Last night I was in Atlanta changing planes from Denver (returning from ICRS) to Orlando (headed to a conference where I was speaking) and I got a text from my editor at Tyndale telling me that “First Things First” hit #10 on the New York Times best seller list!
I immediately called her to get the details–it’s the hardcover nonfiction list (which is the big one!) and it’s for the week ending July 11 which means it will be printed in the Times on the 26th (they print them two weeks behind).
I felt like a school girl. I was all smiley and giggly. But I don’t think the person sitting next to me was all that happy about my news. I called my husband, I tweeted the news, I Facebooked the news, I called a friend or two and somewhere in there I apparently knocked my water over and didn’t notice.
So if you were the young woman in seat 2A on flight 864 – uhm, I so sorry and I’ll try not to talk with my hands in the future, but this was really big news for me and I had to share it.
