The F Word is a finalist—twice over!—in the Best Banter Contest, sponsored by the Mid-Michigan Romance Writers of America.

What does twice over mean? It means that two different scenes in the book became finalists in the contest! (The F Word was entered in the contemporary romance, published author category.)

Professional editors and agents are judging the final round. My fingers are crossed that I’ll be able to report a win in the next month. But for now, I’m so, so pleased that the MMRWA enjoyed reading my banter as much as I enjoyed writing it!
