Advance copies and RoNAs!

Seeing a pile of books with your name on it has to be one of the best feelings in the world!  And it was what happened to me this afternoon as the advance copies of The Silent Touch of Shadows arrived – yeah!  I was thrilled to see the finished version and love the cover – it definitely looks even better for real 🙂  It goes on sale at the beginning of July, can’t wait!

There’s more excitement to come next week at the RNA’s Summer Party, when the winner of The Romantic Novel of the Year Award (RNOTY) will be announced, as well as the winner of the Joan Hessayon Award for best new writer.  As I’m one of the finalists for the RNOTY, I was very happy to see an excellent article about it in today’s issue of the Daily Express (link here), written by Emma Lee-Potter.  Huge thanks to her for being so positive about romantic novels!


  1. I look forward to reading this one, Pia, and I have a feeling it is set in my next interest period, one I absolutely love.x
