I put all the names in a glass bowl, and asked the DH to draw out the winner:
The name he drew out was:
Karlene Blakemore-Mowle! Congratulations, Karlene! I’ll send you an email to get your posting address.
Thank you to everybody who entered the contest, and to all those who made comments about the first chapter. It’s wonderful to hear from readers that they’ve enjoyed the story.
Thanks also to Louisa, the publicity manager at Hachette Australia, for donating the copy of the book.
On another note, I will be putting up some more photos from my recent Pilliga trip, but I’ve been unwell for a couple of days (just gastric, nothing deadly). I will try to post some more tomorrow.
