Dani Atkins won the Romantic Novelist Association’s Jackie Collins Award for Romantic Thrillers this week for SIX DAYS. It was an Aria triumph all round at the RNA Awards this week, with two Aria authors on the shortlist. Emma Pass was also shortlisted for The Historical Romantic Novel Award for Before The Dawn.
Dani Atkins, who won The Contemporary Romantic Novel Award with A Sky Full of Stars last year, was thrilled to win and thanked the team at Head of Zeus for championing it.
One of the biggest night of the year for romance authors, the Aria team joined Dani to celebrate her win at the Leonardo City Hotel. It was a spectacular event that saw Katie Fforde being given a lifetime achievement award. Dani shared a special thanks to the Head of Zeus team in her acceptance speech: “I’d like to thank my publishers Head of Zeus and Aria for their vision for the book and the direction in which they guided it…There was a lot of love in house for the book and so thank you to everyone who helped and who championed it. Without you I wouldn’t be up here now. This award is really for you as much as it is for me”.
