Checkmate: This is War is a USA Today Best-selling book? AHHHH!!
We have no words.
(Don’t worry, we’re still writing words…. #meetprincecharming on 2/28!)
Honestly we didn’t know we made the list until this morning when we received a message about it (thanks Sophie!). We never expected this and it’s a nice, lovely, wonderful surprise and I wanted to tell each and every one of you THANK YOU! Thanks so much to all who shared last week, to our beautiful instafam, the awesome lades in the Kingdom, the amazing bloggers and readers who tagged and messaged us, Christine at the Hype PR, Sara Eirew for the beautiful photograph and design and so many more people I can’t remember at the moment! Seriously, from the bottom, tops, and sides of our two hearts, thank you so much!
This morning K called me because she COULDN’T text me the GOOD news. My palms started sweating, my heart started racing, and I was nervous although my first reaction was: are you pregnant? LOL! Side note: she might kill me when she reads this. So, she calls and I pick up the phone being all whispery because I didn’t want anyone to hear my conversation. First I sat there in silence completely shocked. I swear the clouds opened up and I heard angels singing. Confetti dropped from the ceiling and it was an instant dance party. LOL, not really but that’s what it felt like! Then it was followed by bubbling excitement with tons of gibberish and small squeals. Sometimes I don’t know how she puts up with me (it’s because we have a literary hoemance). Hahaha!!
But on a more serious note, I’ve hit top 100 on Amazon several times and K has too along with USA Today, but you guys helped pop a big ole cherry of mine and you know what? I’m still smiling about losing my USA Today Bestseller virginity with the best writing partner and friend in the world. Every day I wake up and I’m so grateful we have the most caring, funny, loving readers ever, and that K and I are able to do something we love together. She’s hard working and loves this journey just as much as me and sometimes that’s hard to find in a partner. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for anyone else in the universe, plus she knows how to keep me in check, which says a lot. A total pea in my pod. 🙂
You, our readers, mean so much to us. We can never thank you enough. Ever. The fact that many of you loved Travis King and Viola Fisher as much as we did will always be imprinted on our hearts. I may have said this before but starting Kennedy was a risk for us both and this project could have been a complete failure. The reality is creating Kennedy Fox and giving this 110% of ourselves has completely changed our lives and we are honored to be on your e-readers and that our characters are in your hearts. It makes us so happy to be on this journey with you all and we know you’re standing right beside us. And guess what? We’ve got so much more in-store for you in 2017! 🙂
….thank you, thank you, thank you!
WE <3 YOU!!!!
