Author Up for Prestigious Writing Award

Adding to this prominent industry is novelist, Sylvia Day, a finalist for this years most prestigious and recognized RITAź Award, the highest award of excellence in the romance novel industry.

Houston, TX, April 04, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Romance Writers of America® (RWA®) is a professional trade association for aspiring and published romance fiction authors, with over 9,500 members nationwide, who are major contributors to the publishing industry with book sales totaling over $1.2 billion dollars a year. Adding to this prominent industry is California resident, Sylvia Day, a finalist for this year’s most prestigious and recognized RITA® Award.

The RITA Award is sponsored and presented by Romance Writers of America – and is the highest award of excellence in the romance novel industry. The award itself is a golden statuette, but the industry-wide prestige and promotional opportunities that come with winning a RITA are the real prizes. The RITA Award Ceremony is the final event of RWA’s 27th Annual National Conference, which will be held in Dallas, TX the week of July 9th.

Day, a full-time writer, has been writing for three years with twelve published novels. She hopes her Kensington Publishing Corp. published novel, Bad Boys Ahoy!, will bring her ultimate validation in winning a RITA because this award is judged by her writing peers. She credits much of her success as a writer to the powerful role model provided by her single-parent mother, who taught her to both work hard and to love reading.

Readers enjoy Day’s novels for their portrayals of strong, independent, intelligent heroines and the alpha males who are worthy of them. She writes about women who don’t need or want to be rescued and men confident enough to find such self-reliance irresistibly appealing.

Day tried to make her Kensington Publishing Corp. romance a story that will move readers, a story they can’t put down, and that they’ll remember after they finish the book. Hopefully Day will have a night she will always remember after the 2007 RITA Awards are announced.
