Concurrent session 5C—Changing lanes: the move to single title
What is like to be a successful Harlequin author and make the move to single title? Fear? Excitement? Anxiety? Joy? Join our panel members—Amy Andrews, Fiona Lowe, Fiona McArthur and Trish Morey—who have made the move to single titles, and find out if they plan to stay in that lane or keep changing lanes.
Then we can find out the reason why now? Does this mean the authors are able to write the stories they have been hoarding in their heads or notepads for years? Why did these authors choose to make the move? Will there be more Harlequin stories? Our authors may also entertain us with excerpts from their next book (if we ask nicely).
Amy Andrews is an award-winning, bestselling Aussie author who has written 40+ contemporary romance novels across both traditional and digital platforms. She loves good books, fab food, great wine, frequent travel and HEAs. She lives on the outskirts of Brisbane with a gorgeous mountain view but secretly wishes it was the hillsides of Tuscany.
Fiona Lowe was first published in 2006. In the ensuing years, she’s written 27 novels, including 21 Harlequin medical romances, four single-title contemporary romances for Carina Press, including the Wedding Fever series, and her current Medicine River books with Berkley. A RITA and RuBY award-wining author, she lives by the sea in southern Victoria with her husband, a teenage son, a neurotic cat, and a young adult son who bounces home from university each summer.
Fiona McArthur lives on the North Coast of NSW. Her latest writing adventure is a three-books-in-three-years contract with Penguin Australia. Fiona loved writing her first big women’s fiction, Red Sand Sunrise, in which her well-grounded knowledge of medical background starred with romance and family. The first of her Flying Doctor’s duo for Penguin is due out in July 2015. She is also published in non-fiction with Penguin, Mother and Baby Magazine, and over thirty medical romances with Harlequin.
USA Today bestselling author, Trish Morey’s 30 titles for Harlequin Presents have sold more than five million copies in more than 25 languages in 40 countries worldwide. Three times nominated and two times winner of RWAustralia’s RuBY Award and a 2012 RWA RITA nominee, Trish is now also writing flirty novellas for Tule Publishing and single title women’s fiction for Pan Macmillan Australia from her home in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.
