I loved GenreCon 2012, but GenreCon 2013 rocked to the power of ten! Why? Not only did I get to catch up with old and new writing friends in the heart of Brisbane at the State Library of Queensland but it also provided the pad for my official national launch of my debut novel, The Blood She Betrayed.
Congratulations to fellow debut urban fantasy author Dean J Anderson and Melbourne crime author Jane Clifton who launched their books, Unnaturals and Flush, at the same time – and special thanks to New York Times bestselling author Keri Arthur (pictured with Dean and I here) who launched Dean’s book.
For a full wrap of the day, check out Clan Destine Press’s fabulous summary of the event at their website.
While at GenreCon, I also chaired a panel featuring John Birmingham, Anna Campbell and Dr Lynda Davies. It was a delight to spend time with these authors and hear their insightful ideas on the topic Using and Abusing History. I’m looking forward to picking Lynda’s brains in the future when it comes to serious research time for the setting of my third Heart Hunters novel, The World She Lost.
