It’s that time of year again – when those of us going to the Romance Writers of Australia conference start the countdown in earnest – usually with a discussion about cocktail party costumes. This year is the 24th conference – and my 5th.

It’s a chance to catch up with fellow authors – many of whom have become good friends over the years – and meet many new ones. It’s a chance to learn new skills and to pitch your work to top publishers and agents. A chance to network and to hang with other people who also hear voices in their head. 🙂

It’s three days of taking in so much information your brain hurts, letting your hair down and socialising, and generally eating far more than you need to 🙂

I always come back incredibly inspired from conference. And also exhausted! Not only from the packed schedule, but also from talking to so many people!

This year is in Melbourne from the 21st – 23rd August. And I am already so excited about it! At this time in 4 weeks, I’ll be frantically packing, rehearsing my pitch and doing all the last minute preparation ready for my flight the next day!

I cannot wait!
