A bright New Year – and it has kicked off with wonderful news for me. My book THE WHITE PEARL has been shortlisted for a prestigious RoNA Award. I am thrilled!
The RNA does a fabulous job of raising the profile of authors and there is always intense competition for one of its elegant crystal trophies. There are six categories:- Contemporary, Comedy, Epic, Historical, Young Adult and Short romance. THE WHITE PEARL is up for the Historical Award against an array of fantastic writers. I am honoured and delighted to be in the company of such an impressive shortlist. Congratulations to them all.
The fun starts on 26 February when we will all gather in the sumptuous setting of the RAF Club in London, where Richard and Judy – to whom the book-world owes a real debt of gratitude for making reading cool – will host the event and present the awards. Lots of wine and laughter. Loads of killer heels. Publishers looking proud, authors preening feathers. Can’t wait. Time to break out the party frock!
