STATUS: I’m having a terrific day with lots of good news!
What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? GEORGIA ON MY MIND by Willie Nelson
Okay, I know you guys are probably getting sick of these announcements but I have to celebrate when milestones happen and what better way then to announce it on the blog.
This year has been an amazing one for Nelson Literary Agency and the New York Times List. We’ve had two authors debut for the first time on the list (and in the same month to boot!). Jamie Ford’s Hotel On The Corner Of Bitter And Sweet has literally been on the regular NYT list or the extended list for 6 months straight.
I mean, holy cow.
Then today marks a new milestone. Today I have 3 authors on the NYT list at the same time. This has got to stop as the bar is getting raised seriously too high. Still, I’m grinning.
And for those of you who wonder how the NYT list works, the bestseller list is announced the week before it hits publication so today I’m getting the news for the May 9 list.
Huge congrats to:
Simone Elkeles at #3 for a second week in a row.
And to Gail Carriger who is back on the extended list at #33 after having one week off. That’s three weeks on the list.
