Wow what a week!
It’s been an exciting week for the debut of The Last Letter. Yesterday I was notified of the Gold Medal I won in the Independent Publishers annual competition. It’s thrilling to be included in a group that consists of self-published, small press, and university press winners.
In addition to all the kind words from readers and friends and positive reviews I’ve received so far, I was honored to experience about 24 hours on Amazon’s Movers and Shakers list last Saturday. I was at numbers 2 and 3 for much of that time!
Since April 30th I’ve spent time all over the map on the kindle bestseller list, but at times, for a debut, self-published book in it’s first week to sit here: is really pretty exciting!

At one point, I was right behind and then ahead of Water for Elephants! One of my all-time favorite books!
Anyway, thank you to everyone who is and was buying my book. Wow, thanks. To finally be in the process of selling The Last Letter–no matter the path I took–is the greatest thing I could imagine. It’s everything I did imagine.
