Am I bugging you?

*
Okay, I swear not to bug you all with blabbering on and on about my upcoming release...

but, when you work at something for NINE YEARS and then someone actually reads your little story and says, "hey, that's not so bad"


it is a super cool feeling.


and you kind of want to share that joy with like minded pals.


so... guess what?


With a Name Like Love
is an American Booksellers Association (think Indiebound) New Voices pick for 2011!!


We have a little joke in our family....we say, "But enough about me....what do you think about me?"

I really hope I'm not being that person.


Ben and Jerry's all around....I'm having Heath Bar Crunch...what shall I scoop for you?

Are you kidding me, girl? You better be shouting from the rooftops! If the neighbors complain, you can send them to me.

I remember when you queried this book and your agent said something to the effect of, "I love this book, I am not sure if I can sell it, but I am sure going to try" and LOOK AT YOU NoW!

Can't wait to read it!!

You just keep on bugging. No one expects you to keep quiet about a baby or a new house or a new job, so why should they expect you to keep quiet about a book being published?
