Heartland Review Fun

A wonderful review of my latest rural romance Heartland on the Australian Romance Readers Association blog.

“I’m missing the people in this story. I didn’t realise until I read the last page and shut the book. When I walked away, from it, I realised I felt bereft.” Rosalie for the ARRA blog.

Isn’t that a lovely thing to say? I’m so delighted.

If you’re an ARRA member, leave a comment and you’ll go into the draw to win a copy of Heartland. Giveaway closes 17th July.

You can read more about Heartland, including an excerpt and the story of how the book came into being, on my website.

Romance Writers of Australia Conference, August 16th-18th 2013

It’s only 6 weeks until the RWA Conference in Fremantle, W.A. and I can’t wait. This is THE event of the year for romance authors, published and aspiring. A chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones, plus learn more about our business and craft. There are also opportunities for authors to pitch their work to leading Australian and international editors and agents.

I have a great deal to thank the RWA for and can’t recommend the organisation and its conference highly enough.

For more information on the RWA and the conference, visit the website.

Guess who’s in the Australian Women’s Weekly…

My phone started going mad this morning with texts from friends telling me about my, and fellow authors Rachael Treasure, Nicole Alexander and Fleur McDonald’s, LUST IN THE DUST spread in the newly-minted March issue of the Australian Women’s Weekly. I knew it was coming. After all, I’d had a ball doing the photo ???????????????????????????????shoot (thanks, Katie and Alana) and the interview (thanks, Kerry), but it still came as a bit of a shock because I wasn’t expecting the magazine to hit the stands until later in the week.

As thrilling as the AWW’s release is, I have lots of chores to catch up on before this weekend’s Australian Romance Readers Convention in Brisbane, not to mention a book to write, so I decided to spend the morning working and ignoring it all. Yeah, like that was going to happen. By 11-15am, after what felt like a hundred text messages, emails and phone calls, I couldn’t stand it and had to head out to buy my own copy.

Actually, I bought two. Cos, you know, I might wear the first one out or something.

So here I am, in the Australian Women’s Weekly, looking, according to my girlfriend’s husband, a bit Mona Lisa. Hmm, not sure if that’s good or bad but I wouldn’t mind Mona’s popularity!

???????????????????????????????

By the way, in case you’re wondering about all this lusty fantasy, I LOVE my darling other half, Jim.

I just tend to get a bit obsessed by my fictional heroes…
