... and Elaine Everest (right) celebrating with friends and fellow RNA and SWWJ members, Francesca Capaldi Burgess and Elaine Roberts.
Next up will be the Romantic Novelists Association’s annual Joan Hessayon Awards, where all those aspiring novelists (including me!) who took the journey through the RNA’s New Writers Scheme and made it to publication over the last year or so are going to be celebrated, with one of us receiving the coveted award, along with the generous cheque and all the kudos that goes with it. The ceremony is in London on 18th May, when we will all be in our best dresses and new shoes, and having our photos taken for the RNA’s Romance Matters magazine. Here's my baby... sorry, I mean book.
May the best woman (yes, we are all female) win!
Enjoy the sunny weather - if it ever arrives!
