The culmination of the 35th annual Romance Writers of America (RWA) conference, held in New York City at the Marriott Marquis, July 22–25, was, as always, a thrill. But this year proved a bit unconventional as well. Streaming live for the first time, the 2015 RWA RITA Awards ceremony was fun and entertaining, with the RITAs for best works in a dozen categories presented simultaneously with the related Golden Heart award for best submitted manuscript. In previous years, the Golden Hearts were handed out in their entirety, followed by the RITA winners. Attendees seemed to appreciate the new arrangement, keeping like with like. Among the nominees were many self-published titles: the wave of what’s to come. Host Lisa Kleypas kept the pace, commenting on the authorial efforts to achieve publication and ultimately award recognition. “Rewriting is always easier than writing, in the way that drowning is easier than swimming.” And without further ado, here are the 2015 RITA Award and Golden Heart winners:
