December 2015 – Christmas greetings and a quick non-meeting roundup

xmas header  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Roundup.
There was no meeting this month.
Our proposed Christmas lunch was postponed due to a number of reasons.
We do intend to have a lunch sometime in January – we can organise the date, time and venue at our January meeting. Apologies if the chopping and changing caused confusion.

Brisbane Supanova:
Congratulations to Kim for all her hard work this year…firstly on finishing her trilogy Battle in the Dark…and then putting in the hard yards and attending <I have lost count> as many cons as she can to promote her books and meet and greet the steadily growing legion of fans.

Congratulations are also in order on Kim being asked to join one of the panels at Brisbane Supernova. On the panel Kim discussed ‘Creating Kick Ass Characters’ with 3 other authors, Sarah J Maas, Lynette Noni and Melanie Casey.

Star Wars had a definite resurgence due no doubt to the much anticipated new movie out in December; as can be seen by the number of Star Wars fans at Brisbane Supanova.
