Last weekend it was my turn to go roaming the streets and this particular Romaniac was let loose in Milton Keynes.
Saturday 7th June was the annual agency day for the Kate Nash Literary Agency and, having signed with Sarah Taylor in January, I was invited.
I can’t tell you how excited I was. It has been quite some months since I last attended a writing event so I was looking forward to seeing other writers in the flesh – and knowing that there are still other crazy people Out There.
The day was amazing. Lots of useful and essential tips and information was on offer both from Kate and Sarah, and also fellow writers, too. Ranging from industry trends, to the latest bestsellers, to marketing. Throw in lots of laughter and lovely food and you get a jist of why I had so much fun.
After a day of talking – and sipping back on the free tea, coffee and biscuits – we retired to our rooms to get ready for an evening out. The agency day coincided with Jane Lovering’s publication day. Falling Apart celebrated its birthday in true, author style.
It went out and PARTIED!
For a more in depth look at Falling Apart’s antics – pop over to my blog, here. *WARNING* Not for the faint hearted …
We had a lovely evening out in Milton Keynes. Dinner, cocktails and lots of dancing. Kate and Sarah put together a fantastic day and I am sure I am not alone when I say a massive THANK YOU to them both for a wonderful weekend.
*Kate and Sarah are both accepting submissions at the moment, so If you would like to submit to either of them, please do! You will find submission guidelines here. *
And now to look forward to the RNA conference where a number of Romaniacs will be let loose … don’t say I didn’t warn you!

You can’t beat being with other writers!! Looks like you ladies had a great time in MK. I’m off to London this afternoon with Adrienne Vaughan to LIz Fenwick’s book launch in Waterstones, Kensington. I hear there will be Cornish Ice cream and PImms and, oh yes, books to buy !!
Sounds like an awesome day! Thanks for sharing, and congrats on all your achievements, Lucie! XX 🙂
