The Wenches are happy. Joanna is happy. Joanna's publisher is happy. The Black Hawk is happy. Yesterday, Joanna won a RITA for her 2011 historical romance, The Black Hawk. The announcement was made yesterday at the Romance Writers of America annual conference. Joanna was so sure she wouldn't win that she hadn't even left room in her suitcase for the RITA. We suspect Joanna has now found room for that little statuette in her luggage! Big congratulations, Joanna. Couldn't happen to a nicer person!
