On the RoNA Shortlists!

The RoNA (RNA’s Romantic Novel Awards) shortlists have been announced and I am thrilled to have The Secret Kiss of Darkness nominated in the Historical Romantic Novel category!  I have known for a while but was sworn to secrecy so it’s lovely to be able to tell everyone at last 🙂

I’m up against some fabulous historical authors and am very much looking forward to reading their books.  Here’s the list:-

Special shout out for fellow ChocLiteers Melanie Hudson, Alison May and Angela Britnell who are also shortlisted in various categories – so exciting!

The awards ceremony is on the 7th March – please keep your fingers crossed for me!

RNA Summer Party

At the recent Romantic Novelists’ Association’s summer party I had the great pleasure of meeting Lindsey Davis, the best-selling historical novelist, and I just had to put up this lovely photo of us taken by the RNA’s photographer Marte Lundby Rekaa.

Ms. Davis was the guest of honour and, after a brilliant and very amusing speech, she presented the RNA’s Romantic Novel of the Year Award to the winner Jenny Colgan.
