Eleven months ago today, I got The Call that Sourcebooks wanted "Line of Scrimmage." Last Wednesday, I returned from vacation to find my box of author copies on the front porch. Over the weekend, my phone rang off the hook with friends and family telling me they had received their pre-ordered copies from Amazon.com. On Monday, I saw it for the first time in stores! Yesterday, friends in Boston, Virigina, and California reported sightings in their local bookstores. It's been a very exciting week, to say the least! The best part is that because of the time of year, my husband and kids were with me the first time I saw the book and the first time I saw it on a bookstore shelf. It was nice to be able to share the excitement with them.
Here's a photo of my first visit to the book in a store:
Next time I'll be sure to take a moment to put on a little eyeliner and some lipstick! Here's a photo of the fabulous neighborhood my husband's last name put me in:
I'm thrilled to be next to Lori Foster, one of my favorite authors!
As we were waiting to pull into the bookstore partking lot, Rod Stewart's "You're In My Heart" came on the radio—Ryan and Susannah's wedding song in "Line of Scrimmage." Karma? I'd like to think so!
Come on back on Monday (Labor Day) for the "Line of Scrimmage" launch party where I'll be giving away two copies of the book as well as some Barnes & Noble gift cards to those who comment. Don't miss the fun!
