The inaugural Australian Romance Readers Conference was held over the weekend, and I have to say, it was a blast. Given it was the first one, no one was really sure what to expect (not even the organisers), but having been to a number of RT’s now, I was expecting something similar and I wasn’t wrong. It was much smaller (several hundred rather than several thousand), but that only added to the atmosphere. There was chatting, good food, great panels, lots of laughter and more good food (except for the Saturday night dinner which was cold–not sure what the chef was doing, but he needed to be slapped for serving it like that). Oh, and me getting locked in the car park after the dinner didn’t help my mood that night. lol. I didn’t actually remember to take my camera, but I’m hoping to swipe some photos from fellow attendees, so stay tuned for those.
Writing news–well, there’s not a whole lot. I got half way through the Mercy edits, and decided the new start I’d intended to write didn’t actually fit, so I wrote another one. But of course, that meant I had to go back and re-edit everything, so I’m now way behind again. Luckily, my lovely editor has given me an extra week or so.
I also heard from the lovely lady in charge of publicity at Bantam this morning, and I have to say, there’s some exciting things happening this year in regards to Riley. I can’t tell you any more just yet, but I will as soon as it’s official. 🙂 Oh, and Deadly Desire has received a reader review over on Amazon, so if you’re feeling desperate to find out what the book is about, you can wander over there. Or you can wait a day or so, by which time I might have motivated my lazy self, and have posted the first chapter. 🙂
