ARRA Awards

I’m thrilled to announce that my book, MARRY IN SECRET, has received several nominations in the ARRA (Australian Romance Readers Association) annual awards.

The ARRA awards are special because they’re judged by the people we write the books for — the readers. And only members of ARRA can vote. It’s lovely to be a finalist. I’m also delighted to see so many new authors on the list. So exciting. Thanks to all involved in running this award, and to all those who contributed, nominating books and voting.

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.

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.
