As a writer of romantic fiction, I’m proud to support the #RespectRomFic movement today and every day.

  • Romantic fiction has given me a lifetime of wonderful, uplifting stories to read; and talented, hard-working authors to follow.
  • It has provided me with my living via my best-selling and award-winning books, sold in many countries.
  • Romance is a best-selling genre, packed with chart-toppers.
  • Romantic fiction is about love and life.

Thank you to every reader, librarian, bookshop or supermarket buyer, media reviewer, blogger, literary festival, influencer and champion of love stories for helping make romantic fiction great.

And thank you, romantic fiction. Whether reading it or writing it, you’re my escape.

Lovely NetGalley reviews for #AnItalianIslandSummer @AvonBooksUK @BlakeFriedmann

It’s always nerve-racking when the first NetGalley reviews appear for a book so I’m thrilled that An Italian Island Summer’s first few are great. Phew! Here’s one I particularly like, from Reviewer 687577. The image is below but for ease of reading on devices, I’ll copy and paste the body of it here:

Sue Moorcroft writes so skilfully that she transports you into the story and the characters and setting jump off the page.  The relationship between Alfio and Ursula positively sizzles, and both their backstories and families make for an interesting and heart-warming read. As always, Sue doesn’t shy away from bringing the darker side of relationships into her stories, although the overall theme is always an uplifting one. Sue’s books are too good to rush. I always like to take my time reading them, taking in the scenery, getting to know the characters, enjoying the story unfold towards its delicious, satisfactory ending.  A really enjoyable read.
