The photo below shows me admiring the first copy of book I ever spotted in a store. It was the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Holyoke, MA. As you can imagine this was an exciting moment.
I'm really curious about where else Lord Lightning might be showing up, so I'm calling on all my web friends to help me out and let me know if Lord Lightning made it to the shelves in your town. To encourage you to participate I've created a contest and will be offering offering prizes to randomly selected people who report their book spottings.
UPDATE: The contest is now over so links to it have been removed. The winners were drawn on November 1, 2010 and notified by email. Congratulations to Birdy who won the copy of Blood Sugar 101.
I really appreciated the photos people sent in. Seeing my book displayed in so many different places around the US and Canada was a thrill. Seeing it on people's Kindles and Nooks was great too.
My editor tells me the book is selling well which is great news in today's difficult economic environment. Thanks to everyone who bought a copy. I hope you enjoyed reading it!
