My book is here. T minus eight days to on-sale date. (Also, I dork out. I ALWAYS DORK OUT.)


Ok...could your smile be any bigger and your eyes sparkle any more?!!! Yay! Congratulations Rachael...you're a star :)

Isn't that cool? Hard work in a pretty package! I'd be handing them out like sticks of gum. "Hi supermarket checker! I wrote a book. See?"

Am I allowed to have a favourite dork? ;) You look fab and your book looks amazing! So proud of you :)

Congratulations! I can totally understand your excitement!

The book is pretty but the author as always is gorgeous, be happy be happy be happy you worked hard for it gal. It's your moment be as big a dork as you wish, with a smile a mile wide and stars in your eyes it looks good to me.

You adorable professional writer you! Congrats! And lots of love! (I'll buy it - and pay for postage to Sweden.)

Yea!! Such a pretty book--I agree, it will cause a lot of people to reach out and take it off the shelves. So exciting for you!

Dude, you are so adorable. I can't wait to buy your book!!!

Wow Wow Wow!

(can't wait to buy my very own)

AWWW!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Can't wait to pick up a copy!

Ooh! I hope the preorders ship soon! I can't wait to get my hands on it. Since I've skipped ahead in the series, I'm dying to know how it all got started.

So excited for you, love.

Yeah!!! So happy for you girl!!! Tell me when it hits and I will let everyone know to go buy a copy. May be in the bay area soon, will call you before.

Congrats Rachael and Lala.

How freakin' cute are you? And why are my eyes tearing up?


Hooray! I can't wait to read it. The cover really turned out nice.

Carol and I will be at the booksigning in SF on the 16th. See you then!

You should be super, super, super, super, super, super, duper excited! I feel super, super, super, super, super, super, duper excited for you! It is a beautiful book. I'll be watching for it on the shelves of my local bookstore.

I'm super duper duper excited for you! YAAAAY!!

Wow! Hourrah! The first published novel! I will look for your book on the shelves of one or two large bookstores in Montreal. If my search is unsuccessful,I will order HTKALS through Amazon. You look and sound great on the video. Bravo again, Rachael!

Awesome! My book buying dollar is ready.

And the idea that your book came out as something that you would want to buy is really cool.

So excited for you!

T minus eight days until I buy my copy for my kindle!

Congratulations Rachael! I love a good story with a happy ending, which is what you writing a book is.

You are so totally allowed to dork out when you are holding your book that you wrote and got published!!

Just so you know, I am soooo buying your book at Target!

WaHOOOOOOO!!! happy dance!

Woot! Woot!! Woot!!!

SO WONDERFUL! Its got to be AMAZING to hold the printed copy of your own book!!

This is so very exciting! A fab day,a beautiful book and a dork out! It doesnt get any better! Cant wait to get my hands on this read! hurry......

I just realized that up until this moment, I had never heard your voice - you sound exactly like I would have expected! I am so looking forward to reading your book, which I am ordering from my local bookstore as soon as I hit send on this comment :)

So exciting! Thank you for sharing the thrill. Downunder we have to wait a little longer. No signings in Oz or NZ? You'd rather go to Venezia? Me too! Happy celebrations to you and all the family, Jan too.

Congratulations! That's so exciting!

It makes me smile to see you so happy and excited. Rock on, Rach!

Let me tell you a story ...

When I was about 4, my mother had a book published. I remember her unpacking the book and jumping up and down and laughing. Of course, I didn't know *why* she was so excited about this particular book, so for years I called that "Mommy's Heehee Book."

So, I think a certain amount of "dorking out" is probably normal. ;)

Congratulations! I'm looking forward to getting my copy.

Happy Happy Joy Joy!

The best thing is your contagious smile!!! You look so thrilled. My dd - an aspiring author herself has been grinning and grinning after watching your video too.


I wish it was going to be in my LYS. It's been in my Amazon Cart for months, but I think I'm going to wait until I can pick it up myself. :-)
I'll have to wave it around and loudly say "Ohmygod, I've been looking for this, I've heard it's wonderful, I'm so glad you have it!"
Yeah, okay, that's my plan.

Duder! A handsome book. Congrats! I'll have to knit you an eelskin dust jacket. When is the big party again?

Congratulations! You're the cutest dorky awesome ever.

I JUST got an email saying my copy has shipped! That means I'll have it in my hands tomorrow or Friday!

Ok, that was the cutest damn thing I have ever watched!!? Watching you glow about your book made me eyes tear up!!
I can't believe you weren't screaming!
Very exciting and you deserve it - Many congratulations!!!

You are too cute! Congrats! Can't wait to read it!!

You are just soooo cute in the video! It's a great feeling eh?

How exciting! Congratulations! The cover is awesome! I WILL buy your book!

As usual, you are just the cutest thing! I'm SO happy for you and I'll be at my local Barnes and Nobel the first day it's available!

So adorable. Very happy for you.

My pre-ordered copy from Amazon.ca arrived TODAY! I'm going to go start reading...

So proud of you!!! Will buy it as soon as it hits the local shelves!


I got mine in the mail Thursday too, all the way up here in Toronto! Can't wait to read it :-)
