Melissa Nathan Award confirms 2010 shortlist

14th April 2010

The shortlist for the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance has been released, with six authors competing for the prize.

I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk, Trisha Ashley's Wedding Tiers and Tug of Love by Allie Spencer were included among the titles nominated for the prize, which is the only UK-based award which focuses on the comedy romance genre.

Katie Fforde's Love Letters, Moonlight in Odessa by Janet Skeslien Charles and Danny King's Blue Collar are the remaining titles shortlisted for the honour.

'The judging panel features the writer and comedienne Jo Brand, mega-selling novelists Joanna Trollope and Sophie Kinsella, actor and comedienne Morwenna Banks and actor and television presenter Liza Tarbuck,' the organisers added.

In 2009, The Marriage Bureau for Rich People by Farahad Zama took home the Melissa Nathan Award, while other previous winners include Marian Keyes and Lisa Jewell.

The Romantic Novelists' Association honoured Trollope and Maeve Binchy last month, when it gave the authors lifetime achievement accolades at the Pure Passion Awards.
