I'm happy to announce that the DESTINATION: MURDER box set, which includes MATSURI AND MURDER, is a USA Today Best Seller! I've never been involved with anything that's a best seller before. This is my first time getting a #1 Best Seller orange flag in several different categories on Amazon, and my first time ever being on the USA Today list. I owe it all to you, awesome readers!!

It was a Herculean effort to sell this box set hard and push for the list. All 8 of us authors in the set chipped in money for advertising and we all worked hard to get the set the visibility it needed to soar! I'm really proud of everyone coming together to make DESTINATION: MURDER a success.

What did I do to celebrate? I made friendship bracelets with my kids, we had a “toast” at the pool with ice cream, and now I'm enjoying a drink for the evening.

Thanks to all of my readers that purchased this box set and helped us reach our goals! It's most appreciated!
