Choc Lit Double Whammy!!

A fantastic night for Choc Lit at the RNA’s Summer Party last night! Not only did Evonne Wareham win the Joan Hessayon award for Best New Writer, but Jane Lovering also won The Romantic Novel of the Year Award!

The Choc-Liteers were out in force to cheer them on and we all agreed that Evonne’s Never Coming Home and Jane’s Please Don’t Stop the Music were worthy winners and we were so pleased the judges agreed!

The party was held at the Royal Over-Seas League, just off St. James’s Street, in the lovely Hall of India, and it was buzzing to say the least. The room was decorated with balloons and posters in the new RNA colour magenta, which added sparkle to the event, and there was plenty of ‘fizz’ for us to toast the winners with. Over 240 authors and publishing industry professionals were in attendance, a lot of them looking very glamorous indeed and there was the usual high number of amazing shoes on display.

All in all, it was a fabulous night for us and HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Evonne and Jane!

  2. It’s going to be a long, long time before any of us forgets that wonderful night, isn’t it? Oh, and the lunch the next day when more champagne flowed…..:) Well done, you two – hope you are still on your celebratory clouds.

  3. Congratulations to everyone involved – can’t wait to read the winning novels, which are waiting for me on my Kindle.
