RWNZ Conference

I've made it home - a good bit heavier, totally exhausted but motivated.....

The highlights were:

1. Meeting Nalini Singh, who is New Zealand's hottest author. I've been reliably informed her latest book Slave to Sensation totally rocks, and I can't wait to read it. When one of the conference speakers couldn't make it Nalini stepped in and did a fab workshop on writing paranormal. Here we are together:

2. The workshop with Debbie Macomber which was about building your own community. Do you know, she has 50,000 fans on her email list and a staff of three to help her? WOW!!! I picked up loads of tips for promotion.

3. Partying (I mean networking!). Here are some pics:

My roomies, Emily Gee (totally fab author, watch out for her fantasy being pubbed next year by Solaris) and Ellie Huse, who won the prestigious Founders Award for service to the Association - yay, Ellie you so deserved this award for all your hard work.

Deb Challinor, New Zealand's best selling author (and my friend, who always makes me laugh she's so funny - despite looking so serious in this pic) with Aaron. Check out the pink necklace and ear-rings borrowed for the Tickled Pink Cocktail Party.

The girls from Blenheim - looking terribly dignified, but remember this was before the Awards Dinner!!!!

4. Meeting the agent Erin Cartwright Niumata. I wouldn't swap my agent Sara Crowe for the world. But if I was agent hunting at the moment, Erin would definitely be an agent I'd love to have.

Great pics Sara. It's good to put faces to names!
Sounds like you had loads of fun! Now back to the grindstone! ;)
Oh wow, Sara. It sounds like you had loads of fun and can I just say I'm very impressed that you remembered to take photos! Can't wait to hear all the gossip!
I'm going to post some more pics later, for some reason blogger wouldn't upload anymore than these four!
Looks like fun times! I'm glad you had a good time.
