I know it's just a list created by Amazon and updated hourly based on some strange algorithm no one understands BUT STILL it was pretty cool to see my name listed with the mega stars of Young Adult fiction (including Shakespeare, who I never really thought of as a YA author, even though everyone reads him in high school). Many of the authors on the list have movies or television series after their books, so even though I was only at #99 for oh, maybe six hours, I'm pretty honored. Thanks you guys for helping me get there. Maybe I'll get back on the list again one day!
