Hey guys! Sorry it's been a couple of weeks since I last posted. Life happened. I had a funeral the same day as LIFE IN THE LUCKY ZONE released, so things were stressful for a while. And then I attended a conference with my husband. Anyway, thank you to all you lovely people who participated in my blog tour and giveaway, and who've picked up a copy of the new book.

So yesterday turned out to be crazy busy with writing and errands, so my Update Wednesday fell by the wayside. Anyhow, here's the update with yesterday's numbers. First, the books.
