Yesterday was a great day. Good news on several fronts converged to make it one of those days you wish could be a template for every day.
It was a marked contrast to a few weeks ago, when every dad-gum thing that happened felt like another kick in the shins. (I won't bore you with the details. Nobody died, that's the main thing.)
But now everything is back on track. *knocks wood* (Yes, I'm superstitious.) The extended family has electricity, air conditioners are working, and my kiddos' lives have taken happy turns.
And, um, my editor emailed me with the news that In a Fix got a 4 1/2 star review in the most recent issue of RT Book Reviews, and is one of their Top Picks!!!!!
(Please pardon the excessive use of exclamation points. Sometimes they escape the confines of decorum, and go leaping out onto the screen without restraint.) (!!!!!!)
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the whole review or not (what constitutes "fair use" for a review, anyway?), so I'll just share a few of my favorite lines:
"Seamlessly blending humor and action, Grimes thoroughly impresses with her debut novel."
Some other really nice stuff, and then:
"This deliciously sexy and fun-filled romp simply is a must-read."
I'm...well, pretty much gob-smacked, is what I am. And, of course, very, very happy. :)
For those of you tired of hearing another author yammer on about her book, you can look at this picture of my daughter's cats instead:
Vera and Valentine are "feline fine," and so am I.
Oh, and it's Friday. You know what that means. I'm over at The Debutante Ball, where this week we're discussing selling ourselves. Er, I mean marketing our books. Stop by and say hi if you get a chance.
So, how are you feline--er, feeling today? Hope you're gearing up for a great weekend!
