...the Romance Writers of America Conference, either.

I'm sad about that. I won't get the chance to meet up with friends I've made across the globe, not just writers but readers, too.

But I can't miss this opportunity to those authors who have been shortlisted for the RITA this year, especially dear friends, Anne McAlister, with her One Night Mistress... Convenient Wife. Jennie Lucas with The Christmas Love Child. Linda Goodnight nominated for The Snow Kissed Bride, Jane Porter for Duty, Desire and the Desert King all in the Short Contemporary Category.

There's Elizabeth Rolls, too, with her Regency Historical, Lord Braybrooke's Penniless Bride.

And a huge shout out in the category for mainstream women's books with a romance element - The Lost Recipe for Happiness by Barbara O'Neal, which was one of my favourite reads of last year.

Good luck to them and everyone who had a book shortlisted. They are the best of best published books last year and you can see the entire list of books and authors here

Congrats to all the nominees!

I'm disappointed that I won't be able to attend your Mills and Boon Masterclass on the 9th Liz! I swear the second I win the lotto I'm migrating :). I don't suppose there will be an online version?

Well maybe I could think of something, Lacey. Maybe a question and answer blog? But not until the ice cream book is sorted. I am in what is known as a bit of a muddle, having rewritten the first three chapters several times and then changed everything.

There's good stuff I don't want to lose but the cutting and pasting is making my head hurt!

Thanks for considering it :). I'm really looking forward to your ice cream book, such a shame it isn't behaving itself. It'll be worth it in the end :)
