Exciting News!

On Friday, I received a call from my editor that really has me doing a happy dance! THE SECRET LIFE OF CEECEE WILKES has been selected as a June Book Club pick for Target’s Bookmarked program. Target says Bookmarked “is all about discovering and enjoying great books”. CEECEE will have a special print run just for Target. I’m so happy she’ll get to hang out in one of my favorite stores!
I’m still pinching myself!

    Yay! That’s great news! I really enjoyed this book. I will pass the info on to my bookclub members Diane. They have been wanting to read this one. My copy is being passed around the club, but I know some of them wanted to find a copy to buy as well.

    Great! D-I deleted your email account.
    Diane-Will tell my friends…
    Will also reread it…although who forget it???

    I’m so happy for you Diane! This is a very special moment & I think you should celebrate!

    Thanks all! I’m still flying high. Just a note, though. CEECEE is available in stores and online, but it won’t be the Target Book Club selection until June. Same month BEFORE THE STORM is published.

    Congratulations, Diane. I am not surprised to hear CEECEE is a book club pick. It was a fascinating story that had me on the edge of my seat.

    I usually have to order your books as they are not normally stocked in my part of the country (Alabama). Congrats on this nationwide recognition. Tar-jay will get more of my business!
