It's such a pleasure to announce that SWEET CHRISTMAS KISSES is on the USA Today bestsellers list.
When I read the caption, the emotion made me speechless for a moment, then I kept mumbling, Oh my God, Oh my God. My husband saw my face pale and rush to my side. "Are you OK?" He thought I was having a heart attack. What a giddy feeling. But soon I shouted at the top of my lungs, "I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author," and I couldn't stop laughing and babbling. We had a drink to celebrate reaching this milestone and every author's goal or dream.
When I attended my first RWA National Conference in 2004 and saw some 4,000 writers, bustling in the ballroom for lunch, my stomach constricted. If all these people competed to be published there was no way on Earth I would succeed. And yet here I am, ten years later, standing on the top of the mountain, screaming, "TaDa!" 
If I made it, you can make it. Hard work, perseverance, a lot of support, a good network, and a "little bit of blooming luck".

    I remember when your first book came out. I was so excited for you...this is even better. Well deserved and so glad it happened and I was able to watch your progress...you're a truly wonderful writer.

    So excited and proud of you and the wonderful authors who all reached this milestone together. I remember the RWA conference in Atlanta. You and I were on a balcony and looked at the large crowd of writers and agents.

    Sincere congrats!
