2018 Awards: dinner tickets on sale

15 December 2018

The Australian Romance Readers Association is pleased to announce the eleventh annual Australian Romance Readers Awards will be presented at a special dinner, to be held at Cello’s Restaurant, at the Castlereagh Hotel, Sydney, from 7.00 pm to 11.00 pm on Saturday 23 February 2019.

All fans of romance fiction are invited to attend this gala evening to help us celebrate the very best of romance fiction from 2018.

Members will finalise their nominations in January and the award finalists will be announced on 15 January.

We are delighted to announce that Abbi Glines will be our guest speaker for the evening. Abbi is a #1 New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys, Existence, and The Field Party Series. She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers. When she’s not locked away writing, she is reading, shopping (major shoe and purse addiction), sneaking off to the movies alone, and listening to the drama in her teenagers lives while making mental notes on the good stuff to use later. She uses social media to procrastinate.

Tickets for the dinner are now on sale. Tickets are $97 for ARRA members and $107 for non-members. (Members, the discount code is in the December newsletter.) Ticket price includes a three-course meal, drinks and door prizes.

You can buy your tickets here.

Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. Ticket sales will close on 15 February 2019 (unless sold out earlier).

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous sponsors, who make these awards possible:
