2021年薇薇安獎(The Vivian)得獎名單

去年因為蜜蘭案後續風波,美國羅曼史作家協會停辦了評選年度最佳羅曼史的RITA獎。後來曼協內部重組,也研議了新的評獎方式,從今年起不再頒發RITA獎,改由「薇薇安獎」(The Vivian)取代(向創會的薇薇安‧史蒂芬斯女士致敬啦~)。2021年的得獎名單昨天剛出爐,這邊趕緊跟WRN同學分享,供大家選書參考。粗體字是獎項得主,其他是入圍作品:

Loretta Chase、Mary Jo Putney

我也只知道這兩位作者 ^^;

其它的好陌生,近幾年台灣很少進新作者了 QQ

2: save your money    1: did not finish

Loretta Chase這個Difficult Dukes系列給我的感覺是,不過不失,正常發揮,但也未見精采。

這次應該很多人沒投件XD。重建信譽不容易,大家可能還在觀望新協會跟新獎項是不是真的有改進,或是對規則有疑慮(又或者其實也不在乎這個獎了)。不過美國羅曼史的出版量很大,我想能入圍得獎還是有一定水準。

(我本來期待近兩年的新秀如Evie Dunmore、Mia Vincy至少也該入圍才對,但好像根本沒參加這樣)
