RITA Rage

My morning began with trying to enter the RITAs, Romance Writers of America’s writing contest for published novels. I love Devil’s Angel, and if it ends as my only historical novel, I want more exposure and recognition for it.

The site programmer obviously didn’t think about what would happen if 10,000 people all tried to submit their entries and pay their fees simultaneously. Since Devil’s Angel is going into the Historical romance category and that is always one of the popular ones, I wanted to make sure I got my entry in. The contest system got hung up for quite some time–I think it tested every one of my seven virtues!

I ended up going the old skool route of printing the PDF, handwriting my entry, then scanning it in and emailing it to the contest coordinator. At this point, I’m not sure if I’ve entered once or four times, but I think I’m good!

It’s a long shot category for unknown authors, but I’ll get to put my book in front of five new people (first round judges) and that’s alays a good thing. Now to cross my fingers that Samhain will be able to get early print copies of Devil’s Angel!
