Congratulations to the R*BY finalists!rby

For all of those not in the know, every year the brilliant women (and a few supporting men) at the Romance Writers of Australia award the best of romance written by Australian and New Zealand authors. Much like the Academy Awards, these awards are highly desired, and the awards ceremony has its fair share of glamour, champagne and the occasional (happy) tears. Oh, and like the Academy Awards, the Romantic Book of the Year awards have a nickname too – the ‘Rubies’.

Below are the finalists for the RWA’s Romantic Book of the Year competition:

Long Romance
Anne Gracie Bride by Mistake
Helen Lacey Marriage Under The Mistletoe
Sarah Mayberry More Than One Night
Stephanie Laurens The Lady Risks All
Romantic Elements
Elise K Ackers Small Town Storm
Fiona McCallum Wattle Creek
Helene Young Burning Lies
Tricia Stringer Queen of the Road

Anne Oliver The Morning After The Wedding Before
Melanie Milburne Enemies at the Altar
Nicola Marsh Marrying the Enemy
Yvonne Lindsay A Forbidden Affair

Congratulations to all the finalists – I look forward to celebrating you all at the awards night on August 17th!
