    Yay, Jamie! A big congratulations to you!

    I’ve been watching sales on this go up and up, and I’ve been waiting breathless for this moment.

    I’m trying to figure out what you’d call momentum for HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET.

    That is awesome news!! Many, many congratulations to Jamie. Btw, I was at Borders over the weekend and saw about 10 copies of HOTEL prominently on display on one of the stands at the front of the bookstore. Way to go!

    I don’t want to jinx it, but I would love to see this made into a movie. Let’s hope there’s an announcement to that effect one day on this blog…

    Great job Kristin and crew! The event at Encore was fantastic. And in case you don’t know it (lol), Jamie and Leesha are thrilled with you.

    I just finished this book last night. I remember you showing the cover as it was developed etc and when it came out I went to pick it up.

    I absolutely LOVED this book. I suspect it will go up the list as it is one of those stories that demands you tell all your friends and family to read it.

    Stayed up ’til two finishing it last night, and oh, what a sweet story, Even with the bitters, it was wonderful. Congrats, Jamie!

    And you, too, Kristin! The party was terrific! Thanks!

    I’ve been fascinated by this book since you posted Jamie’s query in September 2007 (I think it was). LONG before I actually read the book.

    Then I finally got to read it, and realized it was as wonderful as I had hoped. It’s fabulous fun to watch it rise!
