The Romance Writers of America has posted its list of RITA award finalists! Congratulations to all those nominated, but especially to all the authors of paranormal romance and urban fantasy novels on the list — I’ll be there in the audience on August 2nd cheering and applauding for you!!

Dear Author has an interesting open thread on the RITAs, with some discussion of the world-building required in paranormal romance. 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the paranormal romance nominees — have you read any of the nominated titles? Are any of your favorite novels from the past year missing from this list?  What would your “dream RITA ballot” look like?



  1. I just took a look at the only one on the ist that I’ve read is Raintree:Haunted…..and it deserves the sopt!!! There were so many others, though that I would have expected to see in the Paranormal romance slot!!

  2. Nocturnes made a great showing in the finalists, with Linda Howard, Maureen Child and Nina Bruhns. Go, Nocturnes!
