Finalist!

I’m delighted to announce that my book Marry In Scandal is a finalist in Romance Writers of Australia’s Romance Book of the Year (RuBY) — the historical romance section.

This is Lily’s story and was a bit of a book of the heart. You can read more about the story here , as well as read an excerpt.

 

 

 

 

 

The other finalists in other categories are here, and I’m delighted to see several of my friends’ books.

And don’t forget that this book Marry in Scandal, plus Marry In Haste and Marry In Secret (out 30 July) are all in a #giveaway at the moment.

If you live outside the USA —anywhere in the world — email me through the contact form on my website and I’ll enter you in my own private draw.

The Australian Romance Readers Awards

I’m just back from Sydney where I attended the Australian Romance Readers annual awards dinner.  It’s always a lovely event —  meeting up with readers and fellow authors, talking about and celebrating books, and eating good food in a lovely old hotel.

 

 

Our table — that’s us in the photo — ended up celebrating quite a lot, as three of us (Kelly Hunter, Keri Arthur and I) won awards.

From left: Jacqui Greig,  Keri Arthur, Kelly Hunter, then I’m across the table next to Alli Sinclair and Jo MacKay (from HarperCollins). Kariss Stone took the photo.

 

 

My book, MARRY IN SCANDAL, won Favourite Historical Romance.

Here’s me with my award. 

It was a lovely night, and I’d like to thank Debbie Phillips, the ARRA organizer, and the wonderful volunteers and readers who make ARRA such a special organization.

Exciting news

Nominations for the Australian Romance Readers Association annual awards are out, and I have three listingsFavourite Historical Romance (for Marry in Scandal), Favourite Continuing Romance Series (My Marriage of Convenience series) and I’ve been nominated for the Favourite Australian Romance Author 2018

The full list is here.

The winners will be announced at an awards dinner in Sydney on February 23rd in the gorgeous historic dining room at the Castlereagh boutique hotel. 

These dinners are always a lot of fun, as readers and authors mingle, eat, and talk books. I love them because I get to catch up with friends — both readers and authors.

It’s always a fun night. You can book for the dinner here.

Alternatively (or additionally) you can attend the High Tea that takes place from 11am – 1pm and devour yummy cakes and savories while you meet people and talk books. For the high tea booking, click here.

I’m also pleased because the photo ARRA is using of the awards shows three of the awards I won in 2016 and one by my good friend Keri Arthur.  That was our table — and yes, we did drink that champagne.

 

Last year my table was also very lucky. I won three awards and my friends Kelly Hunter and Keri Arthur also won. That’s them in the photo below,  holding their awards.

 

 

 

Thank you to all the volunteers who organize and participate in ARRA — romance readers are so wonderful and enthusiastic and encouraging.
