The Romantic Novelists’ Association really is a wonderful organisation. You can find out more about it here. I joined at the beginning of this year and already I have made some good friends and found the support from other writers invaluable. I have to confess to being one of those authors who initially said, ‘I don’t write romantic fiction’, but I have since discovered that the genre is extremely broad, with many sub genres. I write about life, and relationships and in the two books I have written so far there is a relationship theme and love running through it, even though this may not be the main theme, it is definitely there!
We even have some budding authors from the New Writers’ Scheme on our online Novel Writing Course, and I’m very excited to be a reader for the scheme this year. The scheme gives writers the opportunity for a personal evaluation of their manuscript, and is an opportunity that I took for my first manuscript a few years ago. It was published a couple of years later, so I am living testament that the scheme works!
Every author who is a member is given the opportunity to have their author profile on the website, which makes you really feel part of something. RNA Author Profile
The regional Chapter meetings are a chance to meet other writers face-to-face, and ROMNA the online forum is also a great place for authors to share queries and ideas – everything from ‘point of view’ to maximising followers on Twitter. You can follow the RNA on Twitter @RNAtweets.
