A Thing

So my partner in crime and I are busy zooming around the US of A on the ILLUMINAE tour, and in-between meeting awesome people and visiting amazing bookstores and exploring this incredible country, we don’t have much time for bloggery and other sorts of sillybuggery.
BUT, I figure I should take the time to commemorate the fact that ILLUMINAE is, holy fucking shit, #5 on The List this week, and, should I ever be stricken with an attack of utter wankerdom, I can now officially introduce myself as a New York Times Bestselling Author at all the swanky dinner parties I never get invited to.
Because, you know, it’s a Thing.
So, THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this absurd little dream of mine come true. All the bloggers, vloggers, Twitterers, Facebookers, Instagrammers and Tumblrers. All the booksellers and librarians. All the bookstore owners and sales reps. All the publicists and marketing crew, the designers and copy editors, the mail roomers and coffee makers. Everyone who has told a friend about this book, spoken online about this book, recommended this book. YOU made this happen, and both Amie and I owe you the world.
Right. back to the road.
If we’re headed to your town on tour, we’d love to see you!

    Incredibly happy for you and Amie. My own copy just arrived and I am digging in immediately. It is beautiful btw, but I think you knew that already.
    I wish I could get over to Phoenix next week but alas…. Have one on me as it is your birthday and I wish to celebrate this amazing book.

    As I’ve tweeted you before Jay. Illuminae has sold out in Philippines. Congrats! I hope it has sold enough to get you guys touring here some time in the future. Next book stop, Never Night!

  3. It’s totally deserved. Illuminae is amazing and I’m so excited for the sequel! I’ll be seeing you guys at Books of Wonder soon, I already have my questions prepared!
