Anna Campbell was chatting over at The Good, the Bad, the Unread (at least I hope it was, that pesky blog list has increased juuust a liiiitle bit lately) a few weeks back and was passing out some goodies. Now I can't say that she's a fellow Kiwi (and there seems to be a lot of Kiwi's writing in romance and erotic romance (me, Emily Veinglory, Shelly Munroe, Nalini Singh to name some)), but Aussies and Nz'ers have a tendency to gang together when we head overseas - maybe it's our combined 'furthest from the motherland' colonial roots or something. But to cut this long story short she picked me as a winner and parceled up some yummy favorites that are, of course, unobtainable in the USA in the most part.
Mmmmm! Cherry Ripes and Turkish delights - Anna, thank you!
Anna is an Australian author who's writing for Avon. Her newest book (and first I think, I double checked , it is) is causing as storm as it's released - I can't tell you much about it yet, because I had a brain fart when I went to BaM and was trying to find Anna Evans books (I was remembering that her nom de plume was in my family tree but I forgot it anyway (Evans was my ex's-surname, Campbell is my grandmothers maiden name, and I remembered the first...well 'cause it's so close to my own)). I blame it on my own edits that I've been processing the last week or so, they make my brain mushy.
Am I rambling enough? I'm feeling as sick as a dog - strep I think. Blogs are supposed to be all about rambling, stream of consciousness thoughts, aren't they... they are today!
Anyway, when I have a chance to get back to the bookstore, I'm going to post more about it. I make no promises about my reviewing abilities, or that it will be good - but the gal sent me Down Under Chocolate people... maybe this can be a new sideline - Down Under authors, keep me stocked in supplies from 'home' and I'll give a witty, interesting, fan gurl squee reviews -which might or might not be good- of your newest releases. I read any genre of romance... keep me in mind..wink wink!
Okay, back to feeling sorry for myself now. I have too many things to do this week, I need to be better, damn it!
