I am a bad, bad blogger

I've been home from my last jaunt (Nashville) for a week and I'm just now finding time to post. Sigh. I'll try harder to check in now that my travel schedule has slowed.

So how about some Black Friday good news? I learned this afternoon that after two long years on the market, Christmas Jars (paperback edition) has finally hit the New York Times Bestseller list. We'll appear at #24 in next week's edition. It's a humbling, exciting, totally unexpected surprise. It's unusual for a book to hit the list for the first time in its third year. But we'll take it and thank our lucky stars above. (And Someone else above, to be more accurate.)

It's certainly nice to be home. I'm finalizing details for my next book (Recovering Charles) and getting ready to begin writing the novel in earnest. Right now it's a simple two-page synopsis. By April 1st it better be just a TAD longer, or I'm in a boat load of trouble :)

More later...


  1. Hey, Jason, I'm hoping you'll sign a couple books for me. I'm giving them as Christmas gifts to some of my fam in Florida. Are you around for the holidays?

  2. Yep, we'll be around. Would be happy to sign them! And I just read your bio on your preschool blog. You play piano? Guitar? A minor in music? Good grief! You're a talented woman!

  3. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I stood flapping my arms for five minutes because you're famous and I'm stupid for famous people.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed the books, and will be fist in line for the next one.

  4. Oh, yes, you've reminded me that I should probably update that page! I also have a personal blog. Nothing exciting, just family stuff, but I'll email you the invite to read.

  5. Please do. I tried to check it out already and it told me I wasn't worthy :)

  6. East of Eden! I LOVE the visual of you flapping your arms. Did you get any air? :)
