    I am really excited about the Kresley Cole win. I am kind of disappointed with the contemporary category because Victoria Dahl’s Talk Me Down is amazing.

    Looks like there was some stiff competition in some of those categories. I do wonder how an author being a popular favorite affects scoring. It seems like it would take extra effort to score books by those authors. I can imagine myself relaxing into “known quantity” mode rather than a more critical “I hope this isn’t crap” mode.

    I actually recognize quite a few of the nominated books this year. There’ve been years I’ve never heard of most of them. I am going to try to read the ones I’ve heard of, whether they won or not.

    Nice wins! Congratulations to all including the nominees.

    What’s the difference between “Contemporary Series: Suspense/Adventure” and “Romantic Suspense”, by the way?

    I hope they will introduce a category for LGBT romances to their RITA contest next year if they still aren’t willing to mix those with the usual categories.

    The “talk” is that you aren’t likely to win on your first nomination in the “big” categories (including single title contemporary, historical or Regency). Many of my favorites were first time nominees, with the exception of Sherry Thomas — and I’m thrilled for her.

    I’m so excited for the authors who were nominated for the first time, even though they didn’t win. It’s a huge validation of what they’re doing. And it sounds like the ceremony was a great party; hope I’m there next year.

    @Maili:
    Maili, I think “contemporary series” is RWA code for category.

    Oh, and I totally agree about LGBT romance. Although as long as they exclude digital pubs, that will be a thin category.

    Actually, e-pubs are NOT excluded. In fact, one of the Best First Book nominees was an e-book from Ellora’s Cave. So there you go. Things are changing. :)

    HUGE congrats to all the finalists, and the winners. I hope Sherry Thomas is celebrating huge!!

    I’m so with you on that. I hated that JQ book and Scandal was one of my favorite reads of last year, and will be in my Top 10 romances list.

    I’m bummed for Carolyn, because she so deserved it, not that JQ isn’t wonderful, but I really hated What Happens in London.

    Congratulations to all the other winners, too.

    LOL, Ridley. Tell us how you really feel. But seriously, I have to agree. I thought Scandal was so exquisitely written.

    I love Julia Quinn but I thought What Happened in London was a bit of a phone in effort, imo. Actually, I think even the Kate Noble book was better. But I still think Scandal got robbed.

    And I adore anything Kristan Higgins so I am happy about her win, but I actually thought Jill Shalvis’ could have also won. I liked it a tick better.
