The RNA Romantic Novel Awards submission process will open on Monday June 5th 2023, for novels published (or to be published) between January 1st and December 31st, 2023.


We do not accept print versions of books as entries. All entries must be available in PDF or EPUB format.

- Please read the full rules before submitting your entry, and check that publishers/agents and authors haven't planned to enter the same book. We are not able to give refunds if entries are duplicated/entered in error/have been entered but do not adhere to our rules and regulations.

We do not accept payment by cheque or bank transfer. All entries must be paid for by debit/credit card, Google Pay or Apple Pay.

The awards will close to entries at midnight on September 30th, 2023 or when the cap of 500 entries is reached, whichever comes first. Good luck!
