ONE. MILLION. WORDS!  

My editor at Del Rey sent a couple copies of THE QUEEN’S BASTARD ahead of the contracted author copies so that I could see them soonest. Oh my god. This is a beautiful, beautiful, *beautiful* book. Ted, in awe, said, “This is *hot*,” and it *is*. I cannot *wait* for this to go on the shelves so people can get it, because oh my GOD it’s gorgeous. I ran around the house shrieking and doing the beauty queen thing and being all tearful. It’s *so* pretty.

And it’s the mark of a couple pretty freaking significant landmark for me. First, it’s my first non-Harlequin book. Second, it’s my TENTH FREAKING NOVEL! ZOH. MY. GOD.

And third, I now have one million words in print.

Not too damned bad for somebody whose first book came out in June 2005, eh?

*beams like a frakking fool*

Congratulations! (See, if you'd stood on that pile you would've been way taller than me and Maura.)

I can't wait for my shelves to be fixed so I can show off a similar collection! Really would love my own (as in written by me) set like that. Though I don't know I could do as many as quickly.

Congrats on that - I have 8 of them so far - looking forward to the latest one.
