A few of my favorite things


So I’m out here in New Mexico with the Dude trying out our new-to-us tents at a KOA campground. Day before yesterday was spent at the Grand Canyon, the first real stop on our roadtrip. Yesterday we stopped at the Arizona Meteor Crater which was really stinking neat too. Albuquerque is having their annual hot air balloon festival this week (man, can we time it or what?) so hopefully we’ll get to see pretty balloons in the early morning sky, provided we can wake up early enough.

Last Friday, I had the coolest series of emails from my editor. St. Martin’s Press has been going to great lengths with marketing the AHW serials, as well as several awesome readers tweeting and telling friends about the series. Well, all of your hard work finally paid off: AHW 1 and 5 landed on both the New York Times AND USA Today Bestseller Lists!! SO COOL!!! Number 26 and 35 on the NYT Ebook Bestsellers list.

SQUEE!!! You guys are the bestest!!!

And now, here is a video my house sitter sent of my pup Dixie, who I desperately want to bring along on future trips (there may be a sidecar in my future).
