The Day We Hit Both Lists!

#11 Cowboy 12 Pack

I thought it was going to be a great day because my husband and I were going furniture shopping. We just renovated a little house and were living without a table to eat on, chairs to sit in, a living room to relax in or a television to watch for the last three weeks. Actually, we still are because the furniture won’t come for another four weeks and we never did get to a store with televisions. I know. Our priorities can be different.

Since I’d been up until 3:30am working on a manuscript I promised my agent, when we got home around 4:00pm I went to bed for a couple hours, so I could pull another writing/revising marathon.

That never happened.

When I woke, I turned on the computer and checked my email. A slew of messages appeared from the amazing authors I was involved with in the box set we put out called Cowboy 12 Pack (My book Cowboys Never Fold is a part of it). Seriously, these authors are wonderful, funny, encouraging, and overall great people. Some I have known for years. Some I’ve corresponded with via social media, and some I met for the first time working on this project. These wonderful ladies are Elle James, Randi Alexander, Paige Tyler, Cynthia D’Alba, Shoshanna Evers, Sable Hunter, Becky McGraw, Sabrina York, Donna Michaels, Cora Seton, and Beth Williamson. As you can imagine, when I say there was a “slew” of emails, with this many authors involved, I mean it!

Screen shots of Cowboy 12 Pack on the USA Today and New York Times Best Seller lists were attached. I just stared. Huh? I called my husband “Is this…? Does this mean…?” I couldn’t form a single whole sentence. Afraid to believe it was true, I started researching the internet. Then I went to my facebook page and there was a post from Kathryn Falk congratulating us with a photo of the New York Times list. I stepped out into our empty living room and stood there looking at my husband. “It’s true. We hit both lists.” 

He grinned as if he’d known all along.

I’m still getting used to the idea, but it’s a great idea to be getting used to. 

Giant hugs to my group of amazing, wonderful, cowgirl author friends and a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has bought the Cowboy 12 Pack. Y’all rock! Enjoy the reads :-)
Always, Lexi
