We're number one

So I admit that I was a cheerleader in high school. Don't worry though, I will not be pulling out any photos of me with my 80s feathered bangs and skinny legs. But I did have to shout the old cheer about being number today.

Ruth is currently at the offices of our lovely publishers working on her second book, which will showcase her soulfully beautiful fabric art. And today she had lunch with the awesome members of the F&W Sales Team. They told her that A Charming Exchange is the top selling jewelry book at Barnes and Noble! I am giddy with glee! They said the book is very well-received and is finding its way to prominent positions in the stores. Yay! It just makes me twirl and clap my hands (oh my. too many cheer leading references for one post!).

Thank you all for hollering about the book. Your kind words and posts surely have helped to propel it to these lofty heights. It has been a lot of hard work pulling it together but there is no greater reward than to know that folks are enjoying it. That just makes us so very excited. It feels darn good!

Congrats on the numbers! I'm happy for you! Maybe I'll stop by more often and pick up some pointers on publication.

Great book!

Love the book! Any word on how to purchase some of the pieces mentioned in the book (page 80 says to check here for details, but I didn't see any). Thanks!
