This year's Romantic Novelist Association Awards saw Veronica Henry (agented by LAW's Araminta Whitley) triumph as winner of Romantic Novel of the Year with A Night on the Orient Express (Orion). The novel is set on a picturesque train journey from London to Venice, as Veronica draws on her experiences as writer-in-residence for the Venice Simpleton Orient Express. After beginning her career script writing with major television series such as Heartbeat (ITV), Doctors and Holby City (both BBC), Veronica Henry has gone on to write 11 novels, including Love on the Rocks and The Beach Hut, both published by Orion. The award judges were Sarah Broadhurst (The Bookseller), Alison Flood (The Guardian), Jane Mays (The Daily Mail), Karin Stoecker (previously of Harlequin Books) and Chris White (Waterstones), who described Veronica Henry as the 'most accomplished and most romantic' of writers.
Debut author Jennifer McVeigh (also agented by Araminta Whitley) won in the Epic Book of the Year category with The Fever Tree (published by Penguin), a sweeping historical novel set in the diamond mines of South Africa. Jennifer McVeigh is a Bath Spa Creative Writing alumna, whose novel was also chosen for Richard and Judy's Spring Book Club in 2013.
Our literary agents are happy to consider submissions from new authors, but please be aware that we are a small literary agency with a busy client list and we take on only a handful of new clients each year from the thousands of approaches made to us, many of which are from established writers and artists. If you are a new author, please read the submission guidelines before doing anything else.
