The Romance Writers of America have Spoken!

Not only am I a huge supporter of newbie and indie authors, but I am also a fan of fantasy, futuristic and paranormal romance books. So when the two are combined…

– BOOM! –

… my world becomes that little bit brighter.

Today, I found out about the 2013 Prism Contest for Published Authors and I was mighty intrigued. This is a special award category for published authors who write futuristic, fantasy, time travel and/or paranormal romance books.

While a lot of the authors from the list below are unknown to me, I have read a lot of books written by the award’s past winners. Ergo, some of these lovely lady writers might possibly rock my world too. Ergo… ergo, they might also rock your world one day too.

imageSo roll out the red carpet! The RWA even have lavish golden statues à la Oscar-esque to hand out to winners. Ain’t they pretty!

And keep an eye out for these authors – who knows how fabulous they might grow to be in the future?
