October 9, 2014 would remain embedded in the memories of fourteen authors as THE day they fulfilled their dream and reached their goal. It's difficult to describe the joy that we shared on our loop and in our homes when we read that SWEET CHRISTMAS KISSES was  a BESTSELLER #51 on the USA Today bestsellers list.
When I read the caption, the emotion made me speechless for a moment, then I jumped from my chair, kept mumbling, Oh my God, Oh my God, and fell back in front of the monitor. My husband saw my face pale and rush to my side. "Are you OK?" He thought I was having a heart attack.

What a giddy feeling. But soon I shouted at the top of my lungs, "I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author," and I couldn't stop laughing and babbling. We had a drink to celebrate reaching this milestone.
When I attended my first RWA National Conference in 2004 and saw some 4,000 writers, bustling in the ballroom for lunch, my stomach had constricted. If all these people were competing to be published there was no way on Earth I would succeed. And yet here I am, ten years later, standing on the top of the mountain, screaming, "TaDa!"

SWEET CHRISTMAS KISSES made it to the USA Today bestsellers list for three weeks. We have a lot-- a huge lot--of readers to thank for appreciating, buying and loving our sweet romances.
How did it  happen? With hard work, perseverance, a lot of support, a good network, and a "little bit of blooming luck", and mostly an amazing team of determined authors who gave it their 101%.
Thank you my Sweet Christmas Kisses fellows for making the impossible reachable.

Her Christmas Cruise small
HER CHRISTMAS CRUISE, my contribution to this box, will take you on a wonderful cruise to Spain and Italy with Julia and Tony.

The perfect fiancé is a cheater and the fabulous Christmas wedding is off. But the would-be honeymoon cruise may fulfill the dreams of Julia and her unexpected companion.

Although it's so difficult to climb that ladder of success to the USA Today bestseller list, three authors did it again with another box, Ten Christmas Brides, which became a bestseller on October 29, 2014.
