A Big Thank You

December, the last day of the month, the last day of the year. This also marks the last day my books are officially on the bookshelves – just 21 trips to Wal-Mart and Target later Tomorrow my book will reside only on the cyber bookshelves.

The time has flown! I want to thank you for sharing the first time I spied my book at Wal-Mart. My first booksigning. My first road trip and of course, my first time to creatively shelve my books (and those of friends). I’ve contacted my first contest winner (still waiting to hear back). Booksquare has invited me to stick around a bit, and I think I might take her up on her offer. I still have my first royalty statement to live through!

I want to thank you, and Booksquare for everything!

All my best,

    Jill, don’t count on your book being gone off the shelves everywhere tomorrow. Some stockers take longer than others. And, on a very optimistic note, in my local Borders, they don’t strip the category books at the end of each cycle – they actually keep them on the shelves until they sell. Gotta love that!

    I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride, because the first time is special. (G)

    No, really, thank you. I did nothing (literally, sometimes). And while I know I would have gone on this journey with you, it’s a lot more fun sharing it with the world.

    And yes, you’re sticking around. It is your punishment for meeting me! On a happy note, think about it: you’ve set the bar very high for future victims. It seems to me someone has a book coming out this May???

    Who? Who are lining up for the hot seat next?

    Hmm, it appears I mistyped. The book is in July. But as the author has not yet been approached, no more can be said. But rest assured — she’s highly opinionated and very knowledgeable.

    ROTFLOL. Hmmmm….She sounds very interesting. I like highly opinionated and knowledgeable people. (G)
