A Romantic Rendezvous (Locked Down)

16 May 2020

ARRA have been working on something special for the last little while …

We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting an online romance readers convention, which we are calling A Romantic Rendezvous (Locked Down).

The general idea is to host Zoom sessions with authors in various formats—Feature Author interviews, Fangirling, Collaborations, Ask Me Anything, Topic Panels, Readers, Virtual House Parties and more. Sessions will be recorded (some with a live audience, some without) and then they’ll all go live on the ARRA YouTube channel over our convention weekend (date still to be set, but we’re hoping it will be June or July). We’ll provide more information on each session as we announce them. Join the ARRLD Facebook page to keep up to date.

Our members can get involved too. You will have the chance to submit questions for our guest authors, and for some sessions you can even participate. Make sure you’re signed up for the Members’ Loop. All new announcements will be made there, so that is the best way to ensure you don’t miss out on anything. As everything is taking place online, it means that you can take part from wherever you are. Don’t miss this opportunity!

We are so excited for the opportunity to connect with some of our very favourite authors, particularly those who have not yet had the chance to visit Australia! So far, the following authors have agreed to do one or more sessions:
