Wednesday Worthy

I’m fighting a sinus headache that will be significantly better by the time you all read this. It’s humid today and mostly weather related so I’m thinking positive that it will go away.

I wanted to share with you all that POSSESSION hit the Barnes and Noble Self Published bestseller list at #5. (link here  http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/abbi-glines-rockets-to-top-of-self-published-bestsellers-list_b71993 ) This is the second week on the list, the week before it was at #10. I’m thrilled and stunned by it. It’s so great that people are connecting with the characters!

So then emailed exactly one friend–Laura Wright. Normally I text her, but I know she’s frantically trying ot finish a book and din’t want to interrupt her flow. But she she emails right back:

Not surprised! Seriously, it was a great book. The 3rd better live up to it.
 No pressure.
:)
What me feeling pressure? LOLOL!! Seriously I  should get some new friends. You know, the kind that don’t PRESSURE me!  Sigh.
I had some other things I wanted to talk about but my headache isn’t cooperating. So I’ll just put up another picture, this is the one Angela from Under the Covers Blogs used as Sloane for the Bad Boys of Romance Blog Hop

So what do you all think?

    Works for me ;) – In fact he’s giving me a little jump start.

    Sorry about feeling nasty. Sinus headaches are awful. I hope you feel better today.

    I don’t know where you’ll find friends that don’t give you pressure since everyone loves your books :). It’s a good thing that you’re strong and can handle it all. Seriously, we’re not demanding – right ;).

    Have a wonderful day!

    I love this picture. Yea I got a couple of friends that will kick my butt when needed and pick me up afterward. Queen’s Friends will be Friends playing in my mind right now. OK once again showing my age.

    Although my daughter is hooked on the local classic rock radio station. At least I can connect with my Tween through music and be cool when I know all the words to a song. The little victories in motherhood :lol:

    Sorry about the headache! :( At least the humidity helps lower the fire danger out your way. I have friends in pre-evacuation areas in the Black Forest, CO fire. Going to be a bad year, I’m afraid.

    You must find some way to torture support Laura during her deadline. There is no pressure on the third book. Sloane and Kat are awesome characters and you are the awesome writer who brought them to life. So there! :P

    I like this guy but I don’t see Sloane when I look at him.

    Feel better soon, Jen!

    He looks pretty yummy. He needs to get his hand out from in front of his face so I can see it though.

    Aren’t sinus headaches the worst? The weather around here has been giving them to me for the past week. Good thing I have Excedrin! Works like a charm:) Hope yours goes away soon.

    I agree with Silver. You should find a way to torture Laura. Isn’t that what friends are for ;)

    Viki, sinus headaches really do suck. Today’s better so far, but it’s still there so we’ll see.

    Laura’s mean and she knows it too. She calls me *just* to torture me about the way I answer the phone. Sigh.

    Hope you’re having a good day!

    Kat, I love those victories! You and your daughter will always remember sharing music like this!

    Friends like that are truly priceless :-)

    Silver, you’re right about the humidity helping the fires. So sorry for your friends, hope everything turns out all right.

    But the sudden pressure change is not fun for any of our sinuses/allergies. Not great for my RA either but I ignore that.

    I will torture Laura, just not this second as she’s fighting a deadline.

    Dawn, your comment got trapped in moderation for some reason. that rarely happens! I saw it on my phone while getting bloodwork done but waited until I got home to clear it. So weird.

    I tried Excedrin Migraines a while back. People swear by it–didn’t do much for me. But I’m so glad it works for you!

    Ack. Sorry I’m late. I was killing poison ivy first thing this morning and then the day just got away from me.

    I’m sorry you aren’t (weren’t?) feeling well. I hope you feel better soon. Congratulations on Possession’s success! Definitely deserved.

    Yeah, I can see this guy as Sloane. Good one.

    B.E., no reason to be sorry! I was late too, LOL! Had to go do bloodwork and a zillion errands.

    Hope you didn’t touch any poison ivy.

    My headache is much better today, thanks! And thanks on the congrats.

    Glad you like this guy :-)

    I suited up, and was very careful, so probably not. Glad you’re feeling better. =o)

    Good, B.E.! I’ve never had poison ivy rash but I’m pretty sure it’s not something we want to experience :-)
