Live From The RNA Conference Again!

There were a few tired faces this morning over breakfast following last night’s Gala Dinner, where Kate Johnson won the Elizabeth Goudge prize for her first two thousand words of a novel.

Highlights of yesterday include the fabulous Julie Cohen’s workshop on Using Theme in your Novel, which I found hugely useful and came away reassured that I’m doing a few things right. It’s still super hot and the air conditioning is still broken but we are soldiering on. Today, I’ve attended Janet Gover’s session on Dos and Don’ts of TV and Radio Interviews (fascinating and v useful) and Freda Lightfoot’s very inspiring talk on her success as an indie author (she published her entire thirty-five book backlist and has had spectacular sales). I’ve chatted to Kate Harrison and Rowan Coleman, plus the lovely Miranda Dickinson and my conference vlog will be up on her website soon.

The conference is drawing to a close soon and I’m already looking forward to next year in Shropshire. I might have got over my hangover by then…
