Well we had the official welcome, and then they announced the new first time published authors.  There were 31 one of them this year which is awesome – one is my buddy Peta Crake who I met last year.  Her debut novel Harbinger was announced as part of the Penguin Destiny Romance line on Thursday night.  Congrats Peta!  (And for Calli, Emma and Cupidsbow – she is a Perth girl too)

This was followed by the official launch of the new Little Gems: Diamond anthology.  14 short stories this year – I don’t have it yet but I have always enjoyed getting this collection each year.  Next year’s theme is Sapphire.

And so on to the first  keynote address …

I make arty mixed-media things, & write fantastical things (with kissing), & do musical & dancing things, & play gaming things, & do weightlifting things, & organise fabulous event things. But mostly I wrangle cats. Renaissance woman.
