Jacquis Award

Posted in Uncategorized

Yesterday, I got an email informing me that I’d won an award, and here’s a little graphic I could put on my website. And I was like, rock on, I won an award.

Text reads: Jacquis Winner 2016 Abigail Barnette for First Time. There is a black bar at the bottom that reads "Legendary Women" and a stylized logo of some books in red on the left side of the banner.


Legendary Women is the site that profiled me as a professional Fifty Shades of Grey hater in 2015, and this year they decided that First Time should be recognized as a good example of feminist literature. I’m absolutely delighted to be in such good company, and I’m pleased that Ian and Penny got some spotlight here. Usually Sophie and Neil get all the attention.
