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.....
