My Holy Grail: Two hits, one touch

This has been a pretty awesome week for me. In terms of my personal holy grails (of which there are many, LOL), I hit two and touched one. Alas, because of the unexpected and rather longer than predicted heat wave, my brain’s fried so I’ll give you my week in pictures rather than words.

Holy Grail, Hit 1:
Cover Reveal for Sophie’s Encore


I had the most astounding day, with no less than 23  fabulous bloggers taking part and a HUGE amount of interest in the cover, the excerpt and the giveaway (did I mention there are two preview e-copies of Sophie’s Encore up for grabs?).

You can visit the cover reveal post here,

Holy Grail: Touch (A Near ‘Hit’)


Yes! On Tuesday morning, I found Sophie’s Turn on the  list of the 100 best-selling romantic comedies over on It started at #98 and ‘worked up’ to #95 before gradually sliding back down and out over the rest of the day. But still: I touched the holy grail of charts.

Incidentally, Sophie’s Run made it onto the HUMOUR list on that same morning ~ it sunned itself in the #95 slot for a little while!

Holy Grail, Touch 2:
“This Is It” Edit


Yup, that’s me, completing the THIS IS IT proof edit on Sophie’s Encore across yesterday and today. My third book is nearly ready to go to the printer!!
I am so insanely proud of the Grand Finale.

And that was my week.
How was yours?

  1. Congratulations, you had a busy and successful week – all the more to be admired, as the rest of us droop under the heat…

    • LOL, I am drooping all right… well, you know me! But hey ho, with all the windows open and plenty of iced drinks, I’m just about getting there. Thank you for visiting and commenting, Marina, and hope the heat lets up at your end soon. Rock on!

  2. What a week Nicky 🙂 Truly testament to all your hard work and tireless effort, seriously you inspire me. Congrats lassie xx

  3. Hi Nicky,
    I be brief. What can I say? Two out of three ain’t bad.
    You should know me by now.:-) I can’t post without leaving a musical signoff and this time is no exception, especially since you told me precisely what you want to hear. So here it is:

    I’d have gone with Monty Python but there’s no good songs there, 😀 😀 😀

  4. Sounds like an outstanding week, Nicky! I’m so happy for you. And I love your editing spot. 😉 Here’s to hoping next week is even better!
