Researching online romance genre communities and their perspectives

Golden Heart

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bron at 8:12 pm on Tuesday, July 17, 2007

I’m finally home again from my trip to the RWA conference in Dallas – I still can’t quite believe that I won a Golden Heart Award! Thanks to everyone for their congratulations.

I’ll blog a little more about the Dallas and Golden Heart experience in the next day or so over at my writing blog, but in the meantime, there’s some photos over at my friend Theresa’s blog.

I’m taking my jet-lagged brain and body off to bed – I have to go to work tomorrow, so I definitely need sleep in order to function in the morning!

Radio interview online

My interview for ABC* Radio National’s Bush** Telegraph went quite well this morning.

If anyone would like to listen to it, the audio file of the Bush Telegraph (rural and regional news and issues) program is now available. It’s in the program for Friday 6th July. Click on the audio links to the right to either listen via streaming or download the file. I’m about 26 mins into the program. (The audio files are only online for about two weeks.)

*The ‘A’ in ABC being for Australian, not the American broadcaster.
**No connection to any US Presidents. ‘The Bush’ in Australia is anything outside the cities.

RWA Dallas

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bron at 12:03 pm on Thursday, July 5, 2007

It’s only two more sleeps before I leave home and head to Dallas for the RWA conference.

I’ll be setting up some online focus groups when I get back, to have some real-time discussion about the genre, but if there’s anyone who’s going to Dallas who’d like to meet up with me for a chat, and provide your opinions and thoughts, I’d love you to contact me – you can email me at bronwyn.clarke at or leave a message for me at the Hyatt.

I’m looking forward to Dallas, and starting to get quite excited about it! I just have to finish getting myself organised and packed 🙂
