We're on to the next project, The One Shot World Tours, which starts today with the Best Reads with Vegemite! -- featuring reviews and interviews with Australian and a few New Zealand authors.

Thank-you for the links - I would have missed these books by some of my favourite Aussie authors otherwise!
