The Neglect Continues

What can I say, despite how much I enjoy it, in 2013, blogging has definitely taken a backseat!
Its embarrassing how many half-written blog posts are sitting on my computer, waiting to be uploaded.
So, what am I doing with myself at the moment? Well, I'm putting the finishing touches on a romantic suspense, which my lovely agent, Paula, will then start shopping. While I don't have a title for the book, you can read a bit of it here, on my WIP excerpts page.
In other news, I'll be appearing at the Bendigo Writers Festival on the weekend of the 9th - 11th of August. In my first session, I'll be teaming up with Kate Forsyth to talk about writing fantasy, which I'm really looking forward to. My second session is a workshop, which is titled Speed Writing, where I'll be running some writing exercises to get a writer's brain working, and talking about ways to increase word count output in a shorter amount of time.
The weekend after that is the Romance Writers Australia conference, and while I couldn't make it to Perth, I have signed up to do the equally amazing online conference RWA offers over the same weekend. Oh, and on Monday the 19th of August, I'm off to see Julia Quinn in Melbourne. Excitement much? She's only one of the reasons I became an author!
So that's me, busy, busy, busy. Speaking of which, I really need to get back to editing!
