Aussie conference

We're all home from another terrific get together at the Langham in Melbourne. What a blast these conferences are! If you've ever been to one I need say no more. If you haven't--GO.

I was thrilled that The Right Chord was voted Best Short Novel Cover --in a three way tie but I'm sure none of us mind that. There were 98 entries.

Two of the Canberra girls had very exciting news while there. Tracey O'Hara was contracted by Avon for her dark Vampire book 'Night's Cold Kiss' plus two sequels and Erika Hayes won the much coveted Valerie Parv Award. The prize is a year of mentoring by the very experienced, very generous and very talented writer Valerie Parv.

Next year we invade Brisbane and no-one can wait!
