Pretend It’s Love becomes a USA Today Bestseller
I’ll be honest, The Rules According to Gracie was initially intended to be a standalone novella. But I became curious about the laid-back, skirt-chasing Paul after turning the first book in. When I started writing his story, I realized that he was, in fact, a little misunderstood. He was a loyal, kind-hearted guy who might be a little rough around the edges, but in the best way possible.
Each book is a different experience for me – some books need to be dragged out, kicking and screaming. Others plod along slowly, all of a sudden picking up pace when you least expect it. But both of my Behind the Bar books seemed to fly out of my fingers. I don’t know why.
And, best of all, they resonated with readers. Especially Pretend It’s Love.
Then, last week, this book broke another record for me. It landed on the USA Today Bestseller list at spot #115. There aren’t the words to describe how utterly shocked I was.
This book has brought me an immense amount of joy to see how much readers loved Libby and Paul’s story. Now, it’s helped me achieve a career goal that I jotted down a year ago in the hopes that I might one day (in the far off, distant future) see my name on a bestseller list.
If you bought a copy of this book (or any of my other books), thank you. If you’ve left a review (even if you hated it), thank you.If you’ve tweeted/messages/told a friend about my book, thank you. Without the wonderful people who chose to click the buy button on my books, I wouldn’t have my dream career.
So again, a million times thank you.
