I'm being driven absolutely crazy by my email server -- it's letting in the mails, slowly, but refusing to let me reply to them and I'm desperate to send congratulations to so many of my friends who're listed in the Short Contemporary Category for the Rita this year.

Two HARLEQUIN ROMANCES! Both Jessica Hart and Barbara Hannay are former winners in the Traditional Category. This just proves that HR can stand against the best in the business.

There's one of Anne McAllister's fabulus Antonides books in there, too. Way to go, Anne!

Brilliant to see a Medical from Lilian Darcy in the line-up, too. Lilian is no stranger to the Rita lists, either.

Congratulations to all of you! I won't be in Washington, but I'll be there in spirit, cheering you all on.

Here's the full list --
