Trophy Presentation...

If you read my post about Awards Night early last month, you may recall that it was the announcement that I'd won the Nottingham Writers' Club, Mary Street Shield- the official title is 'The Romantic Novelist of the Year'...

I'm grateful that I was only required to submit a synopsis and first three chapters and not the whole thing- as I'm still writing it!

This is the second time my name has gone onto this trophy, so it looks like writing romance is my strong point... :D

As it's a bi-annual competition I now have time to come up with a few ideas for 2016!

Anyway here's the picture from last night's meeting.

    1. Thank you, Ana. I was quite pleased with how the photo looked once I'd cropped it a little.

  3. What a lovely photo, Carol. Congratulations xx

  4. Lovely photo, Carol - and that's definitely a sign you should be finishing that first novel and getting it out! Have you not joined the RNA New Writers Scheme?That's a great motivator.

  5. Thank you, Rosemary.

    I'm certainly aiming to get both completed and sent out this year- now I've found the best working method for me. :-)

    I haven't joined the new writers scheme, but will look at it for next January.

  6. Many Congratulations, Carol. What a wonderful trophy. Do you get to keep it for the year? Wishing you continued success!

    1. Thank you, Nicola. :-)

      It is a wonderful trophy- and yes I do get to keep it for a year, though as it is now a bi-annual competition, I may actually end up keeping it until the 2016 awards.
