I never ever eeeeeeveeeer thought I’d see the day, but only hours after publishing Chartreuse, I realized something magical was happening. Something every author in the world secretly hopes for, but knows the chances are slim. Chartreuse climbed the charts and is still doing so. My boys are going a little higher by the hour and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
I’m sort of speechless. I don’t know how to react except with the occasional squee and arm flailing. I hoped that this book would give a message of encouragement and be inspiring to young (and old!) people who may be struggling with their sexuality, or give them a sense of comfort should they feel alone while traveling the path to self-discovery. I never….never never thought that one of my books would have the ability to do what this one has done in a little over 24 hours.
I want to cry. I want to laugh. I want to look at myself in the mirror and say, “You deserve this”, but A LOT of writers deserve it. There are so many talented authors out there who deserve to have their work put in the spotlight. There’s no way I’d be here right now without my readers, my street team, my friends, my family, and my wonderful PAs. I just can’t thank you guys enough for what you’ve done. I hope you’ll continue pushing Chartreuse towards the bestseller list, and then I’m sort of in debt to all of you-steak dinner sound okay?
Thank you again, so much.
