This week has been the Romance Writers’ of America’s annual conference. Each year the highlight of the conference is the awarding of the RITA®s and Golden Hearts®. The RITAs are published books nominated as the best in their category (contemporary single title, contemporary series, romantic suspense, historical, paranormal, etc.) and the Golden Hearts are the best unpublished books by hopefully-soon-to-be-published writers.
It’s the first time a Carina Press author’s book has been nominated, and therefore the first time a Carina Press author has won a RITA . Fiona’s Boomerang Bride was competing with works by authors such as Barbara Frethy, Jacqui D’Alessandro and Lori Wilde, so no small victory for her. Congratulations, Fiona!
In celebration, I’m going to give away a brand new print copy of Boomerang Bride to a commenter. The contest will close at 12:01 a.m. August 1st (that’s Wednesday morning Eastern Time!)
