This morning, I was thrilled to see that PRIDE MATES, my Feb. release, not only stayed on the USA Today bestseller list, but moved up!!
Not only that, but I noticed that category romances are now being reported to USA Today. Hooray! If you look at the PDF of the list:
you'll see four Harlequin Presents on it. Last week (ending 1/31/2010) there were eight from Harlequin. And a couple of Silhouettes. Until recently, USA Today did not report category sales (and NYT still doesn't), so I'm very glad to see this. Category romance has a huge audience and sells as well as big-name hardback single-title authors of all genres. I'm pleased to see category authors get some recognition!
In other news: RWA National accepted two of my proposals for workshops (one is Bonnie Vanak and me; one is on my own). I've already registered and looking forward to Nashville!
