A Virtual Romance Festival for Readers and Writers - 7-8 June...

This week it's back to work. I'll be resuming the novella edit, as well as starting on with a few other projects.

I've also signed up to next weekend's first virtual Romance Festival, taking place online - you do need to register, but it's FREE. Register on the Eventbrite page here.

Once you've signed up you can find out more, but just in case you're not convinced I'll give you a little more information. :D

This virtual festival is for both aspiring writers and those already established, and readers too; a way we can all celebrate romance, discover new authors, and books, and getting them to the readers.

Authors from Harper Impulse, Mills and Boon, Avon- both UK and US, and Piatkus, Carina and independents will be taking part- something for everyone...

Saturday is the author spotlight;  Sunday the reader spotlight.

For writers it will be a day to develop your skills. I'm looking forward to the book covers and elements on marketing and PR, to name a few.

Readers, there'll be give-aways, insights into writers and their books, and I quote, "Hot men!" :D

No doubt by the time next weekend arrives there will have been a lot more added, as this virtual festival is being supported by the RNA, various romance publishers not already mentioned, and numerous authors; a few names I certainly recognise: Jill Mansell, Carole Matthews, Eloisa James, Phillipa Ashley, Jessica Blair, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

And there's lots more.

Whether we're writers of romance, or just readers of romance, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

If you want to find out more then have a look at their social media links.

I've registered. Not sure how much time I'll be online over the weekend, but maybe we can access some of it later.

Sounds great fun - think I'll register and, like Patsy, I'll get to what I can! Thanks for the reminder, Carol.

Enjoy your festival, Carol. I shall be frantically trying to get this edit done before I visit my UK family on 14th!

You'll be able to catch up on most of the writers day sessions, Patsy- their page on Facebook, and on Twitter using the #Romance14 - I couldn't keep up on Twitter, so spent most of the afternoon on Facebook.

I think it's a great idea, and after the first day yesterday, Rosemary, it looks like it will be judged a success. :)

Good luck with the edits, Lizy, and safe trouble-free travels. :)
