So…. this week has been flooded with amazing, wonderful, overwhelming things. Very amazing, very wonderful and very overwhelming…. and all in a very good way. (Is that too many ‘verys’?)
First– and this is absolutely scream-worthy. As of right this minute, If You Stay is sitting at #16 in the ENTIRE Amazon kindle store. The entire freaking Amazon store!! Holy. Wow. I’ve been in shell-shock all week! It’s sitting at #8 on Barnes and Noble. Double Wow. I am literally floating on air right now.
I am so, so thankful for every single one of you. You have no idea how thankful and grateful I am!! I have been brought to tears many times this week by the messages and tweets and Facebook posts that I have received over this book. So many awesome bloggers have shared and featured If You Stay and so many readers have read it. I am humbled by your responses to it. To say that I am ecstatic over your reception of Pax’s story…. that’s the biggest understatement of my life. Seriously. I can’t express how thankful I am.
So, to try and show you how thankful I am for you and how much I appreciate you, I am going to offer you something…something I never planned on showing anyone because I had decided that it was too steamy to include in If You Stay.
That’s right–I said too steamy. (Is that even a thing???)
I am so very close to reaching the top ten in Amazon. Closer than I’ve ever been or ever thought I’d be. So close I can practically taste it. So this is my offer to you:
If and when I break into the top ten on Amazon, I will post a deleted sex scene from If You Stay here on my blog. A very steamy sex scene of the very R-rated nature that contains of a LOT of Pax yumminess…Pax at his most naughty. I think you will like it. I definitely liked it… the only reason that I only cut it from the book because it was so steamy.
So, please… if you read and loved If You Stay, please help me share it. You can find it on Amazon here and Barnes and Noble here. YOU GUYS are the reason that If You Stay has had the early success that it has. And if it reaches the top ten on Amazon, it will be because of you.
Secondly, and equally important, I have signed with the amazingly awesome literary agent, Catherine Drayton of Inkwell Management. Catherine Drayton!! Holy cow. I am beyond confident in her ability to manage the chaos that If You Stay’s release has brought with it. And I am ecstatic to be repped by Catherine. This past week has been a wild ride full of amazing things and I cannot wait to see what else the future brings. Eeeeppp!!
But anyway. Thank you again. I am so hoping that If You Stay reaches the top ten and when it does, I can’t wait to release Pax’s sexy deleted scene right here on my blog.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
