Too LOUD for you? Too much champagne last night? Pour another coffee and come along on a journey with me. I’d love for you to tell me what you think of when you think about Australia. What is the first picture that pops into your mind? Before I moved to the US, I always pictured San Francisco, in particular The Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood, and The Grand Canyon, whereas now, the place that says America to me is New York City.
Today I’m doing two separate giveaways. A gift of one download of my newest book, Gone Tropical, for Kindle Readers:
He was hired to protect her, but can she save him from his past?
Armed with an inside tip, Amy Helm arrives in Australia determined to catch her thieving ex-husband. After he absconded with five million dollars from her father’s business, the FBI thinks the trail has gone cold. But who better to catch him than the psychologist who knew him intimately?
LAPD-turned-solitary-P.I. Jake Turner is on Amy’s tail. Hired by her estranged father to find the money and keep her out of harm, he enlists the help of an old Aussie friend. Amy knows their skills are valuable, but her hackles go up when Jake orders her to stay in Sydney.
Playing a dangerous game of catch-me-if-you-can deep in the Australian rainforest leads them into a cyclone, a fake marriage, a drug cartel, and maybe, a whole new life. It’s a dizzying ride of fear and romance, and one Amy won’t soon give up.
**If you don’t have a Kindle reader, I have Mobi, eBook, or PDF formats.
The second giveaway is for two cute items from Australia, and no they are not real live Joeys:
A boxing kangaroo pen, you can work the boxing arms with one click, remove the cap to write and it will light up. Sure to box away negative thoughts, fight off a snoozing muse, or entertain a youngster. (See, I should have been a used car salesperson.)
And, a fuzzy bookmark where the head of a koala protrudes above the book page, making for a cheeky little devil…ah, I mean cute koala.
****You may enter both giveaways or one, or none. It’s your choice. Just tell me in the comment section. If you win the Kindle download, it may be sent to anyone you designate. Winners will be chosen on Saturday, January 4, 2014.
****And the winners are:
