Fantastic; well done.

Leigh Russell said...

Thanks JJ - I'm pleased and relieved. Actually, pleased is an understatement. I didn't know about it until my mum called to tell me. I rushed out straight away to buy a copy or two... well, three!

DJ Kirkby said...

Congratulations! You're turning into a bit of a phenomenon.

Jilly said...

Well done you! That should boost your sales!!

Debs said...

Wow, congratulations.

Mel said...

Excellent well done, you are going from strength to strength!

Leigh Russell said...

Between you and me, blog buddies, I'm having a lot of fun right now, and I'm going to enjoy every minute of the ride while it lasts... this rollercoaster is going up at the moment...

Val said...

How incredibly wonderful! Bask in the fun!

Leigh Russell said...

Incredible indeed, Val. It just goes to show, you never know what might be round the corner... and it could be wonderful!

Pat said...

At last I'm on it- such a relief to have a book I can read in bed without getting shoulder strain. Powerful start - I'm hooked.

Jen Brubacher said...

Very well done! That's terrific.

Leigh Russell said...

I hope the book lives up to expectations, Pat. Let me know what you think.

Leigh Russell said...

DJ Kirkby, Jilly, Debs, and Mel -
Thank you all for your good wishes - and thank you for the review, Jilly, which I really appreciate.

Leigh Russell said...

And Jen - thank you

Guillaume said...

That is really cool. Congrats. And I don't visit this blog often enough.

Leigh Russell said...

Hi Guillaume - my blog has been a bit 'newsy' lately as so much has been going on, but I WILL get back to hosting some discussions about writing again and hope you join in!

Pat said...

I certainly will with perhaps the odd question which I would email so as not to give anything away.

Leigh Russell said...

Excellent, Pat. Thank you very much. I look forward to hearing from you!
