Flying High



I got the BEST news from my editor yesterday! And if you have ever even HEARD of Facebook or Twitter, you probably know it already. (I couldn't contain myself)  But I am going to repeat it anyway.


E-mail Heading: B&N List Just Arrived

THE AZALEA ASSAULT is #43 on the overall mass list, and #8 on the mystery list.
You are officially a NATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR (and it will say so on BB).
Congratulations!!!!”


BB stands for Begonia Bribe, second in the series, due out in April. I have been happy dancing for the last 24 hours, and FINALLY feel worthy of my guest spot today. Overall mass list means mass market paperback and the website only lists through #20, but I believe Emily!

I am over on Escape with Dollycas. Lori has a GREAT book review blog. She is totally organized and has had a darned impressive list of authors. She offered me a spot and I was thrilled to accept, and then TOTALLY intimidated. But there I am... You should go see THAT (and look around her blog and be awed and amazed)

Haha, were you so excited that you both repeated your entire post as your title AND forgot to actually post the pictures from the party? Well, if so, it's understandable AND well-deserved. Yay you! Couldn't be happier for you, Tami :D

Oh, I'm so excited for you, my love. Yay!!!! I'm FINALLY going to make it to B&N tomorrow and I'm fighting myself not to call and reserve my copy, because I want to walk up to the shelf and go, "OMFC, there is MY GIRL'S BOOK." And then fall over. And then resist the urge not to do a naked dance up the aisle.
