New York Times Diva!


NOAH had the most incredible run on the NYT mass market list! I went as high as number 11 this time, my highest number yet! NOAH stayed on the lists for a full three weeks. It was totally awesome. And I know I owe it all to you guys. Thanks so much for reading me and for running out to buy me on release day. You rock!!

Now, that being said, guess what I got? ARCs of Ecstasy!! Yes, they are here, advanced copies on the first book in my new series, the Shadowdwellers. OoOoooo. And I gave a whole bunch away at Lora Leigh's RAW weekend at a little private after party I held in my suite. Heh. We had a really great time. I have pictures around here somewhere...

this is me bartending in my room

These are the ecstasy ARC winners

this is me and Nalini Singh! She was so darn sweet!!

These are my forum girls! Stacy L Tracy and Westcoast girl. All the Nightwalker chicks together!!

This is my friend Anni. She mooned me outside of the costumed ball. I threw my back out and couldn't go :( but that's okay there's always next year!

This is me getting writer's cramp :P

two winnners of Ecstasy goodies, one hat and one tshirt :) It pays to come to my private party. Hehehe.

Ah! All my Nightwalker girls.
Anni, Rena, Susan, Tracy and Stacy!
That's Nalini in the corner lol.

Two Nightwalker...erm...boobs.

And that's that. :) Looks like fun huh? How do you like my kitty cat jammies? Too cool huh? Next year I'm wearing the slippers I won at Lori Foster's weekend. And you should know that I am trying to put together a weekend very much like this one together for all you guys. :) Won't that be fun?!?! We, meaning the Authors After Dark, are in the process of lining up the authors right now. You'll hear more as we go. It'll be in NY. It'll be awesome.

Anyway, I will try to blog more often. I've been writing like a madwoman though. I get very cavelike when that happens.

Oh! I almost forgot the best part!! I want to give away and Ecstacy ARC! Oh you know you want it! All you have to do is comment here today on this post and you're entered in to win. I will post the winner on my home blog tomorrow. Good luck!!

Hugs and Kitties

Hi Jacki;
Hope all is well, I am stuck in Western Canada on course for 7 months and of course I brought Noah with me to read :) Hope all is well, your friend from the North :)

Sage said...

Ah, Jacki, it looks like it was a blast!!!
I would love to be able to attend something like that at some point. Who knows, maybe someday!
And we love to hear that you are writing! That's always a plus for us!!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Congradulations on Noah-- he was amazing, and you did a great job!

It looks like you had a great weekend, I am sorry I could not make it but Carol got my books signed for me so that is something. I love the kittie jammies!

WOW looks like I missed a great party. Wish I could have been there this year.
BTW I am giving away a gently used copy of NOAH on my blog since I was fortunate enough to win a signed one from you at a chat. lol You have until midnigt tonight if anyone needs a their own copy.
you'll have to scroll down to the post cause I couldn't figure how to keep it on top lol.

Pamk said...

...and lots of fun was had by all... eh? Good for you.

Will ya'll nag me if I say that, I still consider JACOB to be your best written work (to date)?

Me being the shy type an' all, it seemed to have the least amount of cover-your-eyes material. *g*

Hey Jacki,

It was great to meet you at RAW, Just so you know who I am, I am the person who won the Princess necklace basket on your auction and wore the necklace to the masked ball :)


Shartyrant said...

Ack! NYC? No! NC!! That is the place to hold it (not that I am biased or anything). Hmm...never been to NY. They have publishers headquartered up there. That means...books!! Must talk husband that we should do NYC soon!

I sincerely hope you had a blast up at RAW. Congrats on NOAH and I am so looking forward to the Shadowdwellers. It looks to be awesome from the tidbits you have told us. Need....more!

Hi Jacki,
I absolutley loved Noah and am rubbing my hands together with glee over the prospect of Ecstacy. I hate the fact that because I live in England I can't attend any of the weekends or signings I read about.
