Fab news!

Sorry to hijack the coffee morning but I just had some good news and after my rather doom and gloom comment earlier (sorry if that was all a bit Too Much Information) wanted to redress the balance and share it with all you lovely Novel Racers...

Over You has got into the 'Heatseekers chart'* in the Bookseller, which charts the 'bubbling under' fiction outside the Top 50. It's in at number 16! Whoopeeeeee! I am so so so chuffed and definitely putting some champers in the fridge for later. Hoorah!!!

Oh thanks all of you! I really am so pleased, I can't tell you, I haven't dared ask how sales have been because I was dreading hearing '5 copies' or something dismal. But according to the Bookseller, it sold 1,671 copies last week which sounds bloody marvellous to me!
Champers is in the fridge ready to be quaffed!

Couldn't have done it without the Novel Racers, you know!
