Wherein we come full circle

Friday the 13th. I adore this day. I sold my first book on this day in June of 2008. (Two Charlie Madigan books to be exact). And, now, two years later on yet another Friday the 13th, I've just received my final copies of that second book. I started and completed my first contract. Made the sale and got the final book of that sale all on this auspicious day.


Friday the 13th Rocks!!

Happy book-deal anniversary! or happy book anniversary...you know what I mean. So the 13th - lucky number for you. I have two boys born on the 13th, so I've always considered that day lucky. (awwwww.)

Can't wait to read the Darkest Edge of Dawn. :)

When does the new one come out? Isn't it super soon? If I buy a copy and bring it by on my Epic Journey Across our Great Nation Take 5, will you sign it for me?!?!?! :)

Congratulations! I have a finished copy on my coffee table for review. I can’t wait to spend time with Charlie and Hank again :)

Kelly what a great way to actually put the "lucky" back in to the day Friday the 13th! Congratulations on the auspicious anniversary and my copy of Charlie's second adventure is ordered but have to wait for it to get back in stock before it will be delivered, another good omen!

Happy Friday the 13th! One of my favorite days simply because I have a habit of taking things that other people deem as ill and making them happy things for me.

I love, LOVE, hearing about your progress, and SEEING you succeed. It gives me hope in those moments when I'm lost in the throes of 'I haven't heard from agent X, they must hate me, I'll never get published boo hoo' drama and help me pull myself up by my bootstraps and get back to the business of life. :)

This is SO awesome! I love when good things happen to cool people:) It must have been a surreal day to think about the last 2 years and all that is happened.

You guys are awesome. Thanks for the nice words. Feel like I've been on this journey will you. :-) And that's just very, very cool.

And, yes, Beck. I will. Of course. :D

Happy Anniversary, Kelly! It's great to look back and see what you've achieved over 12 months, isn't it?

I hope you celebrated in some form this anniversary. May the next 12 months bring you more achievements!
