RITA scores

So, I didn't final in the RITA. But I did get my scores, which show I didn't do horribly badly. Well, not completely. A final score of 38.7, out of a possible 45, ain't bad at all. Two judges really loved the book, one giving a perfect score (9) and one nearly perfect (8.9). One thought it was okay (7.5) and two weren't hugely impressed (6.8 and 6.5). Probably too much sex. This, as I have argued exhaustively before, is partly my fault in entering an erotic romance in a competition run by an organisation that still hasn't decided whether it's porn or not. But I won't get into that now.

Fact is, Almost Human scored in the top quarter, so I'm fairly happy with that.
