28 Years and Going Strong
Welcome to a new year of the National Readers Choice Awards. First held back in 1991, the NRCA has consistently showcased the best in romance novels published each year. We will celebrate the winners of this year’s contest in New York City in July, 2019, though the books will have been published in 2018. I’m stepping back into my previous position as the NRCA Contest Chair and I look forward to working with our reader/judges, authors, and my category coordinators as we commerorate our 27th year.
All the best,
Silver James, 2018 NRCA Contest Chair
Congratulations to the 2017 winners of the 26th Annual National Readers’ Choice winners, announced at this year’s National Readers’ Choice Awards ceremony in Denver. Thank you to all of our entrants and judges for helping to make this contest the success it is. Sadly, I am stepping down as contest chair coordinator and refocusing my efforts in the Seattle area where I now reside.
