There are many phone calls a writer dreams of receiving, but for most of us it’s the “big three” as I like to call them, that leave us breathless, and yes, feeling a bit childlike in our joy.
First comes the call from a literary agent saying they’d love to represent our work. Then the call when a publisher wants to purchase our book. And then, further down this crazy and uncertain road, is the day the phone rings and we hear the one word that takes our breath away and has the power to drop us to our knees … BESTSELLER!
I’m thrilled to share the wonderful news that Saving CeeCee Honeycutt has hit several bestseller lists since its launch date of January 12, 2010:
New York Times
SIBA (Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance)
Southern California Regional Indie
Mountains and Plains Indie
Barnes & Noble
Amazon (Hardcover and Trade Paperback)
Amazon (Kindle #1 in Literature/Humor)
Book of The Month Club
Also, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt has been selected by SIBA as a 2010 OKRA-award nominee for Southern fiction (hardcover).
Thank you to all my readers—librarians, booksellers, book bloggers, fellow authors, magazine and newspaper reviewers, and the many book clubs—for embracing CeeCee’s story so fully. And a special thanks to Pamela Dorman, my publisher, and to Catherine Drayton, my literary agent. A writer couldn’t feel more honored.
