Coming to Romantic Times?

Are you going to the Romantic Times Convention in Las Vegas?

If so, I hope you can drop by and say hi. It’s my first RT convention and I’m really looking forward to it. 

I’m involved in two panels — on Wednesday morning, it’s Meet the Authors from Downunder with my friends Keri Arthur, Nalini Singh and Khloe Wren.

And if you’re one of the first 100 people to arrive, you’ll get one of these little fellows in your goodie bag. And possibly a tim-tam.

Then on Thursday afternoon at 1.30, I’m on a Historical Hero panel with Mary Jo Putney and Patricia Rice and we’re talking about Rakes, Rogues and Warrior Poets, and how to create delicious heroes.
What’s a warrior poet? you ask.
You’ll just have to come along and find out.

ARRA Awards

I’ve been smacked by a friend for forgetting to put this news up here on my blog. My excuse is that I was traveling, but I’m home now, and so . . . 

I went to the ARRA (Australian Romance Readers Association) Awards night in Sydney a couple of weeks ago, and was thrilled to receive four awards:

Strongest heroine (Jane Chance in The Spring Bride)

Favorite Historical (The Spring Bride)

Favorite Continuing Romance Series (The Chance Sisters)

and Favorite Australian Romance Author.

So here’s a picture of me,  grinning like a loon on the night.

It was a huge honor — these awards are voted on by readers — and the full list of finalists is here.

So it was a very exciting night for me and topped off a wonderful day where I had high tea with a bunch of lovely readers, and then the dinner.

Thank you to ARRA for organizing these awards and events. Congratulations to all the other winners and finalists — the  list of winners is here


I'm going to Romantic Times

I’m getting a gorgeous new website, and as part of that process, I’m moving to another blogging platform, so it will all be coordinated. This will be one of the last posts from this site, but I wanted to get this news in before we move.

I’m going to the RT convention in Las Vegas April. I’m so excited — it will be my first RT convention.

I’m going to be on a “Meet the Authors from Downunder” reader event with my friends Keri Arthur,  Nalini Singh, and Khloe Wren. They’re all paranormal writers (and fabulous ones, too) so I’ll be the odd one out, the lone historical writer in the group. That’s on the Wednesday.

And on the Thursday afternoon, I’m going to be on a hero panel “Rakes Rogues and Warrior Poets” with my friends and fellow historical romance writers, Mary Jo Putney and Patricia Rice.

I’ll be signing with Berkley, too. The full program is here.

I’m really looking forward to catching up with author friends, readers and meeting new people.

Hope to see you there.
