Thursday, 30 August 2007

come see me!

In two weeks time I will be co-hosting a Romance Author Panel entitled "Love for Sale" at the Victorian Writers Centre with the fantabulous, generous, genius, award winning Anne Gracie. It will be interactive with time for lots of questions from anyone out there who's wanted to write a romance novel with the hopes of selling it to a publisher.

And if you haven't read an Anne Gracie novel, do yourself a huuuuge favour and do so. They are gems, keepers, tear jerkers, warm and fuzzy bunches of pure yumminess. Start with The Perfect Rake and read the whole Perfect series, and then dive into her backlist, and then wait with the rest of us for her new series beginning in 2008.

If you want to come along and play, or if you just want to giggle at me as I waddle onto stage, the details are at the botom of this post! Until then here's what the Victorian Writers Centre has to say about the evening:

Seminar: Romance writers Ally Blake and Anne Gracie will talk about their success in this ever-growing niche of genre writing.

This event will benefit the budding romance writer and reader no matter what their style.
