We at Carina Press are thrilled to congratulate Shannon Stacey on her very first appearance on the New York Times Bestseller List. Shannon moved onto the list at #33, with her newest contemporary romance release, Yours to Keep.
In addition, Yours to Keep has been on the Barnes and Noble bestselling Nookbooks list within the top ten since it’s release in early June, going as high as #3. Yours to Keep has been keeping company with such releases as Smokin’ Seventeen by Janet Evanovich and A Dance with Dragons by George. R. R. Martin.
We’re so proud of Shannon’s hard work and dedication to her profession over the past decade, which have helped her grow her career to this point. We’re also extremely proud to have a Carina Press book place on this list only one year after we began publishing books.
And as a side note, and in keeping with the spirit of this blog, I’ll tell you that I was totally thrilled to call Shannon and give her the news last week–and when I called, I warned her I might not get through telling her without crying. And I didn’t. In fact, I was weepy on her behalf for hours after our call. We’ve been working together for many, many years, and many, many books, and I’ve watched her incredible growth as an author. I’ve loved her books since the start, and it’s a tremendously amazing part of my job to be able to say that I love them even more with every book.
Congratulations, Shannon! (now get back to work, you have deadlines to meet!)
