Australian Publishers Rock

It must be said - Australia publishers? THEY ARE AWESOME. They're crazy nice to us bloggers and they're always doing something insanely fun to help promote our favourite YA books. So I'm doing a little round-up of some events/promotions Aussie pubs have going at the moment that you should totally check out.

First off, fans of the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick, spread your wings and prepare for a sinful night. The Black Hand Ball is being held in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. You can meet Becca, join in on a Q&A, get your books signed, hang out with hot fallen angels, receive a special message from Patch, meet the editor of Dolly, dance the night away, eat yummy food, win yummy stuff and most importantly: have fun and hang out with fellow fans!! Seriously, how awesome does it sound? All the details can be found at:

It will be held in December and tickets are on sale now. So hurry and make sure you don't miss out!

They've also launched a new Facebook page called Read Me, Love Me, Share Me where you can find all the latest news on their new and upcoming YA novels. They'll be posting chapters, teasing us with cover previews, sharing reviews, hottest titles and all that stuff that makes us book lovers go weak at the knees.

To kick things off, they have a cool quiz you can take to find the book you'll most fall in love with. I got Silence. I did not sway the quiz. Why would you accuse me of such crimes? Hellooooooooo Patch *seductive purr* Ahem. What did you guys get??

The awesome folks at Harlequin Teen Australia have an amazing competition through the Girlfriend website. Not only can you win an iPad2 preloaded with the hottest HarlequinTeen titles, but the chance to interview Julie Kagawa (author of The Iron Fey series) which will be posted on their site! Don't tell me you wouldn't want to win. AU residents only.  To enter, head on over to Girlfriend. Then stalk their Facebook.

Between The Lines, Penguin Australia's corner of the web for all their deliciously tantalising YA books, want to know your opinion on the good and bad cliches of YA. So head on over to share your thoughts. Their posts are always fun and engaging or just downright teasing (reading the proof pages for Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood? YEAH. WE'RE NOT JEALOUS). You can also check out their Facebook Page.

And finally, Date A Book are ALWAYS holding amazing giveaways. This time, they're giving away the entire Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter in preparation for the 2012 release of Out of Sight, Out of Time! I've read the first book and can't wait to dive into the rest. They're so much fun! I definitely recommend reading. Check out their Facebook Page and the Enter The Giveaway!

    I got Birthmarked in the quiz! I've been meaning to read it for a while now. I'll just have to get to it sooner.
