Guest Post & Giveaway - The Glitz of the RNA Awards by Liz Fenwick - RNA Awards Week

Glitz, glam, frocks, shoes and champagne. The awards ceremony for the Romantic Novelists’ Association Romantic NoNAs and Romantic Novel of Year is all that and more. It’s an event that celebrates the best in women’s fiction in the United Kingdom.

When I attended my first awards ceremony it was a lunch held at the Savoy. I was an unpublished and knew no one. I found myself seated at a table with Jill Mansell. I’m not sure I said I word I was so in awe but she couldn’t have been more welcoming. And that is the thing about the RNA it is welcoming and supporting. Since I joined the association back in the 2005 I have missed only two awards events…I’ve always looked forward to dusting off my finest frock and catching up friends – old and new.

It’s a time to celebrate fellow writers achievements, which lift all of us in the industry including the unpublished. During all those years I learned so much from the generous pros who quietly guided me on my way including the late Penny Jordan. (pictured with me the year she won a lifetime achievement award)

So I cannot find the words to say how delighted I am to have Under A Cornish Sky nominated with so many other books. No matter what happens it will be a wonderful night! 

In past years I’ve snapped pictures so that those members who couldn’t make it to the event could feel like they’d been there…this year someone else may have to take over!
