I’ve had a few good ones this last month. Some personal, some professional and some happening to people I love.
Professionally, BLOOD LAW is doing well. The first week it hit #5 on the Barnes and Noble trade romance list and # 8 on Borders’ trade romance list. Week two, it hit # 4 on the Barnes and Noble trade romance list, # 18 on the Borders trade romance list and # 23 on Book Scan’s trade romance list. The first week was a huge surprise, week two? Wow, this book has legs! I could not have done it without the support of so many of you.
Thank you for sticking with me. Thank you for your unwavering support, but mostly, thank you for your friendship. Lists come and go, but friendships sustain us through the good times and the bad times. I am truly blessed.
On the personal front, my son is kicking ass in bootcamp! I knew he would do well, but there was always a part of me that worried he would be miserable. And while he misses us terribly, he is thriving. My youngest is a ‘tough nugget’ (his big sister’s description of him). He’s a good man. The Corps is lucky he chose them. He will do them proud. He’s almost half way through boot, and his letters remain confident, upbeat and entertaining.
He mentions the struggles of some of the other recruits and the talks he has had with them, encouraging them not to give up, too keep moving forward, to persevere. He reminds them that the quickest way out is Graduation. As a mother, that makes me proudest.
I wanted to take a moment and pimp a very good fried of mine, Josie Brown. Why? Well, one she’s my girl, and two, she just released her book, HOUSEWIFE ASSASSINS HANDBOOK. I’ve read this story and all I can say is, it is a must read! Josie is so damn clever she gives me a complex! I cannot say it loud enough:
GO. BUY. THIS. BOOK! YOU WILL THANK ME!
Seriously. Treat yourself to some fun.
Now, how about you? What good things are happening in your neck of the woods?
