You know that story about Cinderella? Well, I feel like it’s happening to me! Not the Prince Charming part (I’ve met and married mine) but the bit about ‘you shall go to the ball’.
In this case it’s the 2009 Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance ball – or rather award ceremony – on 10th June in London. This prestigious award was started after Melissa’s tragic death from cancer 3 years ago. There are 6 books on the shortlist – and my debut novel The Importance of Being Emma is one of them!
You can check out the short list, the judges and the award background (well worth a read) on http://www.melissanathan.com/Award/Index.asp. Previous winners are Marian Keyes and Lisa Jewell.
Now where’s that glass slipper?
