Romance Writers of America (RWA) announced the 2019 RITA® Award winners on July 26 in New York City. This highest award of distinction in romance fiction recognizes excellence in published romance novels and novellas.
About the RITA Award:
The RITA is the highest award of distinction in romance fiction. Recognizing excellence in published romance novels and novellas, up to 2,000 novels are entered in the competition in 13 categories. Following a round of judging by published romance authors, qualifying finalist entries advance to a final round. The RWA announces the RITA finalists, then the judges evaluate and score these novels. Each year, the RITA Award winners are announced at a special black-tie ceremony at the RWA Annual Conference.
