It’s almost time for this year’s Festival of Romance and I’m absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for one of the awards – Best Historical Read – for The Silent Touch of Shadows! I’m in great company, with fellow authors and friends Liz Harris, Jean Fullerton, Jenny Barden, Nicola Cornick and Charlotte Betts also nominated for this prize. My publisher Choc Lit has been nominated for the Publisher of the Year Award and Choc Lit authors Sue Moorcroft and Jane Lovering are among authors nominated for several other prizes. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone at the gala ball on 16th November! (For more information on all the shortlists please see here)
The Festival is taking place in the centre of Bedford this time, so if you’re anywhere near there, please come along – it’s going to be great fun! There are still tickets for some of the events available and the Romance Fair, held in the Howard Room of the Corn Exchange on Saturday 17th November between 10.00-17.00 is free for everyone. On the Sunday, I’m attending the ‘Historical Afternoon Tea’ at the Park Inn (3.30pm) – if you like historical romance and scones, do come (but don’t forget to book in advance)! Sounds like a great combination to me
I’ll be there from Friday to Sunday and hope to see some of you there!
