My RNA Conference in pictures

Highlight of my day – the best selling Katie Fforde, one of my favourite authors, buying a copy of my book, Just Say Yes.

The web is buzzing with accounts and photos from the RNA Conference 2014 which was held over the past four days in and around Telford. You can see from the previous blog post that I took part in some library events and gave a talk with Nell Dixon at the Conference itself – but many people stayed for the whole weekend and have lots more to say, so I’m going to be lazy and post pictures (mainly because I am in the middle of copy edits for Third Time Lucky.)

The picture at the top is of the awesome and wonderful Katie Fforde – I’d literally just arrived in the reception when she came up to the bookstall and bought a copy of Just Say Yes so I had the total thrill of signing it for her. The pic is shaky because it was from my antique camera phone – and also I’m not sure what the lovely Jan from Waterstones had been drinking while manning the bookshop… (only joking)

There were lots of workshops, lots of writers learning new skills, industry panels, debates and discussions – lots of buying of books and serious research. However, i was only there for one day which was spent nervously pacing the building, drinking Costa until our talk. We then attended the dinner – lovely food, but it took a while to serve 220 people so by the cheese course, I was knackered and had to drive home.
