True Accomplishment

I just learned that one of my author's books (an idea that I came up with) has been chosen as a Book of the Month Club alternate, as well as a choice for all their other book clubs. This is awesome, especially for a mass market paperback! It's a real writer's accomplishment. It hardly ever happens to a non super-star or celebrity author any more.

Congratulations to both you and your author! Such great news - that must be a great feeling. Time to celebrate - bust out the glass of wine and do a little happy dance!

I'm wondering if this sense of accomplishment counts for the ISO Book of the month club, too? I know it's considered "on the fringes", but three books I'm in were selected by ISO/BOMC this year and two mentioned my name and blurbed the stories. I'm really not blowing my own horn here (I'd plug the books if I were), but thanks for this post because it gave me a little piece of mind after receiving a peculiar rejection yesterday from an intern who is only on the job a month or so and thought my work was "unripe".

Congrats! And an extra pat on the back to you for thinking of it and then going for it, too. I've lost my thrill with book clubs because of the best-seller factor, to be honest. I prefer the mid-list and obscure. A lot of it is better than the best-sellers!

May you be starting a trend by getting a new author a shot with BOMC.

Wow, you couldn't just leave it at 'one of my author's books'?

Had to include that it was your idea?

Wow.
