RNA Conference

It's hard to believe that this time last week I was in Penrith for the Romantic Novelists' Association annual conference. The weather was kind to us and the sun shone for most of the weekend. This was the view from my room on the day I arrived and the sky looked as blue nearly all weekend.

On friday I had the all important meeting with editors from Mills and Boon and was pleased they liked my first chapter. On Saturday the day was started with a talk from Talli Roland about on-line marketing for writers which was extremely useful. Mills and Boon editors also did a talk, again really useful. The weekend passed so fast and so much was packed in. Not to mention the Gala dinner on Saturday evening where we all get dressed up and shoes to wow are a must. See the RNA blog for shoes.

Sadly Sunday arrived and I had a train to catch, for the long journey home. I did have to play the game of 'how many can fit in a carriage' on the way home and wondered briefly if I was on the London underground at rush hour instead of a rural line into Wales.

Last week has been total madness on the farm, due to the sun finally putting in an appearance. All my good intentions of writing, writing, writing had to be put aside, but as the silage harvest catches up I hope to hide away and write - lots!


  1. Sounds like you had a brilliant weekend away :) Well done with your meeting with HMB - did they request a partial?

    1. Yes, it's written, but I want to give myself a bit time, take in their comments and then look at it again before sending it in.
