Romantic Novel of the Year Awards
The Romantic Novelists Association (RNA) have announced the creation of their Pure Passion Awards consisting of The Romantic Comedy of the Year, The People's Choice Award and the RNA Romantic Film of the Year in celebration of their Golden Anniversary.
You can read more on the RNA blog
and also at the RNA's gorgeous new website. Read the shortlists here.
The winners of these awards, as well as the Romantic Novel of the Year Award and The Love Story of the Year Award will be announced at the Awards Luncheon being held at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington High Street on Tuesday 16th March.
I was sitting at my computer checking flights for 16th, and was unable to shift a nagging feeling that this date rung a bell somewhere in my subconscious. I then realized that one of my biggest clients is travelling to the island on 16th and I'm having dinner with him and a couple of Directors, followed by a meeting the following day with them and advisers who will be flying over to join us.
So, guess who won't be able to attend the lunch. I have to admit that I'm still arguing with myself as to whether I dare attempt to go, but know that I'll have a lot to prepare for these meetings, and can I possibly chance my flight being delayed and not being able to make the meal?
Ah well, if I really can't make the luncheon, at least I'll still have my copy of Loves Me, Loves Me Not, the RNA Anthology filled with over 40 stories from such eminent authors as Christina Jones, Katie Fforde (RNA Chair), Joanna Trollope, Victoria Connelly and Anita Burgh.
