I am a little excited ...


















All right. So once I started collecting excitement gifs I couldn't stop! Cumulatively these convey a little of my state of mind in this wake of news that ...


DAYS OF BLOOD & STARLIGHT 

DEBUTED AT #4 ON THE 
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST!

(See gifs for general emotional expression :-)


This is ... you know, it's ... really really ... well. I'm verklempt. But I'm also in a rush and wasted all my time getting gifs, so more later!




But also this, my FAVORITE BOOKSTORE DISPLAY EVER!!!



That's from a store called Dymocks (a chain in Australia) Joondalup (a town in Western Australia), and this display just knocks my socks off. I LOVE IT!!! 

THANK YOU DYMOCKS JOONDALUP!


And ...

THANK YOU READERS FOR BUYING MY BOOK AND PUTTING IT ON THE BESTSELLER LIST!!!!!!!!!!!

WOO HOO! Congrats. That has to be an amazing feeling - I know it's a well deserved one. Sometimes the books that end up best-sellers perplex me, but not this one.

Connie Onnie said...

Cool cool cool!!! You deserve it because your books are off the hook!

Jennifer said...

Major Congrats! Screen caps of the listing! More gifs! We need a meme!

YAY! Now I just need Amazon to deliver my copy.

ryan graudin said...

And you totally deserve it! Your writing in Days has me swooning!

tone almhjell said...

AAAAHHHHH! And so deserved! Days is a masterpiece, a gem, a thing of wonder! And even though I didn't think it was possible - it's EVEN BETTER than Daughter. How do you do it? How? You completely rock.

You know that feeling when you just want to devour a book - but you know that when you finish it you will be bereft so... while you are drawn to read every minute you try to stay away to help savor it? Yeah, I have a houseful of kids and myself in that realm right.now. with DOB&S. Well, except for the one who completely inhaled it in 10 hours- she's fulfilled, for now! You are awesome and that spot on the NY Times list - SO deserved! Congratulations! My girls are begging me ask just one little thing: Could You Please Write Faster ;) No pressure :)

June G said...

You deserve it and it's about time. I'm still amazed Daughter didn't make the list. You're a writing jaggernaut! Thanks for your great writing tips in Publishers Weekly, too! My friend hasn't started reading book two, yet. I'm going to surprise her and buy it for her. We were in the hallway at work, talking about the series and screaming, "Brimstone!!!!". People passing by thought we had totally lost it! Lol... You're awesome!

Yay! Congratulations! I loved your use of the Joey Graceffa's Hunger Games parody gif. Well played, madam. And I wanted to say that it was an absolute pleasure to meet you at the Santa Monica Public Library :)

Laini Congratulations you deserve it!
I can not wait for the book goes on sale in Mexico.
By the way, I've met several fans, who want to help with the petition the Publisher!
Several people of Tijuana and all Baja California!
Really hope you can come to Tijuana, we are very excited!
And once again, I love you Laini, really!
The guys who are helping, they say Hi, especially my two best friends, Kathy and Bryan!

Hi Laini,

I just saw this and wanted to give you a big fat CONGRATS on the success of Days of Blood and Starlight! I am so curious... figures were given for Daughter of Smoke and Bone... what are the sales figures for days? And how many languages is it available in?? I would like to get an idea of the scope of this wonderful second book.

Side note: I will be buying Dreams of God and Monsters on the day it comes out, just like I did with Days. Keep it up, girl!! <3

-Erin
