Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 551 comments I'm in! And it looks like it's much more my kind of award right now :-) I'm so glad I checked out the RITA shelf. I started a J.B. Robb book yesterday and am now 30% done. So it looks like I can still use it :-)
BTW: The 1st HOLT Medallion link doesn't work and if I go to this link https://virginiaromancewriters.com/ho... there're only rules for this award and no winners. Do I something wrong or was it changed since you created the link?
