Congratulations Fiona Lowe & Carina Press 17

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  and the Golden Hearts are the best unpublished books by hopefully-soon-to-be-published writers.

This year Boomerang Bride by Fiona Lowe,  a Carina Press book was nominated in the “Contemporary Single Title” category.  Last night the winners were announced and Fiona’s name was called out!

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!)

    Congratulations to Fiona & Carina Press!! I’ve become a big fan of Carina Press. Every Carina Press book I’ve read has been terrific. I don’t know of another publisher that has as much consistent quality work. : )

    Congrats to Ms. Lowe and Carina Press! I’ve read quite a few books by Carina over the years. In answer to the question: very recently I’ve read Serious Play by Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon.

    Congratulations to Fiona Lowe + Carina Press! The last Carina Press book I’ve read was When Harriet Came Home by Coleen Kwan. And the next one I’m probably going to read is Slow Summer Kisses by Shannon Stacey, which is currently waiting for me on my Nook 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    How nice. Congrats to her! I really enjoy Carina press books and I love their web site. I love their book covers – they show what the book is really about. And I really enjoy being able to read an excerpt to see if l like the writing style. And bless them for all those millions of niches and genres to choose from on the left side of the screen…
