Independence Day

And the crowd goes wild.

Yesterday, editor and all-around good egg Keith Kahla informed me that “Crashers” is going to be one of two Indie Next List for July! And will be promoted on the IndieBound Web site and in their stores.

IndieBound is a Web site that supports independently owned bookstores nationwide, like Annie Bloom’s and Powell’s. And apparently, they really like “Crashers!”

Here’s a link to the May issue, to give you a sense of what I mean.

This is huge, huger, hugest news because…

…wait for it…

…the novel now has the support of Barnes & Noble, Borders, independent bookstores, librarians and Costco. When you count the totality of the book-selling industry, that leaves just (….hang on…doing the math…carry the seven… lowest denominator…got it) NO ONE!

Pretty much? We shot the moon.
