Interim RITA Reader Ballot Winner ** Updated **

The RITA finalists were announced last month. We wanted to devise a contest that would allow readers to feel more connected to the RITA Award which is considered by romance authors to be the Oscar of the romance genre. Any reader can fill out a ballot and submit their guesses for who will be announced the RITA winner in July. The reader’s ballot closest to being right will win a basket full of RITA winning books. Publishers, like Dorchester, and authors have been extremely generous in donating RITA nominated books to give away. Today we are going to give away our first two sets of books. The first set of four books from Dorchester which includes the following goes to our 100th ballot filled in by Stacy S.

Updated to add: the 48th Ballot whose name I do not know but whose email I have is the winner. Please fill out a ballot if you haven’t already. I received a delicous box from Harlequin on Friday. Much drooling ensued.

The ballot is very easy. It consists of 12 drop down boxes that provide the names of the author, book and publishing house. You need only provide your email address to be entered. The whole process shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes. We hope that if you haven’t already filled out a ballot, you will do so.

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
