Australian Romance Readers Association

ARRA-logo_RGB_medium-qualityWe talked about all the fun that was had at the ARRA dinner last week, so we thought we’d give the association behind the night a bit of space to tell you all about themselves, what they offer, and why you should join up.

ARRA do a fabulous job of promoting romance, getting readers together, and throwing great events. We’re members – and recommend that you join ASAP as well!

BSE4 banner_600The Australian Romance Readers Association was established in 2008 in order to unite a vast community of romance readers, and to promote romance fiction. ARRA is the first national organisation of its kind, and is committed to serving the needs of its members throughout Australia and beyond. ARRA is dedicated to providing a forum for romance readers to communicate, share and explore all things romance fiction.

ARRA was created by romance readers, for romance readers. With a growing community of avid fans of all sub-categories of the romance fiction genre, we are the largest network of romance readers in the Southern Hemisphere.

Our activities include local social events, the annual Australian Romance Reader Awards, and the biennial Australian Romance Readers Convention. We also host group book-signing events where readers get to meet local and international romance authors.

Join ARRA today and:

  • connect with our blog and email group—enjoy 24-hour access to reviews, interviews, giveaways and other people who like to read the same things you do

  • get the inside scoop with authors and publishers via our monthly e-newsletter

  • receive discounts on all our events

  • vote in the Australian Romance Reader Awards

  • attend the annual ARRA Awards Dinner

  • rub shoulders with best-selling authors at our biennial Australian Romance Readers Convention

  • catch up with other members at our monthly social events around Australia.

ARRA also offers great benefits to authors. We offer opportunities for you to reach your current readers and fans … and find new ones! We feature reviews and new book releases each month, and have a blog where you are always welcome as a guest blogger.

In August this year we will be hosting a book-signing event in Sydney that will feature 80 romance authors, including international guests Cherry Adair and Marie Force. You can find out details here: http://australianromancereaders.wordpress.com/2014/03/17/book-signing-event-in-sydney/

In March next year we will be holding our 4th biennial Australian Romance Readers Convention in Canberra. We are thrilled to be welcoming Helene Young, Sylvia Day and Victoria Dahl as keynote speakers at this convention.
