Thanks so much, Alis!

I'm hoping it will shine a light on all our MNW titles--there are so many brilliant books in the stable.

BTW--I'm about to start TESTAMENT!

Alis said...

Thanks, Eliza - hope you like it!

Congrats Eliza

Saw this yesterday on both the Bookseller website and BBC news. You must be over the moon (no pun intended) with the timing, what with the paperback coming out last month?

Fingers-crossed this translates into a surge in sales!

At last, the stars align...!

Congratulations and good luck in the final round - you have my vote!

Tim Stretton said...

Well done, Eliza!

I'm delighted for you, and also that the remarkable quality of much of the MNW work is being recognised on a wider scale.

Eliza Graham said...

Thank you all--your support and encouragement really touches me! I am indeed over the planet and, as you say, Matt, the timing was great for my paperback's debut.

I'm hoping it helps for ALL of us!

Hi Eliza

Just checked Playing with the Moon (paperback) over on Amazon, and it's ranked a fantastic 388. I think that's the highest ranking anyone from MNW has achieved - so congratulations!

Keep this up and you could well be MNW's first UK bestselling author!

Eliza Graham said...

Thanks, Matt. I do wonder whether SOME of that ranking was owing to my buying seven or eight copies while they were cheap! I'm sending them to reading groups to pass round and review/vote.

But it would be nice to think someone else was buying 'em, too...
