RNA Conference 2011 - Post Two

First my pictures from day one are up on the RNA Blog. However not all of them are there. I saved a few more intimate ones for here...

This was a very special conference for me. It was my first one as a 'published' writer. As a newbie you sit listening to the celebratio announcements on the Friday afternoon and dream of the day when your turn will come. Well mine had come and it was better than I ever dreamed. I stood and told of my wonderful year...an agent (and not just any agent but Carole Blake), a deal but not one - three! And not only did I get to say all this...my agent was there too!

In our flat just after the celebrations announcements Julie Cohen greeted me with a bottle of champagne saying - your first sale happens only once so must celebrate as much as possible. I like her thinking :-)

Well done you!! And I agree it was a fab conference! I had an announcement too and wasn't there to hear it but at least half a dozen people told me about it! Looking forward to the next event!

And just think, we get to celebrate all over again when the book comes out! And the next one...and the next...
