Some of you may have seen the hype surrounding the Daily Mail’s article about the RNA party on Wednesday, last week. For those who haven’t, here is the article. It basically says that the RNA are full of old ladies in twin-sets who write their sordid tales whilst having their blue rinses. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, there are a fair few mature ladies who are part of the RNA and write romantic fiction, but this is not by any means the long and short of it. I, for one, was at that party, and I am 24! Along with a lot of other 20, 30, 40 something’s…

Here is her post explaining what she aims to achieve.
And here is my contribution. Spread the word people….
