RWA Conference and Photographs

Hello I'm back. :) I hope every one who attended the Romance Writers of Australia conference, Diamonds are forever, had a beneficial and enjoyable time as I did. I'd like to say thank you to the volunteers who made this event come together.

I met so many wonderful people within the publishing industry. I met up with members of RWA I've known for a while which was at least ninety percent of the people. I also met some new members which was lovely.

 I think it was one of the best conferences I have attended. I enjoyed the tutorials I undertook. I may do some posts about each one at a later date.

The costume, cocktail party was a hoot, and I danced, yes, I danced on those red stilettoed heels. lol... and...and..I didn't slip once. Phew. :)

I've just hit the send button and sent away the requests I received. I'm taking a deep breath and will get back to another manuscript as soon as possible. 

Here are some photographs as promised. I will put most of them up on my face book page.

Wonderful photos Suz.
It really was a great Conf. makes you appreciate all the hard work done by many busy hands.
Would you mind posting them in the HRW files. I'd love to re-post the group one and have one to keep.

Glad you had such a good time. Conferences are so good for the writer's soul.

Hi, Suzanne,
LOL I looked everywhere for those red shoes on Friday night! Sorry I only caught up with you on Sunday afternoon. Will try harder at the next conference.

How on earth did I miss you at the cocktail party, Suz? What an awesome Sandy you made!

It was a wonderful conference, wasn't it? Great location, fab hotel, excellent speakers and brimming with excited, talented people. The committee and all involved should be very proud of themselves.

lol Sandy. They were on my feet. Glad to have finally caught up. It was lovely to meet you. :)

Hi Cath,
How on earth did I miss you. Oh no. :) geeish..You must have been in disguise fairly well. I missed a few people. Shaking head, wondering where on earth you were. :)

I will have to find out what you dressed up in. Perhaps it will clarify a few things. :)
