If you get a call on a Wednesday afternoon, telling you that a really unlikely-seeming thing has somehow happened & your book is on the New York Times Bestsellers List you will have to try very hard not to fall down. If you are me, then you hop up and down talking on the phone to various excited people you love for a few hours, being excited together. Then I hopped some more. Then I tried to work, but it was very hard because of all the hopping.
The next day I got this enormous & magnificent delivery from my agent via Fieldwork Flowers. What a gem she is & what a bunch of beauties. Those cosmos!
The Wonderful Things You Will Be debuted on the list (meaning it landed there its first week), and it still seems very surreal. I hoped people would like it! That's my main hope for anything.
So excited, as work carries on...on my next picture book, as I finish an art show, as the beginning of fall drifts in.
