Swimming Anyone? #BookGiveaway

Getting all SIC (Sporting Inferiority Complex) as you watch those awesome Olympians compete at Rio? Yeah, me too. I am the personification of Non-Olympian. Which is why . . .

Booklympics. . . I’m over at Rachel’s Random Reads today, taking part in her fantabulous Booklympics!

(Yeah. Books. That’s more like it.)

Each day a different author is chatting about something sport-y or Olympics-y from one of their books. Today’s my day!

drowningSo if you want to have a laugh at my expense and find out just how (cough) brilliant I am at swimming, then come on over!

Oh, and did I mention there are BOOK GIVEAWAYS??? (And not just one?) 😉

A-Conference-ing We Will Go . . .

It’s been a busy couple of months for me. In August I went to the Romance Writers of Australia conference in Melbourne, Australia.

There was an author signing room at both conferences, so I spent the lead-up to both events neck-deep in designing giveaway items.

A sample of the promo items I gave readers.

There is soooooo much more to being a writer than the actual writing. I thought I knew that already, but every year the learning curve just keeps getting steeper! Turns out it helps to have some quick’n’dirty graphic design skills. And it’s handy to have research skills for finding the cheapest and best-quality promo gadgets.

Critical “To Do” List Before Conference

I’ve just realised with something close to horror that it’s now only one teensy month until the Romance Writers of Australia conference 2015. Which is very exciting (can’t wait!) but also rather nervewracking (won’t know many people) and a little bit panic-inducing (too much to do, too little time).

So . . . it’s time to write the critical To Do list. I’m nothing if not a list girl. Feel free to adapt for your own list-y purposes. :)
