New York Times! USA Today! (And a thank you)

So here I am, at the RT BookLovers convention in Chicago.  Yesterday, after finishing up a workshop on sexual tension, I saw that my editor had called with the AMAZING news that About That Night made both the New York Times (#26 in ebook) and USA Today (#89) bestseller lists!!!!  I think I was speechless for a moment or two–a rare occasion, indeed–before the cheering began.  And then, while calling my husband, I may or may not have told a bunch of perfect strangers in the elevator that my book made the NYT and USA Today lists.  (Luckily, they cheered too, or that would’ve been really awkward.)

It goes without saying that this is all because of you guys, all you awesome readers who bought the book this past week.  For that I’m thrilled beyond words.  All the emails and tweets and Facebook comments you’ve sent about About That Night have been great–it’s wonderful to hear that so many of you have enjoyed the book.  Yay for Smug Dimpled billionaire heir ex-cons!

The New York Times list hasn’t posted yet, but here’s the USA Today list for anyone who wants to check it out.

Thanks so much, everyone. I’m over the moon.

    That is great news, Julie! It is interesting to me how books make it or don’t make it on those lists. This one very much deserved it but I also thought the other FBI/US Attorney series books were of the same level of writing and should have made it as well! Congratulations!

    About That Night was such a great book so no wonder it made two bestseller lists!

    Congratulations! A testament to your amazing talent. LOVE your characters and story lines.

    Any chance that we eager fans might get to see a Jordan & Nick wedding at some point, perhaps as a novella? Pretty please… 😉

    Congratulations Julie!! Your contemporaries are just a breath of fresh air! ATN did not disappoint. Any hints what you may be working on next?

    That’s terrific news and probably well deserved! I received the book two days ago and have just started it last night…if not for baby, I would have read more of it! I love the beginning already, and their meeting again 9 years later…great!
    IMO, you’ve reached a high level of fame from your first four books and I’m sure from now on, you’ll always made it on those list ! Thanks for writting so well…

    Julie, you are a gifted writer! I’ve read all of your books within a week and loved them all. Your ability with dialog is beyond my ability to express adequately. Please publish more books soon. Will be rereading each of them.
