Romance Writers of Australia Annual Conference

This will be our 19th Conference. Woo Hoo!

A little over a month until our conference. The clock is ticking fast. I can't believe it's almost here.
This years Romance Writers of Australia's conference is at the Crown Plaza, Coogee Beach. It's on the 13th-15th of August and it will be mighty cold. The theme is fantasy island. Usually I have an outfit organised by now for the Friday night Cocktail Party, but I have no idea of what I'm dressing up in-I haven't given it a thought until now. I couldn't imagine getting around in my bikini, or sarong to keep the chill factor away. Any ideas out there? lol

Editors taking pitches are: Diane Moggy - Harlequin, Jennifer Schober - Spencerhill, Sophie Hamely - Aus agent, Ali Watts - Penguin, and
Bernadette Foley from Hachette. Apparently there are going to be lots of other agents and editors who aren't taking pitches though.

It's also a chance to catch up with all those writers and authors from around Australia that I only see once a year. Although we communicate regularly it's great to have a drink and live chat. Waving madly at everyone.

Okay, lot's of writing to do between now and then. I hope the magic fairy visits and sprinkles a hell of a lot of word dust over me. It's either that or type faster, I've got a lot to do.

Hi Suzanne
I'm looking forward to the conference as well. It will be my first. I'm dressing up in fairy wings, huge ones and glitter etc. It should be fun. Hope to catch up with you.
