Cruisin’ with RWA

With the Gold Coast Conference just weeks away, Clint has been out scouting for posts on past and present conferences. Have you got a pleasant memory to share from a Romance Writer’s Conference? Send it to us at


Claytons Conference 2012

Registrations for Claytons are now open.

We all know the Diamonds Are Forever Conference is going to be brilliant, but not all of us can make it to the sunny Gold Coast. Enter the annual Claytons Conference, the conference you have when you’re not having a conference (to paraphrase an old but famous soft drink slogan).

Claytons 2012 is online, interactive and impossible to ignore. It’s good fun, motivational and informative. It is open to all Romance Writers of Australia members and it’s free.

Please visit the Claytons page on the RWAustralia website for more information (including the program) and to register.

If you have any questions, you can contact Julia and Jenny at ClaytonsConf12 [at] gmail [dot] com.

We look forward to “seeing” you there!

July 20 – This week on Friday Feast:

This week on Friday Feast I’m very excited to host Australian suspense author Jaye Ford. Jaye’s book, BEYOND FEAR, was the highest selling debut crime novel in Australia in 2011. Her second novel, SCARED YET? released in March to more amazing reviews.

With winter in full swing, Jaye reveals her cold weather obsession with soup and shares a favourite that can be easily whipped up from the contents of your pantry and freezer. Definitely one for writers – just like her page-turner books!

Enrico’s quote of the week

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by.  How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?  For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone.  That is where the writer scores over his fellows:  he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.  ~Vita Sackville-West

Have a great week!

Regards Juanita
