It has been quite a fun week.
Except for the most obvious drawback which is that my husband is in Maine.
And worse!! (Okay not really worse, but . . .) He took my iPhone with him!! Those of you who know me IRL know that my iPhone and I are attached at the . . . er . . . hand.:D I take it everywhere I go and use it constantly. (For thing like *koffkoff* obsessively stalking my Amazon page.:D) I also have tons of information in it that I generally take for granted. Like phone numbers and addresses. D'oh!
But the thing that really made me twitch is that both my agent and my editor have both finally been trained to call my cell phone before my home phone. Which means that when my editor called this week to let me know that Wings had managed it 10th (!) week on the NYT list, guess who got the good news first?
That's right--my husband.
Which is okay. He deserves to get the news first once in a while.:)
But WOW! Ten weeks!! I have to admit, getting double digits on the list was one of my goals . . . on of my "well I know this is never going to happen but heck, every writer needs a pie in the sky, completely unattainable goal" kind of goal. And you guys made it happen!!!!
Thank you!!! ALL of you! The people who have been reading this blog for *counts* wow! Almost four years!! And those of you who just got here by Googling my name. Thank you! And no matter what part you played--bought the book at a store, ordered it off Amazon, borrowed it from the library, turned it face out at the store (you know who you are!! *blows kisses*), or just told someone about it. It is very clear to me that every little bit helps, so thank you!!
Honestly, I dont expect to stay on much longer. If nothing else, there are some killer Fall books coming up!!! But I have sure been enjoying it while it lasts!
The other fun thing that happened this week is that Harper did the photo shoot for my sequel's cover yesterday!!! (No, I haven't seen the pic yet.;)) But I tell you, I have one dedicated editor. Yesterday at seven in the morning Tara was standing waist deep in the OCEAN, helping with the shoot. Wow!! I love her. *swoon* So yeah, I am all excited about my next cover now. My cover for Wings is, IMO amazing!!! So I am just thrilled to see what the incredible art department does with this one!!
So please come share my giddiness!!! I want to know what awesome thing happened to YOU this week!!! Have at it!!
