2007 RITAs and Golden Hearts
The list of RITA award winners is now up at the Romance Writers of America's newly revamped website.
The list of winners of Golden Heart awards (for authors of as yet unpublished manuscripts) is also up there and one of the winners is Bronwyn Clarke.
I'd like to congratulate all the winners, but I'm giving a special mention to Bron because she's a fellow romance scholar. She's completing a PhD at the University of New England in Armidale, New South Wales, Australia and her 'research project will explore internet communities of romance readers and writers and their perspectives on the genre'. You can read more about her research here and if you'd like to help Bronwyn with her research please read this page and then fill out a response to her survey and comment on her research blog (not all of the posts are related to the research; some are more personal, so you may have to do a little bit of scrolling to find the questions).
