Squee!!!

I know it's probably a silly thing to be so happy about, and it will probably change tomorrow, but--for today--

My new release, Rules of the Game, is #1 on Carina's Bestsellers' List!
Squeee!!!!!

I just was afraid it wasn't as great as #1 on Amazon or a NYT bestseller like some of the writers on this forum... To me, it's major!

I just read the description of your book. I really want to read it. It sounds just like the kind of romance story I'd love to get lost in about now. Once I'll finish my writing goal for the week - your book will be my reward!

Congrats!
