catching my breath

For the faithful followers of this blog, I'm sorry I haven't kept you up to date. Traveling to one city each day with an event every evening means there isn't enough time for my usual online routine. I did keep everyone up to date on Facebook, but that was about all I could manage. (So if you want my daily updates, do check out my Facebook page and click LIKE. It's AuthorRhysBowen.)

I've now finished my tour and I'm at our condo in Arizona, catching my breath.... and enjoying all the good news. The Twelve Clues of Christmas made the New York Time bestseller list at #25 this weekend and also the Publisher's Weekly list at #25 and was mentioned on USA Today's blog... and was the Number One Cozy mystery on and the Number One historical mystery.

So all good news. Now it's hard to wind down after rushing to catch a plane every morning, removing shoes, jacket etc etc, being patted down because I was wearing a skirt (that's a first, isn't it?). And finding myself in a small plane, squashed in next to a man who was an aged lady's man and still thought he was hot stuff. Luckily just for an hour's flight.  He told me he was a golf pro and he could teach me a lot of new things. He gave a lecherous leer while saying this. I told him I was a mystery writer and could kill with no trace.

I'm now going to enjoy Thanksgiving week with family before I do more events early in December. I hope you can take the time to enjoy your Thanksgivings too.
