Yes, I am getting out and about! From Queensland to Queenscliff! On Saturday September 8th, down in sleepy, glorious Queenscliff (90 minutes drive from Melbourne) there is going to be a fabulous day called Romance By The Sea. It’s all about reading and revelling in the books you enjoy, and a host of authors will be gathering to give readers a wonderful day.
Who will be there? New York Times’ best selling authors Stephanie Laurens and Keri Arthur, local authors Marion Lennox, Fiona Lowe (me), Sarah Mayberry, Anne Gracie, Carol Marinelli & Jennifer Kloester and many, many more. Click here for a full list!
As well as having a fabulous time at the day, you’ll also be helping to raise funds for Cottage By The Sea …yes, that wonderful place that Olympic champion Cathy Freeman is patron. The cottage provides seaside holidays for disadvantaged children and for families needing respite. In fact, I based my novel, Miracle: Twin Babies around both Cottage by the Sea and Queenscliff…I just changed the name of the town!
All authors and organisers involved in Romance by the Sea are generously volunteering their time, in order to help raise funds for this worthy cause.
Tickets to attend Romance by the Sea are $100 ($70 of which will be receipted as a tax deductible donation to Cottage By The Sea.) Price includes a delicious, light lunch at the historic Queenscliff Hotel, insights into the life and loves of some of Australia’s favourite authors, as well as readings and signings at venues all over town.

You can come just for the day or if you’d like to make a weekend of it, there’ll be a pay-as-you-go dinner at the hotel on Saturday night. On Sunday morning there will be more signings and authors available to chat. For accommodation in Queenscliff, click here.
Gather your fellow romantics and come and play in glorious, romantic, Queenscliff. I hope to see you there!
