The RoNAs 2017

A week ago Dave (my hubby) and I had a lovely evening at the Romantic Novelists Association Novel Of the Year Awards. (RoNAs) - a glittering occasion with canap├ęs and bubblies in the Gladstone Library in Whitehall Place, London.

This is the reception area, isn't it amazing!

'Beloved Enemy' was on the shortlist for the Paranormal/Speculative fiction section. (I may have mentioned this before :) ) The other nominees were Christinea Courtenay with 'The Velvet Cloak of Midnight', Jan Jones with 'An Ordinary Gift' and Kate Johnson's 'Max Seventeen.'

I didn't win - the winner was Kate Johnson with her gritty SF novel, 'Max 17' a very worthy winner I might add. I had no expectations of winning, myself, I was just thrilled to be on the shortlist!

The wine was flowing!

What a brilliant evening - this was my first time at a RoNA Awards ceremony and it certainly lived up to expectations!
