Completely Gobsmacked

Remember how excited I was to hit the bestseller list for Samhain with Taking the Cake? Well, I just got this pic from my editor:

Take a peek at the number one spot. :)

I am utterly shocked, amazed, and thrilled to find out that Taking the Cake is NUMBER ONE!!!!

According to my editor, this is the first time a book by a first time author has hit the number one spot in under a week.

Huge, huge thanks to everyone who's bought the book; obviously, TtC would never have made it this far without you.

I'm beyond thrilled that people are excited to read the book. Having the opportunity to connect with readers has been a longtime dream of mine, and it's finally starting to happen. I am truly blessed -- thank you!!!

Ahem. I was reminded by one of my other authors that she did it in two days. So I'll just say it's the first time a brand new, first time author has done it. That should cover all my bases.

Regardless, it's a big accomplishmen. Congratulations :)

I had been counting the days until taking the cake would be released and had the bad luck to be moving! I finally unpacked the computer and the first thing I did was buy Taking the Cake! I loved it and can't wait for book 2. Write faster will ya!

Thanks, Stacy! I'm still a bit giddy over it all.

And Jennifer, thanks so much for buying Taking the Cake! I'm so glad you liked it. I just turned in a new manuscript to my editor this morning -- is that fast enough? :)
