Why I might be AWOL for a while!

My laptop has DIED!!! Finally... kaput. Hopefully the lovely computer man can get off my stuff before he tries to fix but I'm buying another anyway. I have my sights set on a nice hot pink one :) and it'll hopefully arrive within 10 working days. Until then... I'll be borrowing hubby's and my mum's if I sneak off to her place, so I may post less frequently and not visit other blogs as much - just so ya know!!! Will be back ASAP.

Also the next two Saturdays I'm doing the Romance Writer's of Australias Bootcamp 209 and will be busy, busy, busy with that for a few weeks. There's a great line-up of speakers including Diane Gaston, Carol Marinelli and MH's Robyn Grady! I can't wait.

Will hopefully be able to update you soon with how it's all going!!

Oh no about your laptop Rach! But yay on getting a nice new funky pink one.

Have fun with the Bootcamp 209!!

Joanne Cleary said...

Oh no! As the owner of a laptop whose fan sounds like a jumbo jet taking off - you have my sympathies.

But a hot pink one? Seriously cool.

Jackie Ashenden said...

You sound just like my daughter! After watching me reading an ebook on my laptop, she told me yesterday she wanted a 'pink princess computer' with a pink screen and pink keyboard. Guess what her favourite colour is?

Oooh, jealous about your boot camp! Sounds like a fantastic opportunity. Be sure to post about it when you're back.

Felicity Roger said...

Are you getting a pair of shoes to match the laptop. Maybe even a handbag.

Have fun with the bootcamp and looking forward to hearing your feedback

Lacey Devlin said...

I want to go to bootcamp! (six words I never thought I'd say) Am so green with envy :)

Joanne said...

Shame about your lap top - hope your gorgeous new pink one arrives soon!!

Wow - bootcamp sounds ace! Lucky you!!!

Romy said...

Sorry to hear about your laptop. I can empathise as mine crashed and died last week-end. And thanks so much for that idea about the new hot, pink replacement. I just wonder how the company IT guy will feel when I place my order?
Hope you enjoy your new one!

Lorraine said...

Bootcamp sounds fun - like Lacey said, that sounds like a contradiction!

Any news about your chapter going live yet?

Suzanne Brandyn said...

Hi Rach,
That's a relatively new one isn't it. What a shame. Hot Pink. Yup that's you, I can picture it already. It will go with your jacket. :)

Lucy King said...

On a different note, where's your IHP entry??????? What are they doing? Have they lost it? Eaten it? What?

Rachael Johns said...

Thanks everyone! Good news is new laptop is ordered and apparently ready to be dispatched! Can't wait... I feel lost without my writing tool.

Love the idea of new shoes Felicity!

And yes... Suz... should match my jacket perfectly!

Lucy... your guess is as good as mine re chap. Was told by the end of the month but haven't heard anymore. Feel free to email Amy at ihearts - as a newly published author, you may have more pull!!!
