Launch Party!

Oooh, I’ve been waiting for this day, and now the giddiness is practically paralyzing me as all I can do is squee at the oddest moments.

THE SECRET MISTRESS ARRANGEMENT is finally on a bookstore shelf near you!

While it’s been exciting to know the book was out in the UK and Australia, NOTHING beats going to your local bookstore and seeing your name on a real book.

I love this book, of course. It’s my first-born. But it seems a few other folks liked it as well, and that is really exciting! Romantic Times gave it 4-stars and said, “This enjoyable tale … treats readers to all the emotions, and all the highs and lows, that love entails." The fab Marilyn Shoemaker of Marilyn’s Romance Reviews made my day when she called it “magnificent” and said I crafted a “beautiful and romantic love story” (and gave me five stars on Amazon!). Then, when I debuted at #9 on the Waldenbooks Bestseller list for my first week, the giddiness knew no bounds at all. (Now it's #8! Squee!)


So let’s launch this baby properly!

And, my overseas friends, we’re launching my second book, THE MILLIONAIRE’S MISBEHAVING MISTRESS, today as well! I’m out in two countries at once.If I were any more excited, I’d have to split into two pieces to hold it. (TMMM will be an October release in the US.)

Cue the cabana boys! Rev up the chocolate fountain and jump right in!I’m giving away copies of both books today (although the winner of THE MILLIONAIRE’S MISBEHAVING MISTRESS will have to wait for a copy until I get my author copies in.)


Grab a drink and cut a rug, then be sure to head over to the Soapbox Queens where I’m reigning as Queen For A Day (and get another chance to win)! (Edited to add -- I'm also up on the I (Heart) Presents blog today. Please stop by!)



SQUEEE!!!

Congratulations!! And I want you to know I went by BAM last night with the girls, dragged them over to the shelf so that they could see Mrs. Kim's book...and it was gone. The only one already sold out :-) (and no, I didn't clean them out...I cleaned out Walmart. :-))

Congratulations! I am very happy for you. I must order it now online since everyone here has cleaned out the stores LOL.

Squee!! Party on the Playground!

All the reports of sold-out copies makes me very happy...even if it does create difficulty for my friends trying to find it.

Teeter-tooters and chocolate martinis all around.

Yay!!!! Squeee!!!!!! As you know, I bought a copy in B&N. And, the funny part y'all, PC said to me, "Why'd you buy it? You already read it."

DUH! Because I wanted a copy between a cover, my friend! And because I want you to sign it for me! And just because!

Silly PC. :) Enjoy your big day! It just doesn't get any better, does it? :)

I don't know what's the matter with my internet, but I haven't been able to get online all day. But I could check my email. Weird.

Then stupid me forgot I could get on via my iPhone. Duh!

So I'm late to the party, but my congrats are no less sincere! I'll dish up some chocolate martinis and petit fours in your honor! Love you lots!

Congrats to my darling daughter!!!

I keep telling her the book is fabulous, but what do I know?

I'll have a chocolate martini please, and where is Capt. Jack? I've been waiting all day to hook up - oops, I mean meet up with him. ;) Better make that a double martini.

But still, I have my confetti, and I'm celebrating with you!

Woohoo!

Popping over late to say belated congratulations, Kimberly! How awesome! Must be very fun to actually head into the local book-selling establishment and find your name on the cover of the latest and greatest! That's something that isn't going to get old fast ;)
