Kate Thomson, Christina Courtenay (Pia), self and lovely-lady-whose-name-I-missed. Thanks to Jean Bull for the pic.
OK, I’ve finally found time to talk about the Romantic Novelists’ Association, 2012, at Newton Rigg Campus, Penrith. Despite the fact that my journey of 3hrs 50mins (according to AA Maps) took five hours in hurtling rain, we had a mainly dry weekend, with some sunshine!
As is usual at any RNA gathering, funky footwear was of paramount importance, especially at the gala dinner on Saturday evening. (Mine on the right.) (Sorry, I forgot to pack tights.)
Conference highlights for me were the talk on social media by Talli Roland, Pixar storylines from Julie Cohen and the analysis of women’s fiction from Kate Harrison.
The Romaniacs, plus a few friends.
Debbie White shows off her wax job. Nikki Goodman can’t look.
And the fabulous company of fabulous friends.
And the kitchen party hosted by the Romaniacs on Friday evening.
Great conference. Loved it.
Kitchen party! So sorry for those we kept awake.
