Romance, Historical, Contemporary, Paranormal, Young Adult, Book reviews, industry news, and commentary from a reader's point of view


There is no ebook post today because today is Selection Sunday for the Dear Author Bitchery Writing Award for Hella Authors or something like that. We started this tournament three years ago with Sarah from the Smart Bitches.

Later today we will announce the finalists and allow you to start filling out your brackets. For a look at the tentative finalists head on over to DABWAHA.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Jane, if you don’t mind, I’d like to take this opportunity to wave at all the readers that get it wrong every year – And We Know Who We Are – and to suggest a WTF/pity-party immediately following the first round of voting.

    I always play and I always lose big time. My goal this year is not to come in last!

    I was so close last year (#6!). I hope I’ll win something this year because I want to chest bump and talk trash. I’ve had a horrible couple of months so yes, I’m using my I Deserve It Card.

    I did pretty well last year too, though not as well as you, Gennita. I was #35. I doubt I will do as well this year though. It feels like it was a lucky fluke.

    But this year there will be a prize for last place.

    I came in 263rd last year in the main tournament. I did much better (24th) in the second chance tournament. So I hope we have one of those again this year.
