An Anniversary

Today is the one-year anniversary of the release of Bad Girl.

It's been an exciting, scary, stimulating and exhausting year. I've been so grateful for the support and good will of so many people--readers, other writers, bloggers, bookstore clerks--the world of book lovers really is a lovely community.

I feel so fortunate in my agent, Jacky Sach, and my editor, Tracy Bernstein, and in my wonderful critique partners. I don't know where I'd be without all of you.

And then it starts all over again. The roller-coaster ride, the hurry-up-and-wait, the trepidation, the exhilaration . . . whew!

But I'm in this for the long haul so I'll just keep on going, grateful for the opportunity and hoping to share at least a little bit of the kindness that has been given to me.

As I write this, Bad Girl is #34 on the list of Amazon's best-sellers for single women. Throughout the entire year, it has gotten as low as #84 and as high as #2, but it has never fallen off that list of 100 books.

Thank you, all.

I've been finding that out over the past couple of years and I'm constantly amazed and grateful for it.
