New York Times Bestseller List and a New First Name

I don't even know how to write this entry.

I never thought this would happen. I remember telling Carrie Vaughn a couple of years ago that this was not something that could possibly happen to me, considering what I write. The story this tells is an amazing one, and I can't believe I'm living in it.

Um.

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making
debuted at number 8 on the New York Times Bestseller List.

O.M.F.G.


That icon was me all day, except with more crying and calling my parents and justbeast  and seanan_mcguire . I keep trying on the idea in my head and laughing because it's so unlikely and so awesome and OMGTOPTENWHAT.

I still have no coherentness. I am a third grade girl who just got the best pony ever for her birthday. That's how loud I screamed when I got the call. In the middle of a restaurant.

I am just so grateful. To all my citizens of Fairyland who had faith in me and this book. I keep dorkily thinking of the line from Babylon 5: Faith Manages. Oh, how it does. Thank you, all of you, thank you so much.

I wish I could hug everyone. I will do some straight-up hugpunking gleebouncing at Powell's tonight. Until then, I'm sorry I haven't been posting--I've barely had a moment to breathe on the road. Prize winners will be drawn tomorrow.

Sometimes, just sometimes, the world is made of magic and we land in the right timeline.

Fine print: the deal is that in order to stay on the list it has to sell as many copies this week--so if you were thinking of buying one, now would be an awesome time.

Congratulations! You and this incredible both book certainly deserve it. I feel so privileged that I'll be at Powell's tonight. ^_^

Congratulations! Hm, I think I should go pick one of those up...

HUGE congrats. Well-deserved, of course, and may you continue to have such awesome success.

Cat! That's fantastic!!! Amazing!!! and Well Deserved!!!

I am so happy for you.

Cheers,
Erin Underwood :-)

I am over the moon happy for you!!!!!!!!!!

*runs victory lap for you*

*kermitflail*

Congratulations, Cat!!! *beam*

OHWOW!!!! Yay!!!! :D

Just to check... Will it count if bought by someone outside the US? Does it have to be bought from Amazon.com or is .co.uk ok?

*bounces* x

Congrats, dude! I'm waiting for the copy my mom picked up!

Huge congrats. It is very very cool.

That is BEYOND awesome!

EEEEEE! That's overwhelmingly wonderful.

Now I'm glad I was dilatory and didn't order it as soon as I possibly could, because I just did order it. I hope you get another week, or several.

P.

I am a big dork and I am crying the happy tears for you!

*HUG*


Awesome. I'd figure it'd happen with one of your books. Hell, you managed to make out well on Palimpsest after it'd been orphaned.

But mostly, I am just happy because you're one of the writers that I think that it should happen to.

Savor every moment of it! You earned it!
