Had a lovely time at the RoNA Awards Event last night even though The Secret Kiss of Darkness didn’t win – huge congratulations to Iona Grey who won both our category and the overall prize of Romantic Novel of the Year!

As always, it was wonderful to be at the Gladstone Library, the perfect venue for any literary event, and it was fun to catch up with friends and fellow ChocLiphoto(6)teers, one of whom won the Contemporary category – congrats to Melanie Hudson!

The prizes were presented by TV personality and author Fern Britton and I really enjoyed all the thank you speeches, in particular those given by the two Outstanding Achievement Award winners, Claire Lorrimer and Anita Burgh.  They were both very amusing and were given a standing ovation by the audience – fab!

I’m sure there will be official photos soon, but here are some of mine!
