And the RITA Finalists are...

Yesterday was an exciting day for most romance authors who entered their books in the annual RITA competition. It was for me. I spent the day refreshing my screen, waiting to see the name of each author as they were announced. I don't think there was a Love Inspired author out there who was still sitting in their chair when the Love Inspired authors were announced. It was very exciting to see Love Inspired with such a great showing in the Inspirational category. Here is the list of Inspirational authors who finaled.
