I'm so excited, I just can't hide it... Hot August Nights is just around the corner

This time next week I will be in BrisVegas for the Romance Writers of Australia annual conference.

Its title Hot August Nights revives memories of Crunchy Granola Suite being piped through the sound system at Chatswood Chase on a Thursday shopping night in the '70s!

But the conference Friday night cocktail party has nothing to do with Neil Diamond. The (optional) fancy dress is Arabian Nights.

So, after some hectic op-shopping, I've found an outfit that is more Byron Bay middle-aged hippy than I Dream of Jeannie. And there is definitely no muffin top exposure.

Saturday and Sunday will be jam-packed with workshops and catching up with some of the wonderful women I've met online since Romance Bootcamp 109 in February.

Let's hope the weekend brings me my three wishes (no, I don't want three packets of Tim Tams).

Soooooooooo EXCITED!!!!

Got a costume together (likewise exposes nothing, and has a passing resemblence to something Arabian).

Can't wait to finally meet Shayne. See you next week *vbg*
