Outback Brides #2 Giveaway

Posted on June 4, 2019


Please contact me–maybe FB DM? or via the contact form here on website and I’ll grab your postal details.

Thank you to all who entered and for all the rain well wishes. Still hopeful! Nothing yet.



To celebrate the release of the last story in the Outback Brides of Wirralong series, I’m giving away a prize pack full of Aussie goodies necessities. Because everyone needs a little Aussie slang dictionary amirite?. The giveaway is open to all readers. Home grown, international, space station…



Do you have a favourite outback bride or hero? Let us know who it is. Do you have a fun rain emoji to use as a comment? Because we can definitely use the rain! Want an update on itty-bitty-kitty Midnight Obi from last year’s competition? He’s still itty. And still pretty. Quite naughty. I also need an Aussie bush name for the little wooden house cottage cabin I just bought. And by bought, I mean there’s still pest and building reports and all the paperwork re the sale still to do. If no other comments spring to mind, wish me luck!

  1. Emma SWIVEL


  2. Hi Kelly!!!
    Sending you lots of good rain vibes!!!??☔️☂️

  3. Helen Sibbritt

    Fabulous prize pack and I have this one climbing up the tbr pile :)

    Have Fun


  4. I enjoyed all the books. My favorite bride is Elsa and I loved Jack I’ve loved reading Australian romances for many years mostly old Harlequins by Margaret Way and Miranda Lee.
    Thanks for the chance to win a great prize package!

    • Good luck in the draw, Sue. Elsa and Jack are firm favourites of mine too!

  5. I’ve not read any of the Outback Brides of Wirralong as of yet, but winning a giveaway isn’t a bad way to find and start a series ;) I’m also unsure if the Australian outback and high country are considered mutually exclusive, but I’d have to say that my favorite hero is Jim Craig (The Man from Snowy River) !

    • That was a great film! I’d say high country Aus and Outback are quite different, even if often lumped together. Good luck in the draw.

  6. ?⛈? Loved reading about Emma story , this will surely be one of my fav stories this year, I am sure the rest of the series will be just as awesome, I will be adding them to my Kindle as soon as I can. You could call your cabin, The Nest… or My Heart is Home.

  7. Jacqueline

    Boy I wish I could send you some of the rain we are getting in the central US! Love your books!


    I love all Hero’s Thank you so much for the chance to win The gift is awesome!

  9. peggy clayton

    I don’t have a fav as every western book that I read I fall in love with another so I can’t play favorites! Thank you for running the contest and have a lot of fun with your cabin I would call it The KickBack as in the place that you can kick back and not have to worry about anything.

    • To kick back in the cabin would be very nice. Needs a little work before it reaches kick back stage though. I may have to pick up a paintbrush (or two). Good luck in the draw.

  10. Barbara

    Thanks …..have read the other books in this series and enjoyed them all….so looking forward to reading yours …..Barbara

  11. I’d say Emma and Liam are my faves! And, I’ll try to send all the rain from Indiana your way.?☔

  12. Julie A Edwards

    I have just finished Emma, as always Kelly delivers a wonderful heart warming read. Loved Emma and of course Liam.

  14. Lila young

  15. Dorothy Collins

    Kelly I enjoyed your last book enormously so much .I love reading books written by Aussie Authors . but been on a pension does make it a bit hard buying books as I have to watch my $ .

    • Dorothy, if you can wait, my publishers often discount mine down the track. Thanks for commenting and good luck in the draw.

  16. Leonie Newman

    Thanks so much for all these great reads Kelly!
    Would love to win a prize pack :)

  17. Jeanna Massman

    I love the cover! Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. Sandi Ramirez

    Emma’s book is my favorite of all the books. I remember reading a wee bit about the book before it came out and all I could think about is this book was going to pull us in all directions before our author allowed us to settle in and for the long run. Good luck on your new cabin and I would love to send you some of the extra rain we have been getting in Texas this Spring. Although in a few months we’ll probably need the water here ourselves. I know Emma is supposed to be the last book in this series but I hope it’s not. I love exploring the Outback this way.

    • I love that Emma’s story is your favorite! I really liked her when writing her. Thank you for the cabin well wishes and good luck in the draw!

    • I hope it doesn’t fall through too. A nervous wait! Good luck in the draw.

  67. Testing!

  68. Melissa Woods

    I absolutely love all the bride’s. They each have qualities that make Wirralong a place that anyone would love to live in and of course, get married at too.

    • Woot! The comments work. Thank you, Melissa for being the first to leave comment. It’s a lot of fun creating a story world from scratch. I love all the flavours the other authors bring to the place too.
