links to the lunch

Filed under: RNA, social life?

So apparently I haven’t blogged for a week. My excuse is that the RNA awards luncheon was so fantastic that I wore myself out for an entire seven days. So much so that it’s exhausting even to think about blogging about it, but fortunately others have done that for me, so I’ll just point you to the links (each link opens in a new window):

Julie Cohen, Brigid Coady, Catherine Cobain
Kate Hardy’s blog about it for the RNA blog (My shoes are on there, and Barry Norman. Not together, sadly.)

Some wonderful photos on the RNA blog including this one of me, Brigid Coady and Catherine Cobain

Photo gallery on the RNA website, and official release about the event with the winners

Love Story of the Year winner Nell Dixon’s blog (Hooray Nell!)

Love Story of the Year nominee Nina Harrington’s blog (I took the shoe photo.)

Fiona Harper’s blog (She doesn’t include the fact that I incessantly babbled at her in the pub across the street afterwards.)

It was a wonderful, glittering occasion perfect for celebrating the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s 50th anniversary.

And I’ve just about recovered.

  1. I’m so sorry we never made it to the pub afterwards. I was kidnapped by my agent and forced to drink champagne until I got poured into a taxi and sent off to the station. We’ll have to make up for it at the conference instead.

  2. Ohhh I do so feel for you. 😉

  3. Lovely to see you – and your shoes. Look forward to seeing you at the conf 🙂

    (And I’m so glad I’m not the only one wiped out by London – this morning, I was feeling very old. Oh, wait. I am, compared to you. sigh…)

  4. You always look slim and lovely but excelled yourself at the lunch. Your dress and shoes were awesome! And thanks for the shoe photo.

  5. Kate, you are not old!! You looked gorgeous at the lunch, and I’m sorry we didn’t have a bit more time to catch up. It was crazy there.

    And thank you for the shoe pic! 🙂

  6. Nina, you were truly fab, as a major award nominee should be.

  7. Looks like a fab time was had by all, I’m madly jealous and determined to bloody well make it next year!

  8. Yes, you must come, Kate!

  9. Oh, help, I haven’t blogged either! I need TIME!

  10. Here you go, Jan. *lobs over some spare time*

  11. Wow! Thanks, Julie!

  12. Any time, dude.

  13. I think I did my fair share of babbling too! And love the green bag.

  14. No, Fiona, you were calm and sensible and charming, as always. 😉

  15. See? That’s not my memory of the evening at all! I remember talking rubbish and being incredibly clumsy (not unusual for me).

  16. Just spotted the winky face…

  17. LOL!

    I don’t remember you talking any rubbish or any clumsiness, I do recall grabbing you and making you walk around the pub with me!
