The women who bring you love

In the post this morning a rather dark and blurred photocopy of some pages from the Newcastle Journal's Culture magazine - a copy of the cover with the teaser, The women who bring you love, and three pages from inside - a long feature on members of the RNA's Border Reiver's chapter, including Michelle Styles, Benita Brown, Gwen Kirkwood, Margaret Carr, Erica Yeoman and Anna Lucia.

'First novel co-written with fellow RNA member Kate Allan', Tamzin Lewis writes in her profile of Michelle Styles, 'is published by Robert Hale in May. It's under the name Jennifer Lindsay, a combination of the two women's middle names.'

Along with the feature, in a competition to win ten copies of Benita Brown's The Captain's Daughters and ten copies of The Lady Soldier. I wonder how many people will enter the competition?

'Romantic fiction is a multi-million pound business embracing chick-lit, saga, comedy, historical novels, regency romps and classic bodice rippers,' writes Tamzin Lewis. 'Jilly Cooper epics, Joanna Trollope aga sagas, Carole Matthews comedies and Mills and Boon monthly romances all fall under its heart-shaped umbrella.'

I'm missing the RNA London chapter meeting today, unfortunately, because a frantic week at work means I'm behind and must get things ready for tomorrow.
