Calisa Rhose ~ Check out the 2nd annual IDA winners

Osiyo~

I haven’t blogged on my own Ranch for a while so I wanted to do a special today. As a lot of you are now aware, the Oklahoma RWA chapter hosts the National Reader’s Choice Awards and just finished with our 22nd (?) year of this awesome contest where readers choose their favorite authors. Those lucky winners are awarded their prizes at RWA Nationals each summer. That contest is for print books only.

We thought ebooks were not getting the recognition they and those wonderful authors deserved, so we decided to do something about that. Last year OKRWA started a new contest called International Digital Award (IDA) and it was a rousing success. This year was also a great success but we need to get the word out to more epublished authors. I want to introduce you to this year’s winners and their books. Now you know I don’t usually host erotica on the Ranch, but I’m gonna for this event so I apologize up front to those who might be offended. But for the sake of being fair to all our winners, I will post ALL ebooks including that category.

So here we go with our FIRST PLACE WINNERS!
