success breeds success

I lunched yesterday with so many award nominees my head was spinning! Of course the champagne and glittering conversatio that comes with any meeting of authors could have been the reason ;).

Regular Melbourne Mobster lunchers Marion Lennox and Anne Gracie had both received RITA nominations earlier that week. And for those of you not in the know, the RITAs are the highest award accolade a romance writer can get. Think Oscar time! And Nicola Marsh's fabulous novel "Impossibly Pregnant" the first book in the Office Gossip trilogy, for which I wrote book two thank-you very much, has been nominated for a HOLT medallion!

Now, just to add to the fun, the fabulous Bronwyn Jameson, and the delightful Lillian Darcy, who had also both been nominated for RITAs decided to fly in for the day to partake in our rowdy lunch. It was a blast, with clinking of glasses, clapping of hands and kissing of cheeks.

Here's hoping come mid-year those nominations all turn into lovely gold trophies!!!
