Thank you!!

by Julie Hyzy

My post today is a big, happy, huggy THANK YOU!!!




Thanks to YOU and to all the readers who picked it up the first week it was out, Fonduing Fathers is #19 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Woo-hoo!!! This is the sixth in the series, and number five, Affairs of Steak, made it onto the "extended" bestseller list last year. But this year we hit THE list!!

I've been dancing around here ever since I heard the news. This means that the publisher (Berkley) will now start adding "New York Times Bestselling Author" to my book covers. They don't do that until you crack the top 20. Can you see why I'm so excited?

What's more: Fonduing Fathers hits the list this Sunday, January 20th. That's Inauguration Day. How appropriate for a White House mystery!

Thank you so much for reading, reviewing, emailing, and all the lovely congratulations on Facebook! You are the best!!!!

  1. Congratulations! That is so awesome! I love that series, but then again I also love your Manor House mysteries too. You should celebrate with a Inauguration Day Fondue Party!

  5. I just bought it and the other four that I did not have at my local independent book store. I look forward to reading them and perhaps re-reading Eggsecutive Orders which I loved. I don't know why I did not buy the others sooner.

  6. I second the inauguration day fondue party. I have 4 fondue pots that I haven't used in ages. I think it's time to get them out of the cupboard and fire them up!

  10. Hi Julie..I'm just now reading your January 17th post. Wow! Congrats! Hooray! And all that! How wonderful for you. I've had the book since it came out so I can take pride in knowing I contributed to this great news. I haven't read it yet. Same problem. I save my favorite authors because I know once I read the book, I have to wait a long time for the next! Love that it hit the list on Jan. 20th. You couldn't have made that one up :-) Congrats again. Keep on dancin' and writing those great stories. Adrienne in Minnesota
