Now, we all know the Iron Fey Series is a huge hit, not only to young adults but to readers everywhere. While on Twitter today, I happened to stumble upon a link that I wanted to share with all of you. The Iron King, book one in the iron fey series, has been named a finalist in two categories of The Romance Writer's of America Rita and Golden Heart Awards.
The 2011 Rita awards honors books published in 2010 and The 2011 Golden Heart Awards honors manuscripts not yet published of 2011. There were over 1,100 Novels and Novellas submitted, so it is a great honor to be selected as a finalist.
The Iron King is one of seven in the running for the RITA Young Adult Romance Category, and also one of nine in the RITA Best First Book Category.
The winners will be announced on July 1st, 2011 at the RITA and Golden Hearts Award Ceremony in New York to be held during the RWA Conference.
Congradulations Julie! We wish you the best of luck, and hope the judges see everything The Iron King has to offer!
