A Romantic High Tea in Perth: wrap-up

21 September 2017

On Saturday afternoon 9 September a small but enthusiastic group of Western Australian romance readers and writers (Rachael Johns, Christina Phillips and Athena Daniels) got together for the ARRA Romantic High Tea in Perth.

Held at the Point Bar and Grill in East Perth, we had the perfect location against the Swan River, the perfect weather and even more importantly the perfect company! The food was delicious (especially the dessert) and the sparkling wine went down very nicely. We had lots of fun talking about our favourite romance books and how a couple of us had introduced romance (of the saucy variety) to our book clubs.

We all agreed that there are many people who read romance but don’t realise they do so and so having an afternoon with fellow readers who are loud and proud in their love of romance was very special. I think we all went away with a new author suggestion to try and Linda and Rachael even found Linda’s first romance book she ever read (Nina Grant Paediatric Nurse by Patti Stone) at age ten, on Abe Books. She’s going to order a copy right away. It made us think about our gateway romance book!

As usual we could have talked books and writing for much longer, but we all went home with smiles on our faces having had our fix!
