I’ve been to big conferences where (really) famous writers sit in panels and talk about the time when they first hit the New York Times bestseller list.  About how they received wine and flowers, etc. and were so thrilled. 

Well– this morning I received the COOLEST gift from my publisher.  I was at home doing my Saturday chores when the UPS man stopped by.  I wondered what in the world could be so important as to require a Saturday delivery, when he comes down the walk carrying a pretty blue box.  When I open the box, I discovered . .

 . a pajama-gram!  
LOL!  This lovely little gift box contained slippers, cozy flannel pajamas (have I mentioned that I love pajamas well enough to speak in?), bath fixins (salts, pillow, loofa, etc), and a door hanger that says “Unwinding.”  And a congratulatory note from my friends at Tyndale House.  
I’m tickled pink–or blue.  (Actually, the pajamas are pink).  Just perfect!
And I think it’s really apt that I was in my pajamas when the UPS man arrived.  🙂

    How fun! I’m truly jealous!
    By the way, I forgot to post the other day on how much I appreciated your modesty post.

    Congratulations on the NYT list! The only surprise to me is that it didn’t happen sooner.

    That is my kind of gift! I bought Tinker Bell pajamas this weekend and I may just wear them all week.
