Priceless

Amount of work done in past 48 hours: Does work include bouncing up and down and giggling like maniac? (But a happy maniac).

Number of times looking at
printout of New York Times list to make sure I hadn't had a very long and vivid hallucination: 100/per hour

Number of exclamation marks used: So many that I think I've run out. <-- Look, no exclamation mark...wait I found a secret stash!

Number of times I've thought the reading / writing community is made up of a lot of fabulous, wonderful people - uncountable.

You guys are just the coolest - thank you to everyone who's celebrated with me! (That conga line is rockin'). You've made this just so extra special. :-)

Normal blog operations (or as normal as it gets!) will resume Monday. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Congrats, Nalini! I knew MtP was going to be huge. I picked up my copy last night - I live in NYC and had a hard time finding it at the local BN. Maybe that's because most of the copies were sold out. While at the store, my friend and I had a good chuckle because some burly masculine sales associate had to hunt a copy down for me. Currently savoring the story as I hope you're savoring this wonderful achievement!

I think this one was better than the last. I can't wait to find out what happens next. I want to see all the story threads come together.
Congratulations for a fine book.

Sissi said...

Hi Nalini,
yes, I've got the book but not from Amazon! Amazon can deliver till April.
I've got it and I read it... oh, and I love it!

Helen said...

A big congrats Nalini I have read the first two in the series and loved them I am about to order the next two and can't wait to read them. These are my first paranormal books that I have read and I thank you for opening up a new world of books for me.
Have Fun
Helen

Seeing how thrilled and giddy you are by your much deserved success is priceless at this end, too! :D

WOW! Your Psy-Chageling Series is going to be published in Thai?!? How very cool! Congratulations!

*MK shakes her booty*

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving author. Nalini I'm thrilled for you!

Casey said...

I finished MTP in two days...stupid Amazon didn't get it here until Friday. Your writing amazes me. This story made me cry on several occasions. It was so emotional. I can only imagine how emotional you get when you write these amazing books.

*dances about the NYT list*

But, please get back to work soon - I wanna read Hostage to Pleasure...yummy, Dorian.

**hugs** Casey
