Book-signing event in Adelaide
The Australian Romance Readers Association will be hosting a book-signing event this August in Adelaide. It will be held in conjunction with the Romance Writers of Australia conference, and will run from 5.00 to 6.00 pm on Saturday 20 August at the Stamford Grand in Glenelg. This will be the tenth group signing we have hosted, and the sixth in conjunction with RWA.
We are very excited to announce that international authors Heather Graham, May McGoldrick (aka Jan Coffey) and Catherine LaRoche will headline the event, along with our favourite romance authors from around Australia. In total there will be 64 romance authors signing. Come along and meet your favourite authors and maybe find some new authors to try. The list of signing authors is shown below.
The event will be open to the public, with an entry fee of just $15. Or you can pre-purchase your tickets online at a discounted price of $10 ($7 for ARRA members). Entry will include the opportunity to score some free books.
We will also have a souvenir booklet available for purchase (available with pre-purchased tickets only). If you collect a signature from every attending author in the booklet you can go in the draw to win our signature hunter prize.
Tickets for the signing will go on sale here on 5 June.
But before then we are running an online Treasure Hunt with the opportunity for readers to win free tickets to the signing. Stay tuned for more details on this—the Treasure Hunt will launch tomorrow. (UPDATE: The Treasure Hunt is now closed.)
We will also be running a Chocoholics Competition—see below for details.

Full conditions of entry are available here. (UPDATE: The Chocoholics Competition is now closed. The winner was Zoe J.)
