20/03/2014: The Gilded Fan is a Winner!

This year's RoNA's (the RNA's Romantic Novel Awards) took place in the gorgeous Gladstone Library at One Whitehall in London, and I think a good time was had by all! The pink fizz was flowing, the canapés were delicious and the tables were covered in pink heart-shaped chocolates (my personal favourite, of course!). As always, at an RNA gathering, the noise levels had to be heard to be believed.

There were lots of witty speeches (although probably not mine - can't actually remember what I said), and I particularly enjoyed those of Milly Johnson, Dr David Hessayon and Helen Fielding. The awards were presented by the lovely Darcey Bussell and it was a great pleasure to meet her.

For me, it was an extra special evening as The Gilded Fan won the Historical category, despite being shortlisted together with amazing authors Liz Harris, Charlotte Betts, Carol McGrath, Annie Murray and Joanna Hickson. I was so thrilled the readers had chosen my story - huge thanks to them, whoever they are! (Readers for the award are anonymous) And of course, a massive thank you to the wonderful Choc Lit team who believed in this story and published the book!
