A big shout!

To  my good writing mates, Bronwyn Jameson and Annie West who both write exceptionally great romance novels, Bronwyn Jameson for Silhoutte Desire and Annie West for Harlequin Presents. Both these authors have books that have finalled in the Colorado Award of Excellence.

Congratulations to you both and all the best with the final judging!

And then to another raft of award nominees – just recently announced – here are some fabulous Romance Writer of America RITA Award nominees –

Barbara Hannay, who writes the most heart warming, emotional stories

Lilian Darcy, who writes fabulous romances that touch your heart

Stephanie Laurens (nominated in three separate categories!) who writes fabulous lush, rich regency romances

Nalini Singh, who is not only Downunder’s most recent New York Times Bestseller, but a RITA finalist now, to boot! Way to go, Nalini!

Christine Wells, a new face on the scene, whose witty and seductive historicals are making a splash!

CS Harris, a former Adelaide resident and fabulous author, who used to write romance under the name of Candice Proctor. A must buy!


Congratulations one and all! To me it doesn’t matter who takes home the RITA come the big night in July. It’s such a fabulous honour to be nominated. So enjoy!

Meanwhile, I have a book to finish and I’m heading off for a few days writing retreat at the beach in Sydney with a few fellow authors. It won’t be all fun and games (I have a book to finish, after all:-)) but it will be fabulous to connect with a few great writing friends again for a few days, a couple of whom appear on the list above! Am hoping some of their magic rubs off.

Meanwhile the eharlequin on line read has finished and most readers seem very happy with chapter twenty. Blissful sigh. It’s lovely to see another romance put happily to bed (in more ways than one!)

See you in a week or so,
