I’m not sure how these are gonna look because I’m not the greatest photographer in the world & this fancy new camera had far to many settings to choose from! Regardless, I had so much fun at the Romance Writers of Australia Hot August Nights conference in Brisbane, that I simply had to share some photos.
I met an amazing bunch of people — they were all so very welcoming, & didn’t diss me about my Kiwi accent, either! And I felt incredibly privileged to have been called up on stage on Saturday morning to receive my First Sale ribbon from the lovely Bron Jameson, RomAus Pubbed Author Liaison. It was totally unexpected, but a moment I’ll remember forever.
First up photowise, is the RomAus eList dinner — a fantastic pre-conference ice-breaker for a rather nervous Kiwi!
Next up: the Romance Writers of Australia Arabian Nights Cocktail Party. (Who knew I could have hauled those sparkly harem pants out from the back of my wardrobe and fit right in?)
Then some general RomAus conference photos — check out the gorgeous main workshop room at the Sebel Citigate. And finally, the piece de resistance, the Awards Dinner, where RomAus members are publicly celebrated for their achievements over the past year.
So without further ado, here’s a bunch of photos for your viewing pleasure! (And BTW, please click on each individual photo to see the full view.)
