    Yesterday I was heading out for the RWA conference in Anaheim from the east coast and when I turned my phone back on for my Chicago layover and checked my email, I found out that I have three books on the New York Times August 5th ebook bestseller list @ #22, 23 & 24 (also on the combined print and e list at 29, 31 & 32) and three books on the USA Today list @ #28, 51 & 56.

    That was when I promptly burst into tears of joy. :) The woman sitting next to me edged closer to the aisle and pretended not to notice while the flight attendant shot me worried glances. It was awesome. And then I called my husband and mom & dad and whooped it up in the airport terminal!

    Virtual hugs all around!

    :) Bella

    In the words of Priscilla the Great: "Holy hot dogs!" That is great!

    That's fantastic!

    When I attended Edgar awards this year, there was an author in  in the ladies room crying and shouting to family about winning an award! She went in one of the stalls to make the call! Sort of reminds me of that kind of moment!

    Joining in happy dance!

    Champagne all around, Bella!!!  What an achievement!  I hope you are doing something really amazing to celebrate!!! 

    Did you see a spike in sales?  (Maybe that won't come till Sunday, when people open their Book Review.)
