Today I’m blogging over at The Romaniacs about writing from female or male point of view, in particular those *hot* scenes.
Do we really know what a man thinks?
More to the point, do we really want to know or are we happy to imagine?
Pop over – would be interested to hear your thoughts on this.
I had a great weekend at the Romantic Novelists’ Association annual conference,this year held in Sheffield.
Mandy Baggot was my co-driver for our road trip
Move over Thelma and Louise, here come Velma and Daphne
It was lovely to meet up with some of the Romaniacs
(L-R) Vanessa Savage, Me, Debbie White, Laura E James, Celia J Anderson
Fab goody bags awaited us all!
I attended some great presentations
Julie Cohen‘s talk on ‘theme’ being one of them
Sue Moorcroft’s talk on ‘hot’ scenes
Fiona Harper gave a fantastic talk on structure in a novel.
Talks from the publishing industry were very interesting too
A fabulous gala dinner, which involved a lot of laughter and possibly a drop of wine!
But plenty of time to relax and chat
My 6.30 morning strolls with Mandy Baggot took us via the duck pond
It was a fantastic weekend – thank you Sheffield University and the RNA.
Just a quick round up of where I’m blogging/posting today and anything else that might be of interest
Today I’m over at the Love A Happy Ending Lifestyle Magazine talking about Clothkits and sewing.
There are lots of great articles at the Loveahappyending Lifestyle magazine ranging from travel and gardening to chickens and traditions, with everything in between. Well worth a look.
I have a mini blog at Love A Happy Ending Bookshelf where I’ve popped a post up.
I received a lovely review of my book, United State of Love, from BestChickLit yesterday.
I’ve sent a couple of books off to The Bookstop Cafe in Lincoln who are opening their book/coffee shop this weekend and are keen to support Indie authors. Good luck to them!
At The Romaniacs‘ blog, we have Pauline Barclay talking about her latest novel, Storm Clouds Gathering.
And this evening I’m off to a talk from Chichester Copywriter about publishing.
Have a good week!
