The RoNA’s 2013!

Susanna Kearsley, Charlotte Betts and Kate Furnival

I had a wonderful time at the RoNA Awards event on Tuesday evening, even though The Silent Touch of Shadows didn’t win its category.  The lovely Charlotte Betts won Best Historical Romantic Novel with The Apothecary’s Daughter – well deserved as it’s a fabulous book!

Other winners were Katie Fforde (Best Contemporary), Jenny Colgan (Best Rom Com), Rowan Coleman (Best Epic), Victoria Lamb (Best YA) and Sarah Mallory (RoNA Rose Award) – huge congratulations to all of them!  For lots of photos, have a look at the RNA website and blog.

I’ve been laid low with flu, so won’t post a long report, but here are a couple of more photos from the event!

‘Highland Storms’ a Winner!!!

I still can’t quite believe it, but at the wonderful RNA Awards Event yesterday, in the Gladstone Library at One Whitehall Place, Highland Storms won the RoNA for Best Historical Romantic Novel!!!

The shortlist for that category comprised some amazing novels by Jean Fullerton, Rachel Hore, Marina Fiorato and Christie Dickason, so I felt very honoured to be in their company, let alone be given this award!  Huge thanks to the readers, the organiser and the RNA.

Below are some photos from the event and also of the beautiful bouquet of flowers which I’ve just received from my lovely mum, to whom Highland Storms is dedicated – thank you!  Many thanks also to everyone who has congratulated me, I really appreciate your support!

You can read more about the awards on the RNA website and on the special Awards website here.

Almost forgot – fellow Choc-Liteer Jane Lovering won Best Romantic Comedy with her brilliant Please Don’t Stop the Music and Kate Johnson was shortlisted with her wonderful novel The Untied Kingdom – congratulations to them too!
