Australia and New Zealand

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi!

I would like to take this opportunity to profess my deep and undying love for the nations of Australia and New Zealand!

Okay, I have never actually been to Australia or New Zealand. But I have heard that they're both amazingly beautiful and that, upon arrival, every visitor receives a baby koala of his or her very own to take home as a souvenir. And I have also heard that this fall, visitors and residents alike will be able to read my new novel Drink, Slay, Love while they cuddle their complimentary koalas!!!

That's right! I am thrilled to report that the Australia/New Zealand rights to Drink, Slay, Love have been purchased by publisher Allen & Unwin, which means the book will be coming out in Australia and New Zealand around the same time it comes out in the US and Canada! I believe the AUS/NZ edition will have the same cover as the North American edition and will be released sometime in October 2011.

Sadly, reports about the complimentary koalas have yet to be confirmed.....

That's awesome. Good for Allen and Unwin - I've always liked them.

Unfortunately your very own cuddly koala generally comes with a 'made in China' tag.

Excellent news. However, since there is a healthy rivalry between Australia and New Zealand, I wouldn't be lumping oi, oi, oi and Koalas in with NZ; they're liable to get their feelings hurt. It's Kiwis and the All Black for their kind.

That said, you've got to go. They will no doubt adore your book, but they will absoluetly love you. A Yank author on their soil. SWEET!
