Every year, the Romance Writers of America (RWA) nominates the best in romance for the coveted RITA award, named after their first president, Rita Clay Estrada.  This year, RITA nominees did something that hasn’t been done before— the authors and their books were trending topics on Twitter yesterday and today as the nominees were announced.

Categories, this year, include Best First Book, Erotic Romance, Young Adult Romance, Romantic Suspense, and Paranormal Romance. You can view the full list of 2018 RITA nominees and finalists on the Romance Writers of America website. Winners will be announced later in the year and awarded at a black-tie ceremony during the 2018 RWA Conference in Denver, Colorado.
