Jackie Collins and Kate Mosse have been made CBEs and Joanne Harris has been made an MBE.
Joanne Harris (pictured), recently a Writing Magazine cover star, said: 'It is always nice for the world of literature when writers get an acknowledgement or an honour. It gets the message to people that writing is important and that it deserves praise.'
In the world of arts and entertainment, amongst the well-known names who received honours were: Blackadder duo Tony Robinson (knighthood) and Rowan Atkinson (CBE); artist Anish Kapoor (knighthood); artist Grayson Perry (CBE);  comedian Rob Brydon (MBE), and singers Aled Jones (OBE), Adele (MBE) and PJ Harvey (MBE).
