Emerald Finalists

We are delighted to announce the finalists in this year’s Emerald Award.

The Emerald is our annual award for RWA members who are unpublished in fiction over 10k words.  It is unique among our contests in that it requires the submission of a full manuscript (for those who make it to the second round).  So these three people have made it through two rounds and a lot of volunteer reading by dedicated romance readers to get to this stage.

So without further ado, let us congratulate (in alphabetical order):

Laura Boon

Suzanne Cass

Frances dall’Alba

The finalists’ entries will now go to the final judge, Sue Brockhoff, Head of Publishing, Harlequin Australia.  The placings will be announced at the awards dinner at our conference in August.

Thanks to our contest manager, judges co-ordinator, volunteer judges and all the fabulous RWA volunteers who make our contest season happen.
