Friday the 13th? BEST. DAY. EVER!

It’s Friday the 13th.

I made it on the NYT’s best sellers list at #13.

Sarah Augustus just made me pee my pants 13 times with this picture she took.

She stood in line for hours, made her husband drive across state lines, and had my new favorite author sign a book FOR ME!  OMG.  I’m fan girling.  And if you haven’t read this book, go read it.  I read it last month and absolutely loved it.

This day calls for a CELEBRATION!  How many books do you think I’m giving away today?  THIS CONTEST ENDED 7/14

  10. Congrats Colleen! This is well deserved and I’m sure you are going to keep rising! Happy Friday the 13th!

  11. THAT’S JUST BUTTERFLYING AMAZZINNGGGG!!!! :D I am sooooo happy for you! ;) Especially with Slammed coming in 13th plus getting your FAVORITE author’s signed book that just a cherry on the top. You’re books are sooo fabulous that I had withdrawals from Will and Lake. I couldn’t read anything for days because I had to keep going back and still do. Your poetry inspired me to write more. I stopped writing mine for couple of months because I just couldn’t come up with something that satisfied me so I kept ripping pages off and throwing them in the bin. After Slammed and POR I just wrote anything at the top of my mind and kept it so maybe later I might use it. Whenever I was upset I went to read your books and they just cheer me up. So hearing how well Slammed is doing I just get so excited and do the happy dance hehe. I also keep coming back to your blog post because they always puts a smile on my face. :D

    Congrats once again!

  12. Congrats on NYT list!! I’m so glad to see it there, these are my two fav books and they abso-butterfly-lutely deserve to be there!

  16. I love your books! I read heard about Slammed from Recommended for you from Amazon. I devoured it that night!:) it was amazing! I was estatic to find out about Pioint of Retreat. Congrats on your great Friday the 13th!:)

  17. Congratulations. Having an autograph from a celebrity is an amazing feeling. This just made the sweet of the day. I used to be a big professional wrestling fan when I was kid. My dad got an autograph of my favorite wrestler Barry Windham and Lex Luger. I hadn’t thought about those autographs since he left. Thank you!!!

  23. Happy friday the 13th to you! Can’t wait for another book to read about will and layken! Congrats! Now maybe I can get my favorite author to sign a book for me. (hint… hint…) ;)

  24. I always have good friday the thirteens! My 5 yr old was born on one! I think this deserves a diet coke to celebrate!

  25. I’m digging the wired, but cool fan love here. I mean I like you and everything, a lot in fact, but my ass ain’t driving across states to bring you no book. Now that being said, COOL BEANS FOR YOU!! Friday the 13th’s always weirded me out though. I’m always afraid Jason’s gonna pop out on me.

  26. Happy Best Day Ever to you! Let’s make this a new holiday. Maybe Hallmark will create a few new cards for it. We can call it the Best Day Ever Holiday & it will always fall on Friday the 13th.

  27. Fridays already were awesome! Congratulations to you! All of these FANTASTIC indie authors are having great weeks (you, Tracey Garvis-Graves Jamie McGuire). Thank you for the fantastic reads and for this opportunity.

  28. Now you see how much you are truly loved. Congratulations on the book and thank you for all of your generosity.

  29. Congrats! To be honest I’m so not surprised because your books are off the charts awesome! Looking forward to more awesomeness from you. Finishing Point of Retreat for the third time this month. I can’t get enough of Will and Lake.

  30. I so want Slammed! My friends suggeted this book days ago and I’ve been wanting and drooling to get a copy. I was planning to get it on my credit card cutoff (because I don’t want my husband to freak out when he see my purchases for the last month). So when my friends postef your link in our little book group, I was so thrilled for the chance! Thank you so much! And bdw, Friday the 13th isn’t bad, right? You are so lucky :) I really enjoyed Fault in Our Stars! I’m happy for you, I think I can feel your excitement from your post. And thank you for being so generous to us! Congratulations to you, too :) I’m sure you deserve all the best not just today. More power to you!

