Margaret’s wishing the days away…

On Friday 16th November, romantic novelists and their friends and families will be gathering in Bedford for the Festival of Romance. Choc Lit has a strong presence on the shortlists, so I’ll be keeping my fingers firmly twisted for all the members of my Choc Lit family!


Here are details of the people and books hoping to take home awards. May the force be with all of you! I’m looking forward to cheering you all on next week.

  1. I wish I was going now….but I’ll have everything crossed for all of you that you build on Choc Lit’s success. Although I don’t know how all your nerves are going to stand it sitting waiting to hear those words ‘And the winner is….’ so many times.

  2. Thanks Margaret, look forward to seeing you there! And fingers crossed for all of us 🙂

  3. Thank you for the good wishes on this and on other blogs.

    I look forward to seeing the other chocliteers in Bedford next weekend. I so wish we could all win!!
