Lunch in Soho

L-R Judy Astley, Katie Fforde, Sue Moorcroft and Adele Parks

Yesterday, Midas Books put on a great lunch in Soho House for journalists from women’s monthly magazines to launch the anthology written by members of the Romantic Novelists’ Association to celebrate the Association’s fiftieth anniversary, LOVES ME, LOVES ME NOT. As you can see, it’s a handsome volume.

And I might be biased but I think it contains some fabulous stories – 44 of them, in fact.

It was a great lunch – any lunch featuring chocolate brownies has my vote – and terrific company. I sat between Cath Burke, the editor at Mira who has nursed the project through with unflappable enthusiasm, and Fanny Blake from Woman and Home magazine and across the table from Victoria Gallagher, book news editor of The Bookseller.

Katie Fforde, the RNA’s chairman, Adele Parks and Judy Astley represented the contributors to LOVES ME, LOVES ME NOT. A few of us went on to celebrate with a further glass of wine – blagging our way into a part of the club that is for members only – and rounded the day off as we British must, with a pot of tea.

No more brownies, though. Curses.
