Romance Writers of America RITA award

This past week was the Romance Writers of America conference held in Washington DC. For several days romance writers from the newbie to the long time seasoned pro gathered to learn, share and network.
On Saturday night was the RITA and the Golden Heart awards. The RITA award is to recognize outstanding romance novels published in 2008. The Golden Heart award is to recognize outstanding manuscripts by unpublished authors. The award show was held in the ballroom of the Marriot Wardman Park hotel. Its a night for dressing up and celebrating the romance genre.


This year I was honored to present the RITA for Best Inspirational Romance. The award went to Susan May Warren for the book Finding Stefanie.

Congratulations Susan!
