Well the RWAus 2009 conference was a blast. Fantastic to catch up with so many people I know from online, including the Bootcampers. It was non- stop since the moment I met up with them at the airport to when I got home.
So many highlights:
- meeting online buddies
- attending Cocktail party & Awards dinner
- getting requests for partials (yeeha!)
- SARA member Trish Morey winning the Short - Sexy R*BY award & the Honourary Lifetime Membership award.... yay Trish
- SARA member Tess LeSue for winning the STALI and the Anna Campbell Award (yay)
- Fantastic workshop by Anne Gracie & Mary Jo Putney - nuggets of great info
- All workshops and panels attended:
- Bronwyn Parry and Bernedette Foley with publisher/author relationship;
- Worldbuilding with Rowena Cory Daniells;
- Blogs & Blogging;
- Spotlight on The Knight Agency,
- Trish Morey's Great Beginnings, Big Bang Endings & High Stakes in Between;
- Paranormal chat
I had to miss a couple of sessions due to my pitches, but between nerves and then joy at requested material, I think that is a-okay to do (*wink*). So it will be busy here for abit. The short, snappy posts may have to continue. I shall see.
Here's a snapshot taken by Monique Wood (thanks Mon) of us at the Arabian Nights Cocktail Party. More photos to follow in time....
