Great News about WINGS!!
I just read author Aprilynne Pike's blog. She reported great news tonight about her debut novel, WINGS. Her novel debuted on May 5th, 2009, just 8 days ago. This is what Aprilynne shared on her blog and the phone call that she recieved from her agent...
So Tara comes on and tells me that Wings has debuted on the New York Times Bestsellers List. And not only on the list, at number six. Can we say Thrilled. Beyond. Belief?!?!??!"
How exciting is that? I am so thrilled for Aprilynne that WINGS is doing so well! I have also noticed that I have had many hits on my blog by people wanting to read the interview I did with Aprilynne back in December.
Some of the things being said about WINGS and Aprilynne....
-"A Fantastic Debut from a Promising New Young Adult Author"
-" WINGS- a faerie story with a whole new twist!"
-Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga says, “Aprilynne Pike’s Wings is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds.”
So, I say to Aprilynne, Congratulations on the great success of WINGS. I always had a good feeling about this book and I love the story. I can't wait for the second book to be placed in my hands.
