My publicist sent me this scanned image from the December 7 edition of the Post-Star newspaper out of Glen Falls, NY. Their “Question of the Week” answer from Sherry Recinella was a fabulous thrill for me – and the entire staff at Sourcebooks who forwarded it with their excitement conveyed. Thanks Sherry! I am delighted you loved my novel and REALLY happy that you boldly proclaimed it! *big hug*
In other news that falls into the interesting-but-not-sure-what-it-means category, I received a Google alert that for the month of November Loving Mr. Darcy ranked #240 on the Bookazine Top 500 Fiction sales. What is Bookazine, you ask? Excellent question! I asked the same thing, having never heard of them, and did a bit of research.
Founded in 1929, the company is the top independent wholesale distributor of magazines and books to book stores worldwide. From what I could ascertain, they supply generally to smaller book stores, airports, and the like.
So what does it mean to make the list? No clue! Maybe nothing. But I haven’t made any “lists” that I am aware of and being ranked in sales just 18 slots below Pride & Prejudice is kinda cool. LOL!
If curious, the website is here: Bookazine. Click on the Top 500 Trade Fiction link for a pdf of the latest list. Look for Loving Mr. Darcy on the bottom of page 8. Coolness!
