Yippee!!!

I just have to share!! CARPE DEMON is # 7 on the Booksense Summer Paperback Picks list!!!! I'm SO THRILLED!! (Click the link to see the whole list. Great company!)

I'm also thrilled that I'm this close (picture finger and thumb really close together) to being finished with the book I'm currently working on. I have a feeling it's going to be an all-nighter, but that's okay.

And tomorrow I have big plans: Rooms2Go is opening a kids store in Austin, and we're buying the kiddo a bedroom set. How's THAT for an exciting life?

As for Star Wars ... sigh. I saw the original 82 times in the theater (that's not a typo) and love the original trilogy. The new stories, though, just don't do it for me, for a whole buncha reasons. And I really think it's the story, not just the fact that I'm a grown-up now. Ah well. I will see the new one in the theater, but I'm not in a hurry.

Wow, I saw the original Star Wars 27 times and I thought I had it bad.

Congrats on the BookSense list! That is awesome stuff - you must be totally knocked out!

Hugs and major congrats!

I'm very excited to read Carpe Demon, Julie. Congrats on all the success!!

And for Star Wars, well, these new movies don't have Han Solo. I like them (haven't seen Sith yet) just not as much as the original trilogy.

Kristen Painter said...

Jana, I totally agree with you. Han Solo was dreamy...

Julie Kenner said...

Thanks y'all!!!!! I'm really excited. And, yes, of course you're right about Han Solo. Siiggggghhhhh. Of course, my first crush was Luke, but I was quite the young thing then. I grew up and realized who the hunk was :)

Oh, and to the jerk who posted the spam: go find another blog to bother!!!!

I like 'em big, hairy, and strong. Chewie's the man for me!

**snicker** Okay, I can't type that with a straight face. Han it is.

Congrats on CARPE DEMON!

Congrats, Julie!

And we all know R2-D2 is the real heartthrob. If he has a vacuum cleaner attachment and can wash dishes, I think I'm in love.
