Sold out of first printing before release

So here's the thing...there's not a whole lot that makes me giddy, but when the FedEx dude came today, I was all a fluster. Now, you are thinking he was wearing a kilt or that perhaps he was hawt. Well, he was ok. Not really the hunky sort that generally catches my eye...but I digress...

The FedEx dude did, however, deliver the goods. And the goods came in the form of my author copies of HIGHLAND DRAGON. This book hasn't released yet. It's my second book from Kensington books and isn't scheduled to release until October 6, but here's what is even cooler...

I opened up to the copyright page (because that's what authors do) and about swooned when I saw the numbers.

Let me explain...
Do you see the numbers underneath 'First Printing: October 2009'? They start with 10 9 8 ...
Well because it ends in 2, this tells me that the book has already gone into a second printing!!! Sa-weet!

I can hardly wait for this book to hit the shelf. I'll be signing all over the midwest; Georgia, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas...

Busy, busy time for me, but I must get back to my WIP!



  1. Congratz Kimberly, lets toast with bubblies :D I have my review of Highland Dragon up this week on my blog to add to the buz...lets go for the second printing too *wink*

  2. Congrats Kim! I'm so proud of you.

  3. How cool is that!!! Now I'm sweating that they put my copy aside when I ordered it yesterday.

    Ah well. Hope this sends a message to those we were discussing in DC.

    You rock, Doll!!!!

  5. Congrats Kim!!! You deserve it!
