I’m right there on the table next to Stephenie Meyer and beneath the fantastic Divergent.
If the camera panned upwards you’d see my grinning like a loon. I’m on the table next to Stephenie Meyer.
Is on the table next to Breaking Dawn.
If you’d have told me this a year ago I would have laughed in your face at how ridiculous you were being. But look people – there it is. In Waterstones no less.
I signed my first copies in store. The staff in Waterstones were brilliant and invited me back to do a reading or signing. (The girl who works there looks just like Keira Knightley.)
I am still grinning like a loon. It’s particularly funny because Stephenie Meyer was the reason I started writing in the first place. I loved Twilight and then when I was struggling to think of something to do to make some money I thought, ‘I know I’ll write a book! Stephenie Meyer’s a gazillionaire and all for writing about vampires. How hard can it be?’
Turns out, very hard, but look, I still made it.
I feel like this story should be in the fairy tale section of Waterstones.
