RITA Judging

I got a stack of books to read and judge for RWA's national RITA award contest. I often find a gem that I wouldn't ordinary have bought or read, so I always look forward to this. As we all know: So many books, so little time....

  3. Cheryl I'm doing book reviews for a group. Do you have to be well-known to be a judge? You're write
    (pun intended) so many books, so little time. But I love the challenge of finding a gem or nugget and spreading the word!

  4. Lou, there is a yearly contest called Reader's Choice out of Oklahoma (I think) that uses readers for judges. The RITA is judged by our peers--fellow writers.

    There are many websites doing book reviews. Some of them may need reviewers, and you get books or galleys in advance!
