I am thanking each and every one of you who helped make STARGAZER — (::drumroll::) — #4 on The New York Times Bestseller List for chapter books!

It’s not in the paper yet, and I’m sort of confused still about when it will be, but the announcement came out last night, at which point dianafox, my editor and dianora2 all phoned in short order. So of course I haven’t come down from Cloud Nine yet. Seriously, thanks to all of you who have read and loved the books and told your friends; you are the ones who do the most to help authors make these lists, and I’m so thankful. (I have some news to share about upcoming books, too, but I’ll post that tomorrow or early next week.)

Weirdly, my tiara and limousine had not materialized this morning when I woke up. I shall be on the lookout.

    Tiaras do take time to materialize. Something about the weight of innumerable sparkly gems. *grins* CONGRATULATIONS!

    That’s great, congratulations!

    I’m almost finished with Stargazer and it’s great! The first book was already amazing, but this one shows a definite improvement, both in terms of story and writing. I can most definitely say: Well done! You should be proud of yourself 🙂

    All the best!

    Congrats! It’s too bad that I still can’t order the book online. When is the release date for the UK? I live in The Netherlands and I can’t order from the US. Can’t wait to read Stargazer 🙂

    I saw this in the bookstore just today and was intrigued. Reading a little excerpt of it, I was even more intrigued. Lovely, immediate writing style!

    Congratulations. Obviously well-deserved.

    Congrats! I enjoyed the book, though I have a huge crush on Baltazar now. And I’m so glad Ranulf played a bigger role in this book. He’s one of my fav characters. He always leaves me laughing.

    OMG, I’m so happy for you!! 😀 You really deserve it ♥

    But I’m pretty sad too because I live in Mexico and Stargazer hasn’t come out here yet. The good news is that I’ll go to the US probably in two months and I’ll buy it there ♥ that’s the nicest things of living in the north part of Mexico haha.

    Anyway, I’m so happy 😀 I’m sure Stargazer is really awesome ♥

    OMG! STARGAZER was super good! It had such a cliff hanger that I stared at the blank pages at the back yearning for words to appear!

    Your favorite reader!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have to confess, I am a fan girl of your books. I was in borders at the mall in my town and needed something to read, and I was browsing the ‘Young Adult’ section. I wasn’t looking for anything in apticular, but I found ‘Everynight’. I read it all the way through, and I loved it. My brother borrowed my copy and loved it as well, and now my friends want it too. <3 Your book was amazing, it really left me hanging. So, I went to the store a month later and BAM! I saw Stargazer. I bought it emediately, of course I let my brother read it before me, and im almost finished. I cant wait for your next one already. :D Be sure to make the next one spectacular. <3 I'll be waiting! -Amanda
    P.S- If you want to e-mail me back, here is my e-mail. Thank you~!
