is simply awesome.
** And that link is also to the audible version, because it’s read by David Tennant – well, more like verbally acted really – and is even more awesome!
