Another cause for celebration here on my Rock Star Romance blog! I have joined the Romantic Novelists’ Association, whoooop whooop!
Having followed many an RNA author and NWS author on Twitter and FB for some time; having perused the RNA website and blog; having heard all about their fabulous group of authors, the support they give each other, their amazing conferences, Christmas parties and other functions, it is with considerable excitement that I now find myself part of this association. I really look forward to meeting fellow authors and taking part in as many events as I can possibly manage.
About the Romantic Novelists’ Association
The Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA) was formed in 1960 to promote romantic fiction and to encourage writing, and now represents more than 700 writers, agents, editors and other publishing professionals. Following a hugely successful golden anniversary in 2010, the RNA have been working on a new brand identity to reflect their vision as an organisation. If you want to find out more about the Romantic Novelists’ Association, visit their website or their blog. Sometime soon, there might be my very own author page there, too. And now I will go and celebrate being a Romantic Novelist!
Cheers and rock on!
Copy cat!! Only joking! Great news!! Welcome to the gang! Are you going to the Summer Party in May? I’m going!
I follow in your footsteps, taking your lead. How’s that? Sounds so much nicer than copy cat! I’m afraid I can’t come to the Summer Party–we have so much going on with the family at the moment and the weekends are totally booked. Boo! But I will see you soon, I hope! XX
Congratulations on the new affiliation! It’s always nice to be a part of the ‘in’ crowd, even for rebel rock stars.
oooh, rebel rock star, I like that! 🙂 And yes, it’s nice to have an affiliation or three. Thanks for stopping by, Dana, hope all is well with you! xx
The rebel is a joiner … ha! ha! Congrats honey, you are amongst some lovely writers and authors. They will love having you!
Thanks, Linn! I hope so!!! Rebel-turned-joiner likes companionship, and help, and advice, and people to chat with… as you know firsthand! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
As if there were ever any doubt you’re a romantic novelist! Well done, Nicky! I see you can’t make the Summer party – next time, yes? This will be the first one I go to (too shy before!), so am looking forward to meeting up with Mandy. Fab news. 🙂 xx
Hey Sheryl! You–shy?? Never! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you at a RNA event really soon! XX
Yay! Great to hear that news, Nicky. This is my second year and I’ve met so many lovely people. It’s like walking into a giant group hug. I know you won’t be going to the Summer party but hope to see you at another event. Would be fab to say hello in person 🙂 x x
Hello Jan! A giant group hug?? Wow, that’s just perfect, I can’t wait! No hang on… I’m feeling it already! 🙂 I’m sure I’ll see you at one or another event soon. XX
Hi Nicky! So happy to celebrate your news. You are amongst friends with the RNA. I won’t make the Summer Party either (sigh) but I will be at the conference in July and would love to meet up with you. The RNA rocks!
Hi Janice, thanks for stopping by and its lovely to hear so many wonderful things about the RNA: I can’t wait to get to one of the parties!! (Not that I only joined for the parties but hey, I love a good do!). Hopefully see you really soon! :-)x
Welcome to the mad house! See you at Penrith. xx
The mad house, whooop whooop! A good place for me, hee hee! Can’t make it to Penrith, I’m afraid; we have so much going on with the family move that I just won’t have the time. But roll on winter party!!! XX
That’s me above. lol. I signed in with the wrong account, Nicky! Although am sure all the Romaniacs are pleased to see you’re an official member now too! And we’ll all see you at Penrith.
The RNA is fab!
I thought it was you! 🙂 Comment as ditto: it’s a ‘no’ for Penrith for family reasons but I am so excited to be part of ‘the gang’ as Mandy put it, can’t wait to see you all soon! x
Welcome to the RNA NWS. I can’t make the Summer Party or Conference this year, but am hoping to make it to the Winter Party. Hopefully I’ll see you there.
Hi Debs, thanks so much for the warm welcome!!! I hope to come to the Winter Party and it would be wonderful to meet up there: can’t wait! xx
Fantastic news! Congratulations, I’m so pleased for you 🙂 x
Thanks, Kate, and thanks for stopping by and joining the party–again! Maybe I should rename myself ‘party blog.’ Whoop!
It’s so exciting following your news, Nicky. Congratulations on joining the RNA xx
Thanks, Helen! It seems like everything is happening at once at the moment! Really appreciate you visiting today. XX
So glad you joined – you will have lots of fun and make some great friends. x
Thanks, Sue–it seems I’ve already made some fantastic friends even now, like YOU! Hope to see you at one of the events soon… XX
