Not really.

I heard from a friend of a friend that Frank Murphy talked about my blog on the radio yesterday.

Although I listen every single day, I didn't hear it. Either it was after I went into work or it didn't happen.

I believe it was after I went into work. I'm optimistic like that.

Anyway, that happened yesterday and I also got the electronic ARC's (advanced review copies) for my book, as well as the full cover and all that good junk. And, I worked out a time to do a scripted interview so that my publisher can send it to people like Oprah (who will probably never even look at it, but isn't that exciting anyway?).

So I say to Jason, "Jason. Isn't this exciting? All these things are happening. Do you know what this means?"

And my spouse says, "It means that even though you have cramps, you are in a really good mood and not being shrieky!"

We all take our victories where we can.

Seriously. Your whole friggin' life is changing!!!

Imagine if Oprah DOES read it? And loves it?
And has you on her show?
Then you write a second book, then a third...

And next thing you know... you could be, like, the next JK Rowling or something...!!!

Okay, I'm getting ahead of myself.

Bottom line? I'm very very excited for you!

I cannot begin to tell you how FREAKIN' happy I am for you... now I wish I would've been able to have lunch with you when I was over that way this summer... because now you're going to be all famous and crap and you won't have time for us bloggers anymore... ;)

No seriously Steph... it's exciting. I mean, I've been stalking, I mean following, you since before you would even tell us your real name and it's been to see it all unfold!

I want to be a reviewer of the book. Please? :D

I'm thinking Jason is going to keep you well grounded. As you fly - the sky is your limit now lady! Go!

LOL, Jason cracks me up!

I'm all for the optimism, even if he didn't talk about you though I did. I'm telling everyone about your book and I can't wait to go to the bookstore and pick up my copy. I'm bloggy friends with an author, how cool is that?

Very, very cool. At this rate you are BOUND to meet Frank at the symphony next week! :)

You deserve all this and more! So excited for you. We always knew you would be famous one day. If Oprah has any sense, she will choose your book.

Zephyr said...

Ha. Does Jason even know what a comedian he is?

Denise said...

So excited for you Steph! Can I hitch a ride on your coat tails?

Bethany said...

Oprah should beg for you to be on her show!

Jason cracks me up.

Dude, your husband cracks my shit up!

I think Oprah should totally have you on her show. And if she doesn't? I say we crash it! :)
