Well, that’s not very nice! RWA may be into romance, but e-books—they have been declared wallflowers. According to the rules of the Rita/Golden Heart contest all submissions must “Be mass-produced by a non-Subsidy, non-Vanity Publisher in print book format.”
No romance for any of the above, and certainly no romance for e-books. Poor little things, rejected by the RWA itself. Dear Author pointed this out.
But we love you here at TeleRead, poor little romance e-books, no matter what the Romance Writers of America thinks.
