Today we're going down under with the Summer Blog Blast Tour group!  It's the first installment of our One Shot World Tour, where we talk about books and authors from just one country (or two, when they're close in proximity like Australia and New Zealand) for just one day.  I'm not contributing my own content this time out, but I would like to bring to your attention the day's related posts.  (List modified from Colleen of Chasing Ray.)
