Fit Quickies #1 Bestseller at Penguin/Alpha
Got a message from my publisher.
They tell me that Fit Quickies is #1 Best Seller for Penguin/Alpha Books on Amazon and Books -a – Million booksellers this week – not only for new releases, but all Penguin/Alpha books, and that includes the Complete Idiot’s Guides! I don’t know much about publishing, but I do know they were quite excited about it. I couldn’t wait to tell you.
AND I couldn’t wait to thank you for the amazing, enthusiastic support you have been through the whole Fit Quickies book creating process and beyond by snapping up your copy this week and in pre-orders.
YOU made the difference. I am deeply appreciative.

Fit Quickies on the shelf at Barnes and Noble
Yesterday, a Friday thrill like none other when I walked in cold to Barnes and Noble and there was Fit Quickies on the shelf!
Of course the grabbed a pen and insisted that I sign each copy right away – and they started selling on the spot, Everyone at Barnes and Noble was lovely, apparently enamored of my unbridled enthusiasm unless, of course, they were just being polite.
Thank you everyone at Barnes and Noble, Chico, California on Friday February 8!
After the fun at Barnes and Noble, it was on to the NPR station to be interviewed by Nancy Wiegman for the uber popular NPR show “Nancy’s Bookshelf”. This was SO much fun, and guess what? They are so thrilled with the interview and the book that they asked me if I would mind if, instead of airing the interview now, they instead air during the upcoming pledge week when they have high profile guests lined up to attract more listeners (Paula Poundstone for one). AND they want to give away some copies of the book as pledge prizes and have be back in the studio at the same time to answer questions live from callers! Does that sound like fun or what?

The Fit Quickies Gallery is rapidly expanding as each day another person or two receives their book. Here is the link to the Fit Quickies Gallery on Pinterest (you’ll see it top row, center): Fit Quickies Gallery
I would LOVE to have your picture up too! All you need to is snap a picture of yourself with the book – lots of ways to do that, as you’ll see in the Gallery – and send it to me either on facebook or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

With deep appreciation to you – without whom this couldn’t have been done.
Lani, what exciting news about the NPR interview and most especially the bestseller status!!! Whoo-hoo! You so deserve this and I am so happy for you!
Still waiting very impatiently for my (pre-ordered)copy to arrive – Amazon tells me delivery by the 14th and I am ready, for sure.
Hope you are thoroughly enjoying this wonderful week.
Thank you! I’m glad you share the excitement and I so appreciate you stopping by to comment.
By the 14th? Sheesh, I hope it arrives sooner than that, especially as you pre-ordered! Go figure on their delivery schedule. Where are you located?
You must let me know the minute she arrives, and then we can get you in the Gallery! http://pinterest.com/lanimuelrath/fit-quickies-gallery/
I will for sure leave a pic in the Pinterest gallery as soon as the book arrives! I’m in Alabama so maybe the delivery trucks are just taking their sweet time 🙂
Thanks Teresa! You can also just upload to fb and I can put it in the gallery, as I don’t think you can post directly to a collection on someone else’s Pinterest page – or can you? I’m still limping along in social media!
