Laura Purcell’s debut novel, Queen of Bedlam, has been shortlisted for the Best Historical Read at the Festival of Romantic Fiction
Shortlists were released today for the Romance Reader Awards, New Talent Award, and Romance Industry Awards. The winners will be announced at a gala awards ceremony at the Festival of Romantic Fiction on Saturday 13th September.
Awards organiser Sarah Taylor said: “With the highest number of entries the awards have had in their four year history, the standard this year was exceptionally high with many highly rated novels not making the shortlists. The breadth and depth of quality writing in romantic fiction should be celebrated and that’s what these awards are all about.”
