Seraphina made the #8 spot on the New York Times Bestseller list, Children’s Chapter Books division, for July 29th, 2012. I am still kind of reeling at this news.
How does that happen to a debut novel? Well, I’m sure each book has its own story to tell. The fine folks at Random House have been behind the book 100%, for which I am incredibly grateful. Thank you all so much. I also want to thank all the book bloggers, internet reviewers, and GoodReaders who read the ARC early on, liked the book, and spread the word.
YOU did this. All of you. Thank you so very much.
I do just want to add that if you look at the Picture Book list, who do you also see at #8? That’s right. DRAGONS LOVE TACOS. So, we meet again old friend! This book and mine are following each other around, it appears. It is the Summer of Dragons, some of them taco-loving, some… not. But it can’t possibly be a coincidence!!
