The mission of this tour is to help promote Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar and Six Impossible Things by Fiona Wood. Both are contemporary Australian novels currently unavailable in the U.S. or internationally. As I happened to acquire them out of the kindness of Aussie blogger Jess of The Tales Compendium I would like to give back by giving readers the opportunity to read high quality Aussie books that are not readily available to them as well as help the books get the necessary exposure that will (I hope) eventually lead to their publication worldwide.
This one-time tour consists of two books which will be sent from one participant to the next. Participants are responsible for shipping costs and books MUST be sent via the United States Postal Service with delivery confirmation. The last tour participant will ship the book back to me.
-Participants must be U.S. residents.
-Participants may sign up for one or both books but the tours may be limited and schedules will be determined by interest.
-Participants have ONE WEEK (7 days) from receipt of the book to read it before he/she is required to mail the book to the next participant.
-All books received MUST be reviewed and posted on either on your blog if you have one or on Goodreads, Shelfari, etc. and linked to the Mr. Linky on this post (to come).
-Participants are responsible to cover shipping costs and all books MUST be sent via the United States Postal Service with delivery confirmation. The delivery confirmation number MUST be emailed to me for tracking purposes.
-When a book is received, participants MUST email me a notification. The mailing address for the next participant on the tour will then be provided.
-If at any time you need to drop out of the tour please notify me ASAP.
-Participants failing to comply with the above rules will immediately be removed from the tour.
-If there are any questions or concerns please email them to me at email@example.com.
A Note: As Raw Blue and Six Impossible Things are from my personal library and are not easily replaced it goes without saying to treat the books as you would like your own books to be treated. Please be respectful of the books, the missions, and the rules.
Also, this is totally a coincidence but it also happens to be Aussie August, a month-long celebration of mostly Australian young adult literature organized by Lux at Paperback Heart. Each day of August there’s either a giveaway, author interview, or Aussie book review so go check out the schedule. It looks like I just missed the interview with Juliet Marillier at Missy’s Mess on the 6th so I’ll be heading over there as soon as possible. Also, be sure not to miss Irresistible Read‘s giveaway of Raw Blue on August 29.
-Sign ups will run through August 31 with tour schedules announced in September.
