Some news... Hello, New Zealand!


Really excited to share my next project that I’ve been working on; a new book in my Hello…! series, and for the first time, we’re going international! Say Hello, New Zealand!

After the wonderful success of Hello, Australia!, I wanted to follow it up with a buddy book, a good companion that focussed on the cities and landscapes like I did through Australia, and New Zealand seemed like the perfect candidate! I’d been planning for this title for quite a while (just waiting for my publishers to give the ok!) and was so fortunate to take a research trip to New Zealand last September for a road trip around the North Island, gathering inspiration and stockpiling photos, ideas and colour palettes for the new book. For a country that’s just a short 3 hour flight away from Sydney, New Zealand feels like a whole other world, and I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to create something that I hope all New Zealanders feel does their beautiful home justice!

From the North Island to the South, and lots of stops in between, I’m so looking forward to sharing Hello, New Zealand! with you — arriving in bookstores this September! I’ll be back with the cover reveal soon, but if you’re wanting a sneak peek you can pre-order now from Booktopia (in Australia) and the Book Depository (who offer free worldwide shipping). I’ll also be starting to put everything New Zealand related under the hashtag #HelloNZbyMeganMcKean on Instagram.
