Remember last week when I asked you a few million times to vote for me in a book club contest? Well, I am now officially at liberty to announce that -- thanks to all of you and your exquisite voting support -- Life After Yes is the final SheKnows Book Club pick of the year!
The book club discussion will take place in October/November. If you are interested in joining or learning more details, please click HERE. And stay tuned for news about upcoming contests, interviews, reviews of LAY and details about a live chat I will be doing over at SheKnows.
A little info on SheKnows: As one of the fastest growing destinations on the web, SheKnows (www.sheknows.com) is consistently one of the top 10 properties for women, generating over 150 million page views and more than 12.5 million unique visitors per month.

So, it goes without saying, but I will say it anyway: I am thrilled. Honored. Pumped. All of the above.
And I am very grateful to SheKnows for providing me and my book this wonderful opportunity, to the readers and bloggers who nominated Life After Yes for consideration as a pick, and to all of you out there who took precious time from your days to vote for this rookie in the writing game. I have said it time and time again here, but it's true: writing is in so many ways a very isolating, even lonely, experience. And feeling as supported as I do now is really nothing short of amazing. Thank you.
Finally, a big thanks also to my very talented fellow nominees: Chandra Hoffman (Chosen), Claire Avery (Hidden Wives) and Melissa Senate (The Love Goddess' Cooking School). I look forward to reading these three books and I encourage you all to pick them up as well.
Okay, that's it for today. Check back tomorrow for my earth-shattering Cheesecake Epiphany.
(And, again, thank you!!!!)
