Leap into a Love Story for Leap Year Day 29th February

26 February 2024

We will be sharing the love this Leap Year Day as RNA members will be leaving gift wrapped books in public places up and down the country for booklovers to take home and fall in love with.

Members of the public are being asked to look out for books with the Leap into a Love Story label attached, take them home, read and enjoy and then get in touch with us via social media channels to say which book they found and where they found it.

In addition, the London Chapter of the RNA is hosting an exciting Live event for RNA members –  “In Conversation with New York Times Bestselling author, Tessa Bailey”.

Details on how to contact the RNA are on the label.


The Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA) is a professional body primarily for writers of romantic fiction. Founded in 1960 to provide a voice for romance authors and to be a network for writers, it continues to raise the prestige of romantic fiction and encourage romantic authorship. Their 1000+ membership includes writers across the spectrum of commercial and women’s fiction, along with publishing industry professionals, booksellers, and book reviewers. In addition to organising annual publishing awards, they also host a range of workshops, talks, networking events, a three-day annual conference, and provide support to unpublished authors through their New Writers’ Scheme.
