BLACKOUT #19 on NYT Bestseller!  

You guys did it! Rob's Reavers did it! We broke the top 20! Now I can say Cal is a NYT Bestseller *anywhere* not just certain places. I owe so much to you guys. No one...*no one* has better fans in the frigging universe! It took 3 years, but WE DID IT! And in 18 more years we'll claw our way to #1! <grin>

Don't forget to check your email to see if you've won a prize in the Blackout contest!

Fabulous! I'm so happy we could do this for you and Cal and Niko -- can't forget Niko. I was so impressed by Blackout. Cal's character really comes out and Niko, I cried.

I've been spreading the word like mad on how great the books are!

I'm so excited for you and the series!!
I knew we could do it! (;<
There's no way your awesomeness when it comes to writing could go unnoticed for long. (Well, that and Cal's snark)
I have a feeling it'll only increase with time.
We better shoot high for next year!

I was blown away by blackout. I had a short time of amnesia.. you *nailed* it! I Love your books, and have a bad habit.. good habit? Or buying copies for my friends and forcing them thus to read and becoime fellow fans... :D

Keep writing, and being the lovely person you are.

WOOHOO! Way to go Rob!
Damn, I'm so happy! Blackout is so worth it! LET'S KEEP GOING! Bwahaha!

This totally proves the truly epic quality of your books.
You've clawed your way up from the pit of voles as each person who picks up your books goes "Holy shit, this book is awesome, why have I not heard of it before?" and passes the word on, as opposed to the ones coughTwilightcough that are hmmmmmmmm so-so, but got just the right publicity at just the perfect time.

Do you know that I made such a fuss about Nightlife that my mom (who usually does not read urban fantasy) actually demanded I show her your books? And then she had to go buy it because I have this weird paranoia about people bending my books so I refuse to lend them out. Heh. :)

Congratulations - that's really wonderful news. I can't think of anyone who deserves it more. Your writing is just fantastic.
Terionterioncalling on March 12th, 2011 05:37 am (UTC)
Oh huzzah! So, so, so good to finally see you make it - sure as hell deserved to do so before now.

Blackout was amazing, by the way. Cal, Niko, Robin...and the end, oh the end. There are no words, just wibbling and wanting to hug every character.

Best news!
I was in class when I heard the news! I am so excited! I posted it on FB, and now I'm headed to Tumulus! I almost leapt out of my seat/cried but you know...I'm not sure my Mayan and Aztec Anthropology teacher would appreciate that...necessarily...
