50 glorious years of the Romantic Novelists’ Association
On Thursday Fabulous at Fifty, a memoir of the first half century of the Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA), will be launched at the RAF Club in London. Fabulous at Fifty delves into the past, with first-hand recollections of people who were there, and describes the growth of the Romantic Novelists’ Association into what was described by PD James at a recent Awards ceremony as ‘one of most professional writers’ organisations of the present day’.
The history is packed with fascinating and frank detail about past and present members, the opinion of other novelists (often less than flattering) about this massively successful commercial genre, the changing attitude to sex and a public broadside from Marje Proops in the Mirror plus the spats, the flaps, the End of Publishing as we Know It (1968), hot books and cold champagnes.
The book will be published by the RNA on 14th October at £9.99 and available from their website www.romanticnovelistsassociation.org