  31. I suspect this will be one of many ‘best days ever’ for you. You are going to climb right up that chart!

  32. I love that your books had music to go along with them. I’d never heard of the Avett Brothers before I read your books, so I downloaded a bunch of their music (the songs from your book seem to be very popular on iTunes . . . hmmm). I really, really like them! Thank you for introducing me to them and for your awesome books. I’ve been telling everyone about them : D

  33. Ok so its my first time posting a comment and I want to say congrats on the NYT best seller’s! I read both of your books and loved loved loved them! I’m not sure if my family even got feed, if the kids got bathed, or when they went to bed for like four days!!! I couldn’t put the butterfling books down! Can’t wait for the next one! Thanks for keeping me entertained! (sometimes a little too much so)! Keep up the great books!

  34. Happy Friday. Congrats on the book and #13. That’s awesome. Love your books and cannot wait for the next one. Took me all of 6 hours to read both when I found them. :)

  35. So awesome! I had a butterflying good day too! I was inches away from Colin Farrell outside his hotel at Comic Con!! So hawt!!

  36. Aw, congratulations to you! You definitely deserve it! I LOVE your books so much. They’re so beautifully crafted, I can’t even begin to tell you how much they’ve affected me. You’re incredibly talented, I hope you’re aware of that. Keep up the great work! (And I can’t wait for Will’s story!!) :D

  37. I’m so happy for you! I can feel your positive energy through my computer screen, ya know! Thanks for being so giving.

  38. I’m so happy this Friday the 13th was so good for you! My day was good but typically Friday the 13th freaks me out, even though I’m not a superstitious person. It has more to do with my husband’s first deployment to Iraq. He left Friday, January 13, 2006. Happy he made it home okay though!

  39. Colleen, I just LOVE both of your books and can’t wait to read more!
    Please, please write more. We so want to read about Will & Lake :))

  40. forget the movie..they should turn slammed and POR into a series on hbo or something. that way we can have will and lake every week, instead of once on the big screen.

    or, you know, once, and then buy the dvd when it comes out and watch it 10,08972908734987230 times. :)

  41. Your books are my absolute favorites! I finished both, back to back, a couple of weeks ago and I’m still thinking about the gang. I told all of the readers that I encountered on vacation that they must read Slammed and Point of Retreat! You’ve done amazing work and I wish you great success!

  42. Yea! Your signed copy is so cool! Love both of your books and are so happy for your success. I think I read both of your books in 2-3 days. (No, not much else was accomplished on those days!) Keep up the great work – I can’t wait for the next book!!!

  43. OMG! Signed by John Green!!! But a signed Slammed and Point would be an equally OMG for me! I can’t get over the stories! I have to stop myself from reading them over and over again! Congratulations on making it to 13!

  44. Oh my! I love The Fault In Our Stars! Lucky you for having a signed copy of that book! Congrats. But I would love to have a signed copy of your own book too! LOL! :D Seriously, I hope I win this time. Haha! XD

  45. OMG! wht a great Fri 13th! Mine not so lucky! hoping u can change that! thanks forhe chance to win a give away!


    THANK YOU SO MUCH for sending me a copy of your book! I was on my way home to my parent’s house the time I got the Amazon gift. I hope you have seen the BIG smile on my face! The internet that time was super slow so I wasn’t able to download and thank you sooner. When I returned home last night, I was beat to max, and I slept while the book was downloading. I got it now and I can’t wait to start it. My other books could wait now. I am excited to tell my friends about it! Oh, my, sorry for my non-sense blabbing. You just made me so happy, I just want you to know :)

    Thank you so much Ms. Colleen. You’ve totally brightened up my day =)
    More power to you and God bless you everyday!

  47. Well crapolla , I’m two days late for this ! That’s what I get for not stalking Facebook for a few days. Boo.

  48. LOVE JOHN GREEN! I am from Indpls., which is where he lives now. Before I figured it out, I was SOO impressed at how much research he did with his characters, etc. He named several landmarks in Indpls, which brought back fond memories of doing my 9th grade leaf collection at Crown Cemetery, etc. How stumped I was when I read his bio that he lives in Indy now!
