My editor emailed me today with this fabulous news! Target – as in the corporation of department stores that are everywhere in the US – wants my novel! Here is Deb’s exact message:
Target wants Mr. & Mrs. for their February planogram, which means the book has to close to the printer tomorrow! This is VERY EXCITING! Target takes very few books.
Wow! And, just so you know, Deb rarely uses exclamations points and I do not think she has ever used ALL CAPS!! I am seriously walking on air right now. I have dreamed of this ever since I saw Linda Berdoll and Amanda Grange at our local Target, staring at me as it were, and I would imagine my sequel sitting next to them. I would tease my daughter, who works as a Target cashier, to put in a good word for her dear-old-mom! But, this decision comes from the top. How cool is that?! And, this is without any of the official reviews or publicity even started! I am in shock and have no idea what it means in the grand scheme of things or in relation to my whole career, but for the moment I am merely going to bask…. and share it with all of you who have helped to make accomplishments like this happen. BIG HUGS!
