2014 RITA Winners


2014 RITA Winners

Another year has come and gone and RWA has announced it’s newest RITA winners.

For those of you who do not know, RWA (Romance Writers of America) holds a yearly competition to find the best romance book in each genre that has been written by an RWA member. To learn the specifics of this contest click here: The RITA Award

The winners are announced at their annual conference. I didn’t get the opportunity to attend this year but believe me, attending an RWA Conference is on my top “to-do” list! This years convention was held in San Antonio, Texas. From all the pictures and tweets floating around it looks like it was an amazing time. (check out #rwa14) Next years conference will be held in New York! I think I just might have to go visit the Big Apple 😉
