RWA is thrilled to announce the finalists for the 2013 ROMA award.
Our Romance Media Award (ROMA) began in 2006 to recognise outstanding reporting of romance. It is open to Australian print and electronic media for coverage focusing on some aspect of romance novels, romance writing, or romance publishing.
We’re thrilled to report that coverage of romance is improving. The judging panel this year noted the continued positive representation of romance writing in media where finally myths are being busted or not mentioned at all! The finalists for 2013 are:
Happily Ever After by John Affleck–Gold Coast Bulletin
Ebooks Let Quirky Writers Shine by Anita Beaumont –Newcastle Herald
Playing The Field by Rosemary Neill –Weekend Australian
The Rise of Rural Erotica by Caroline Overington and Kerry Warren–Womens Weekly
Congratulations to all the finalists and best of luck!
