2011 Awards: winners announcement #1

11 February 2012

We are very excited to be hosting the 4th annual Australian Romance Readers Awards this evening at Cello’s Restaurant in Sydney.

The restaurant looks beautiful and the guests are having a wonderful time. Following entree of Tandoori chicken tenderloins or grilled pesto coated lamb fillet, we have jumped right in to announcing the first lot of award winners. Here are the details:

The Favourite Paranormal Romance of 2011 is Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. Thank you to Galaxy Bookshop for once again sponsoring this award. The award was presented by Allison Rogers from Galaxy and, at Nalini’s request, was accepted on her behalf by one of her reader fans, Kate Cuthbert.

The Favourite Sci-Fi, Urban Fantasy or Futuristic Romance of 2011 is Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh. Thank you to Carina Press for sponsoring this award. The award was presented by Carina Press authors Shannon Curtis and Rachael Johns. Accepting the award on behalf of Nalini was another of her reader fans, Pamela Diaz.

The Favourite Short Category Romance of 2011 is With This Fling… by Kelly Hunter. Thank you to Harlequin Australia for sponsoring this award. The award was presented by Cristina Lee of Harlequin Australia and was accepted on behalf of Kelly Hunter by Paula Roe.

For all those ARRA members who couldn’t make it along to the awards dinner, leave a comment on any of the blog articles posted this evening and you will go in the draw to win one of two book prizes.
