Making It Right...

For those of you who may not know, many authors were disqualified from the RITAs this year due to the phrase "mass-produced" being slippedinto the rules. That small phrase effectively eliminates all those whoare epubbed, but have a print book. There are other inequities in RWA that have yet to be addressed as well. Until now.

A good friend of mine, Kristen Painter (founder of Romance Divas and GH finalist in '05 & '07), has created the above petition in the hopes of changing these inequities for the better. She intends to present this petition and the garnered signatures at the general meeting in DC this year.

Go, sign, and then tell every writer/author you know. Pass it on to your friends, your other writing groups, your chapters, who ever you know that might be interested in seeing these changes occur.
