Thank You! Thank You Very Much!


What a wonderful week! Thanks to everyone for helping launch Cowboy Christmas in such an outstanding way. Thanks to . . .

. . . my principal who made an announcement in faculty meeting the day of my book release and who has the Cowboy Christmas promo items on her door. Thanks, DM!

. . . the teacher who downloaded the Nook version of Cowboy Christmas to read to his preschool son, but showed me first (knowing my lack of techno savvy-ness). Thanks, Jim!

. . . the indy book store owner who is trying to schedule an event with me, but who had already ordered Cowboy Christmas after reading about it in the Random House catalog. Thanks, Krista!

. . . my editor who sent me the Publishers Weekly review of Cowboy Christmas hot-off-the-press, and then emailed back to say the cover of the book was included in the review—a super honor. Thanks, Diane!

. . . our receptionist at school who posted about the release on Facebook so friends at other schools would know about Cowboy Christmas, then ordered a copy of the book to display on her desk for parents and students to see. Thanks, Carrie!

. . . my niece-in-law who single-handedly located a book store in her community to host a book signing and promised to produce a crowd for the event. Thanks, Leah!

. . . to all of you who have Tweeted, blogged, posted on Facebook, sent emails, and promoted the release of Cowboy Christmas in ways I couldn’t even imagine. Thanks, Penny K., Joyce R., MF Atkins, Gail H., Lauri M., Leslie Z., Laura S., Robyn C., Leslie G., Susan B., and Carrie S.!

. . . and the countless number of people who have emailed, called, and contacted me this week with congratulations, posted to say you’ve received your copies of Cowboy Christmas, and placed an order. Thank you one and all!

Congratulations!! I will have to go look for my own copy of Cowboy Christmas so I can post about it as well.

Rob, this is one of the biggest reasons I love writing children's books, the support one receives from this community. Congrats again!
