Contemporary’s top 100 baby!

My new friend.

Do you believe in coincidences?  How about fate?  Luck?

Well whatever you believe in…it’s hooked me!

The other night (father’s day to be exact) I was speaking to my own father and husband about how my dream would be to hit a top 100 list.  Now, I’m very aware of that fact that it would take a manna from Heaven kind of miracle for me to hit THE top 100 amazon list, but I wanted to start with just one list.

I’ve already hit a few top 100 lists when my book goes free, and I got a good taste of what that felt like.  I’m human.  I wanted MORE!

So, as I’m sure you can guess where I am going with this, yesterday morning BRIGHT AND EARLY my husband flops into bed and says “you gotta wake up.” I won’t lie and tell you that I sat up with a cheery smile and little birdies sang a chipper song outside my bedroom window.  I’m not exactly sure what I grumbled as I tried to roll back over, but I’m sure it wasn’t exactly nice.

Next thing I know, I have a laptop in my face and I hear the words “you did it.”  Peeling my eyes open once more I see my name on the top 100 contemporary list for my teen paranormal romance FORBIDDEN.

Ok, now is when I shot upright and yanked the computer towards me to get a closer look.  Seriously?  Me, in a genuine PAID top 100 list? I was sure there was some sort of mistake.  I didn’t do anything different.  No crazy marketing push.  No paid advertisement.  Nothing.

I was praying that I could hang on for at least 1 full day.  It was rough going yesterday. I bounced as low as 88 and then would start the agonizing climb back towards 98.  When I went to bed last night I was sitting at 94, sure that this morning I would be back to my regular numbers.  Another miracle.  I’m currently sitting at 89.

So how did it happen?  I know exactly what happened.  My readers are awesome!  End of story!
