This week, my literary agent sent me an email to let me know that The Anne of Green Gables Devotional is on the February ECPA Bestseller List* for new releases! My sweet little devo is right there at #24 of 25 books.
When I read these words, I almost stopped breathing: “Congrats! Anne is now officially a best-selling book!”
But here’s the really fun part: Her email came just as I was just getting ready to send off my manuscript for my next devotional book! (More info coming soon.) When I got the email about the Anne Devo, I was so keyed up and excited that I almost couldn’t breathe. It was all I could do to stay focused, breathe evenly, finish up my new book, and send it off.
The list includes a lot of well-known names in Christian publishing, so it was remarkable to see my book there among them. But mainly, I keep thinking about all the people who have read it in the past 3 months…and it brings tears to my eyes.
I want to thank ALL of you who have bought the book, told your friends about it, and helped to launch it. So many of you have supported me along the way and prayed for me on my writing journey.
I hope you’ll raise a cup or glass of your favorite beverage with me and say, “To many more books that draw people closer to Jesus!”
GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED.
