Blog Thoughts from Amber, News - New Release

…And Then I Nearly Crapped My Pants

I was standing by the kitchen island, refreshing my CAGED sale site on Amazon when my husband blurts out over my shoulder…”Go back!  You’re ranked in the top 100!”


I almost fell over, but sure enough, when I scrolled down the screen I saw CAGED in the #93 position – snuggled in right below Charlaine Harris.  Yep, that Charlaine Harris, the creative source behind the Sookie Stackhouse novels and the inspiration for True Blood on HBO.

Hold.  The.  Phone.

When I started this little journey, I would be lying if I said I didn’t envision myself topping the charts, selling millions of books to adoring fans who were as much in love with my characters as I was.  Did I really think it would happen…not so much.  Granted, I’m FAR away from being the next Twilight, but to have just a taste of that, if only for a moment confirmed what I’ve long thought.  If you can build it in your mind, you can build it in your life.  Wise words from a woman who nearly s*!# her pants upon seeing her kindle ranking.

(I’ve pasted the picture of the screen so you, too, can enjoy my moment of delirious  joy)
