Time to Curl Up....
with a Great Read

As the nights draw ever in, what could be better than curling up with a good, warming romp? ... ok, and a glass of red … and maybe a bar of chocolate … or two. Our ‘Choc Lit’ section is dedicated to quality women’s fiction.




There’s a wonderfully friendly yet professional approach at Choc Lit where authors are looked after in a way that doesn’t always happen in the larger publishing conglomerates.  Their debut novel, The Importance of Being Emma by Juliet Archer was winner of the Big Red Reads Fiction Award 2011 and in 2012 Jane Lovering won the overall Romantic Novel of the Year award and Evonne Wareham the Joan Hessayon New Writer’s Award. Wow! Add these to the three awards in 2011 and two in March 2012 with Highland Storms winning the Best Historical Romantic novel and Please Don’t Stop the Music Best Romantic Comedy novel of the year awards they are definitley on the right track.

Happy authors make good books:
christine courtenay"Choc Lit is a wonderful publisher to work for. Being with a small independent publisher means you feel like you're a part of the process every step of the way. You work as a team and everyone at Choc Lit is a delight, from the marketing director and editor to the cover designer and the enthusiastic reading panel.  And the other authors are great too!" Christina Courtenay
