Massive Good News

I was trying to wait a couple days before posting the good news, but it appears that it has already begun to leak out in various ways. I received "The Call" from my editor last night. Yes, it's "The Call" that every writer prays to receive roughly a week after the release of his/her book. It's the Lists call.

I discovered that I made the USA Today Bestseller list. I came in at #117 at 150. I've been told that it is an extremely hard list to crack since it contains both fiction and nonfiction books. To add to my overwhelming joy, I also discovered that I made the New York Times Fiction Mass Market Bestseller extended list. I came in at #32 out of 35.

So, I wish to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone that bought a book, told a friend, gave Nightwalker a good review, and supported me though this long process of getting published. You helped me get on those lists.
