Already blogged about it, sweetie.

Therese said...

I just sent you an email about it--but you are the much earlier bird.

(Don't worry, they'll make more exclamation points for you.)

Martha O'Connor said...

What a great article! :) So happy for you! xx

Holly Kennedy said...

Next up, hitting the
New York Times bestseller list!

Kim Stagliano said...

Blogged it AND I have a contest for a signed, first edition of LOTTERY running tomorrow. Oh, do I hear teeth gnashing? Bwahahahahaha!!!!!

Lisa R said...

I have my copy in my hand! I'm going to make you sign it! Too cool. I sent you an e-mail but you beat me! No fair.

Maprilynne said...

Congrats!!!

And this is the first I've heard of Jake Gyllenhaal as your favorite for playing Perry in a movie. *Swoon* love him! Beautiful and talented. He'd be perfect!!

Anissa said...

What an awesome article! Wow!!!

Congratulations! :)

The Anti-Wife said...

Tomorrow! I'm picking one up from B&N on my way home from work.

Gay said...

My copy shipped. Yippee! And so cool (the USA TODAY article). Can't wait to read what the buzz is about. I know it is deserved.

Michelle said...

I just saw a copy of USA Today and read the article! Awesome! What a coup....can't wait to get my copy! Congrats to you! Enjoy all your well deserved success.

Toddie said...

Goosebumps!!! I have now read about you on one of my other daily blog-checks (Galley Cat), and squealed when I saw the story.

Thank GOD I finished Harry Potter a few days ago, so that my reading time is now substantially freed up:).

Kim Stagliano said...

Jake? NO! MATT DAMON!!!!! MATT DAMON!!!! MATT DAMON!!!!!! Patricia, do you hear me? :)

Kim Stagliano said...

Oh, that reminds me, Janet Evanovich has a cool part of her site where you can "vote" for which actor should play the characters from her books. It's a ton of fun, and you get to see the results instantly. Something to think about down the road!

Kimber An said...

Wow! Are you sure you're going to have time for my humble little blog's Cyber-Launch Book Party for you tomorrow? I hope so. I hired a new caterer and the pig's already on the spit.

Josephine Damian said...

If you get a chance, stop by my blog for a tribute to Pat, "Lottery" and dragonflies.

Manic Mom said...

You, my dear, are so famous! Tomorrow is the big, big, biggest day of your life--are you ready!??!?!?!?!?!

Larramie said...

You're good for the cost of those exclamation points, Pat, you have LOTTERY!

The sun will rise much earlier here in the EDT tomorrow, what time will you awake on debut day? ;)

Anne said...

So tomorrow at 9 a.m.when I'm buying my copy of LOTTERY in Chicago,it will be about 4 a.m. in Hawaii. I know you will be awake. Who could sleep?

Happily, I'll have several hours of uninterrupted reading time tomorrow. Can't wait.

Kanani said...

This is WONDERFUL.
I just shows the power of two things:
1. You.
2. Super-Megan

LadyBronco said...

WOOHOO!!!

Can't wait to go grab my hardcover copy on the way home!!!!

That is so cool!

Stephen Parrish said...

Blogged about it too. Now that you're famous I hope you don't forget all the Woodlings who cheered you on.

Are we cool?
Are we not echt?
Are we not the weirdest group to be trusted with an ARC of "Lottery?"

The Writerly Pause only thinks of food, beer, and lately, PAT!

You want movies? We got a movie.
You want an article? We got that too.
You want links? Come see us, we'll SELL you one for the price of beer....
*hic*

And so we start:
"We met Patricia Wood on a yacht in Hawaii....."

Demon Hunter said...

WOW, Pat!!! You've got me in here making my co-workers read your article! Awesome, just awesome. I wanna be you when I grow up! :*) Too cool!

reality said...

congratulations. There is a reason why you have a separate post on my blog. I knew this would happen.
