Sue and I are looking forward to reading some wonderful short stories from RNA members, both full and NWS.

As most of you will know by now, Choc Lit is a go-getting indie publisher which has already won several awards.

Writing about chocolate.... mm, what could be better?! And if anyone is in need of inspiration, check out the wonderful CHOC Chick at for healthy ways to make your own chocolates.
