And the Winner is…

At last! I have a moment to stop and smell the roses.

It’s been such a crazy few weeks but I’m finally back from my tour and settled into normal life again… well, more or less. LOL! Lots of things still to catch up on – particularly the writing!

I did have such a wonderful time on “The Maxwell Sisters” Book tour that spanned half of Feb and March though. I spent time in N.S.W, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and of course, Western Australia, talking to readers, signing books and generally enjoying the sights and sounds.

I was very disappointed to have to cancel my talks in Bundaberg and the Sunshine Coast when Cyclone Marcia swept into Queensland. However, at least it was in theme! Only a cyclone could stop a “Loretta Hill” book tour, right? ☺ Read, “The Girl in the Hard Hat,” if you don’t get the joke.

While I enjoyed all the cities and rural towns I visited, I would have to say the highlight was the Barossa. It was just so pretty. I took heaps of photos, some of which I have included with this post.

My audience there was so disappointed to learn that I had not set “The Maxwell Sisters” in the Barossa but in the Margaret River wine region. However, they shortly forgave me when I said, my winemaker, Adam, was from the Barossa. He brings a cheeky mischievous flavour to the book that the novel just couldn’t do without. Lucky save!

If you would like to see more photos from the rest of my tour, please do visit me on facebook where I have posted them all.

However, moving right along to the main focus of this post. I need to announce the winner of “The Maxwell Sisters” book giveaway that was offered on my blog tour with all my favourite authors earlier this year.

The winner is…

Delores Bebbington …..who posted on Catherine Hein’s Maxwell Sisters Friday Feast Blog on the 30th Jan. Congratulations!
