Bestseller...Holy Cow, What a Ride!!!!

New York Times Bestselling Author

USA Today Bestselling Author

Those are titles that I have seen after other authors names, heard in bios, dreamed of ever since I first picked up a pen.

And now it's happened.

Sugar and Spice hit the USA Today list of bestselling books at #27. The New York Times extended list at #16 (that one goes on the web this weekend). And now I can add those little titles after my name.

I'm still stunned and amazed and staring at the list and not believing that is MY NAME beneath the words NEW YORK TIMES.

Last night, DH had to work late, so I had the kids to celebrate with. Not exactly champagne buddies, so we went to Dairy Queen and I got a Reese's Blizzard.

Seemed a fitting celebration ;-)

    That is so totally exciting! I'll have you know that I'm one of the little people who helped put you there...and that I've started reading the book from the back, so that I can read YOUR story first!

    This one deserves MANY Blizards!

  3. Aw, thanks so much TC! And not a single reader is a little person in my eyes -- you guys are the great ones. Without you there'd be no books hitting any lists! :-)

    Thanks again!!!! Enjoy the book!!!!


  4. Sending you a HUGE congratulations, Shirley. I can't think of anyone who deserves it as much as you do. You are such an inspiration to me.

    I'm looking forward to reading Sugar and Spice. :)
