Festival of Romance Fun!

Just back from the Festival of Romance weekend in Bedford, and what a weekend it turned out to be!  The Silent Touch of Shadows won the Best Historical Read category of the FoR Awards, which was an absolutely wonderful surprise!  Especially as I was up against such amazing books, all written by my lovely friends as I mentioned in the last post.  Huge thanks to the organiser of FoR, Kate Allan, the organiser of the FoR Awards, Sarah Taylor, and the reading panel led by Louise Graham!

That wasn’t all though as my lovely publisher Choc Lit also won a prize – Publisher of the Year – which was brilliant!  Huge congratulations to everyone on the Choc Lit team 🙂
