This post was going to be titled Sunday morning reads, but well that horse bolted. No, despite not having done to much these holidays they have flown by astonishingly fast.
Well I did start a second manuscript but it seems no matter how hard I have tried, my reading and blogging has dropped off. Below are some links that I should have posted earlier:
GenreCon is go
Co-ordinated by Peter M Ball and backed by the Australian Writers Marketplace -
GenreCon is a three-day convention for Australian fans and professionals working within the fields of romance, mystery, science fiction, crime, fantasy, horror, thrillers, and more.
One part party, one part celebration, one part professional development: GenreCon is the place to be if you’re an aspiring or established writer with a penchant for the types of fiction that get relegated to their own corner of the bookstore.
It will run from the 2nd to 4th of November in Parramatta, NSW.
International guests include best-selling fantasy author Joe Abercrombie, literary agent Ginger Clark of Curtis Brown New York, and co-founder of romance review site Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, Sarah Wendell.
