Author Q&AJosephine Moon reveals herself as something of a foodie in our author Q&A. Not only does food play a central role in all of her novels but at home as well, where she lives on acreage with her family and horses. She also gives us a sneak peak into her next novel, to be published in March, which is themed around coffee (for coffee addicts everywhere!), and shares some of her mother's tips on how to make the perfect potato salad. We'll be incorporating these tips into our Christmas repertoire this year for sure.
Three Gold CoinsThanks to publisher Allen & Unwin, Word of Mouth TV has three prizes to giveaway for our very al-fresco Italian Josephine Moon episode. The first prize is a bumper giveaway. It includes four of Josephine's novels: Three Gold Coins, The Tea Chest, The Chocolate Promise and The Beekeeper's Secret; and a beautiful hard-back edition of celebrity chef extraordinaire Matt Moran's Australian Food. This is a gorgeous giveaway with a very distinctive Australian flavour.
Word of Mouth TV dined a-la Tuscany with Josephine Moon, author of the beautiful romance Three Gold Coins, and served a delicious Tuscan white bean soup. Set between Brisbane and a goat farm in Italy with a sweet and sexy romantic hero, Three Gold Coins covered a huge amount of territory. And the ambience was divine, sitting outside in Kate's garden on a balmy Autumn day. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Word of Mouth TV had such a great time interviewing authors at Writing NSW's Kids & Young Adult Festival. The events were packed but we still managed to persuade authors Jaclyn Moriarty, Garth Nix and Belinda Murrell to spare some time to talk about their latest books and share their book and food tips. Everyone else must have had a great time too, because the event trended fourth on Twitter for the day, no mean feat.
