How did it feel to see your book on The Colbert Report last night, and for it to shoot to being the #1 bestseller at Powell's books overnight?
It felt...incredible, surreal, weird, wonderful, amazing! My husband and I were squealing and then speechless, squealing and then speechless. I am incredibly grateful to Sherman Alexie for choosing to talk about my book out of all the books affected by the Hachette-Amazon dispute. And, wow, Colbert--thank you for the bump! I am proud and excited to be a #1 bestseller at Powell's. I visited the store for the first time last fall and bought a dozen books and basically just wandered around in awe. Powell's! Me! Together! I think my face just melted off.
