An Amazing Thing Happened on the Way to the Coffee Shop...

So I was heading into Starbucks yesterday to meet a friend and then decided to stop at Barnes & Noble first. I love me some books, you know? I have a pattern. I weave through the front of the store, briefly stopping to glance over the new releases, then I head to the YA section and then over to the romance section. Once I hit the YA section, I head to the B's... can my book be out yet? Brian, Brian, Brian... BROWN!

My books! They were there! Only three of them, but they were there. I cried.

What an amazing moment. And then I realized I looked like hell and therefore couldn't introduce myself to the bookseller and sign the books. Ahem.

I snap a pix and then wander out to find Kerry, my best friend and CP extraordinaire. When she arrives, I march her through the store, she oohs and ahhs appropriately and buys a book. YAY!

It was an epic moment.

Be sure and check back over the weekend... I have a contest for Tuesday you all are going to want to participate in:)

I am trying to be a writer myself and I would do just about everything (I wouldn't cry). God you must have loved seeing the proof that you have the writing talent people want to read. I hope I have that some day. I love you're books.

Your book seems awesome. Also, it was a great idea to make a blog. This will do wonders for your book's publicity.
