The Australian Romance Readers Association offers readers unique opportunities to connect with other romance readers in Australia, attend events, meet some of your favourite romance authors, and talk about your favourite books with people who understand. For romance authors, it offers the opportunity to reach new Australian readers, and to connect with Australian fans.
We have a thriving online community, and a monthly newsletter full of reviews, news, views, and profiles, all aimed at romance readers. Visit our blog for all our latest news, or join our Facebook Group to chat about romance.
In 2019 we held our first A Romantic Rendezvous multi-author, multi-city signing events, featuring special guests Celeste Bradley and Keri Arthur. In March 2020 our second series of events, ARR2020, featured Darynda Jones and Susan Donovan. Plans for 2021 were put on hold due to the pandemic, but instead we planned and hosted A Romantic Rendezvous (Locked Down) online event.
ARRA has published a romance novel! Written by Shannon Curtis, from plot ideas crowd-sourced from ARRA readers, Tribal Law is a sexy paranormal romance. Find out more here.
