Happy December!

Okay, seriously? Where has 2009 gone? I can't believe the year is almost over. Truly mind-boggling.

So a week's gone by since my book release, and I have to admit: I still wake up every morning and think "Dude, I have a book out in stores." Big thank yous, by the way, to everyone who's reported a book sighting (or multiple books). And yes, I admit to checking Amazon once a day just to peek. TDTD is holding between 81 and 95 on the Contemporary Fantasy top 100, which is exciting.

I'm guest blogging today at Literary Escapism. Folks who want to know about world-building and Dreg City, make sure you stop by. We're giving away a signed copy of THREE DAYS TO DEAD.

There's also a new review up at Writings of a Wicked Book Addict, with some nice things about the book.

I've also started going over my "Read in 2009" list over on GoodReads. So far, I'm at 88. I'd hoped to read 100 books/novellas this year, but I don't know if I'll make it. Think I can read twelve more books in thirty-one days?

We'll see....

Congratulations on breaking the top 100. The book deserves to be in the top 10. I haven't even finished it yet, and I can't wait until the second one comes out!

Congrats on staying in the top 100 on Amazon. I did my part, and I'm just waiting for TDTD to arrive so I can enjoy it.

Three Days to Dead. Best book I've read in 2009. The worst part about it, the last page. I've never even bothered looking up an author on any website. But, your book was that good. Already pre-ordered the next one. Great work!

Wow, thank you, M, for stopping by! So glad you loved the book and are eager for the next!

Barbara - Yay! Is that Destined for an Early Grave in your avatar pic? I love that book!

Geoff - Thank you! Happy reading!

Just wanted to let you know that Three Days to Dead was fabulous! I couldn't put it down and stayed up until way too late. Just pre-ordered the next one. Love love love Wyatt!

As soon as I get over to the bookstore (planned for tomorrow), I'll be picking up my copy that's been on hold since the release date (argh!) and will take a photo for you of any wild sightings. :) YAY release! YAY top 100!

-Kelly Meding said...

Demon Hunter - I think I still owe you a signed copy from the 2K contest you won. My author copies are coming (eventually) so I haven't forgotten you!

Kristi - Yay! I think the book needs a little sticker that says "Warning: Sleepless Night May Occur When Reading." Hehe. I love Wyatt, too!

alana - Thanks!
