THE QUEEN’S BASTARD topped the Locus Bestseller trade paperback list for August 2008. How wonderful and surprising! How grateful I am to everybody who bought a copy of the book in May! (Which is when the list is compiled from, I do believe.)

Well! Isn’t that a cheery bit of news! Don’t I feel more like writing now than I did twenty minutes ago! :)

Congratulations! :)

*glances at TBR shelf* There it is, right next to Bear's INK AND STEEL. Argh! Too many great books to read, too little time... too much writing to do first. *g*

What is lovelier than a book in May?
I saw a copy for sale in the Worldcon dealer's room! (But didn't buy it, since I already have a copy.)

Here's hoping you'll make it to Worldcon 2009 in Montreal to do signings and panels and who-knows-what-all!

Oh, man, is it in Montreal next year? That would be awesome. O.O
