The 2013 Romance Writers of America RITA and Golden Heart awards ceremony takes place Saturday evening, at RWA Nationals in Atlanta. GHOST PLANET is nominated for "best first book."
If you're interested in following results, RWA will be live tweeting (https://twitter.com/romancewriters, #RWA13). I can't make it to the ceremony this year, so that's how I'll be following! (Although my editor is going to try to Skype me in as well.)
Dear Author is running interviews with "best first book" finalists this week. You can read those here.
Also, Smart Bitches Trashy Books hosted a RITA challenge, where blog readers signed up to review finalists. Author Willa Blair (Linda Williams) wrote a fabulous "A" review for GHOST PLANET, and you can read that here.
It's an exciting week! Envy and safe travels to all those on the way to Atlanta!
