We made the bestseller list!!

A testament to you: fine friends, talented and tenacious bloggers and lovely family, I just received the following notice. (Keep in mind, The Aristobrats was barely on shelves anywhere…so this is ONLY because you called, demanded, had a hissy fit and asked for it by name. YOU ARE MY KINDA PEOPLE!)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Next stop, New York Times.
