Minxes of Romance! Well, three of them. It was lovely to see them and I can report I didn't see any bad behaviour at all!
Some fellow Mills and Boon authors, the lovely Kate Walker, Fiona Harper, India Grey, Natalie Rivers, Anne Fraser, Carol Townend and Louise Allen, Jennifer Taylor. Joanna Fulford.

I also had the joy and pleasure of meeting with the Scottish contingent! The lovely Jenny Harper - (who has the best business card I've seen in years!) Anne Graham, Rosemary Gemmell and Janice Horton.

We flat-shared with Tamsyn Murray, Cally Taylor , Rowan Coleman. There was certainly a lot of chat!
Part of the fun of the conference is the chance to learn something new and attend the talks. Liz Fenwick and I took part in a session about the New Authors Scheme as we had both came through this. Julie Cohen made everyone cry in the space of four minutes, a feat not lightly achieved. Talli Roland gave a great talk around social media and promoting yourself. (All with a beautiful baby bump!) and Kate Harrison presented her research on women's fiction which was fascinating. I particularly enjoyed the profiles of the readers!
I've already been online to check out transport to Sheffield foe next year. I'm trying to figure out why the train from Glasgow to London takes 4 and a half hours and the train from Glasgow to Sheffield six hours!
