Hitting #1 on Amazon

Hitting #1 on Amazon

It finally happened. I hit #1 on Amazon yesterday (& today) with my book Maya & Filippo Make Friends in Auckland in my category. It’s  a wonderful feeling! I have reached the best-selling lists in the past but this is my first time at #1. So now that I proved to my high-school bully and to myself that I’m really worth something, I’m going to spend the rest of my life lying on the beach and basking in the glory. Except that I don’t like sunbathing and I’m not a writer for the glory and I don’t feel like I need to prove anything to anybody. I just love writing and publishing and the business side of my books. It’s so rewarding to see my thoughts, words and beliefs on paper beautifully illustrated by the very talented people I work with.

But the biggest reward of all is when my daughter picks out MY books to read to her before bedtime. She has so many to choose from and yet she wants to listen to the stories I write over and over again. So you see, what gives me the biggest joy happens in the comfort of my own home, but hey, I did print out that amazon screenshot and stick it to the fridge 🙂
