Meet the Hard-Hearted Hannas
Meet four of the hardest hearted romance writers this side of an e-book.
They’re published, battle-tested, conference-proof. They’re not frightened of a slash and burn edit or a re-submit. They’ve faced editorial boards, and Goodreads hordes. They laugh – hah – hah, at irrelevant covers and disadvantageous pricing, they sneer at big name authors stealing their launch day thunder.
They’re keyboard masters, outline wizards, and scene gurus. They wear the pantsers like no-one else and cliffhang with the best of them.
They’ve been brought together for the first time to judge the Hooked on your First Love competition at AusRomToday.
They’re beyond bribery, above corruption and inside-out over prologues.
This is who competitors are dealing with:
Sandra Antonelli: Pun cracker, coffee addict, writer of romances for grown-ups and smart-asses. Ask her about phobias. Sandra knows her phobias. Also aprons. Suit up for her newest release, Driving in Neutral in September.
Rhian Cahill: House slave, drinker of disgustingly good for you heath juices, multi-published author of erotic romances. Rhian likes a good party game. She’s kissed a bottle or two in her day. And then she mixes it up with sweet stuff. Her latest release is Down & Dirty, out now
Cate Ellink: Erotic romance writer whose formative years were heavily influenced by reading all the naughty bits in books she was banned from. Deceptively persuasive, Cate talked me into being on a panel for the RWA conference. Something about cats. I didn’t read the fine print. Her new release Deep Diving is out September.
Rebekah Turner: Epic romantic fantasy author and wielder of snark. Author of The Chronicles of Applecross: Chaos Born, Chaos Bound and Chaos Broken on the way. Intimate of photoshop, be afraid, I’ve seen what she can do with unwanted hair.
Using a special algorithm known only to Amazon, the Hannas will select three winners on the basis of the sentiment, salaciousness and the aww factor of their entry.
The winning entries will make you have all the feels.
And good luck.
