I LIKE BEING ON TOP

Last Monday I received an email from Deb Scott of The Best People We Know radio show (she’s interviewed me about my BRCA mutation – and that interview enjoyed great success as the top interview on all of blog talk radio back in its day). Deb must know of my affinity for being on top, because she let me know that my book, “Ms. Cheevious in Hollywood: My Zany Years Spent Working in Tinsel Town” was the #1 New Release in its category on Amazon.

(Click here to tweet that).

I won’t even begin to try to explain to you the nuances of Amazon and how it calculates these things. I belong to a very esteemed group of independent (and some traditionally published) authors on Facebook, and none of them can explain how or why Amazon does things, but I should be completely honest here. My first thought was:

This must be a mistake. My book isn’t cheap. It’s in hardcover. Who, besides the fabulous people who follow the blog, and some close friends and family, even buys hardcover books anymore?

But it wasn’t. Maybe I was right that both men and women like a good tale of recovery from divorce and the great American Dream of making our dreams come true! Ya think?

Nevertheless, I’m happy to show you below just how FREAKING COOL it was to see my very own book displayed on Amazon with a #1 next to it! And it was #8 overall in its category. Granted, there are only about nine-hundred and sixty-some books in the Single Parent category on Amazon, and my book is not only listed there. It’s also in the Memoirs and Entertainment (I think, as of this writing it’s #31 in hardcover memoirs, and hey… as of this writing, it’s still at #3 in Single Parents, but who’s counting?) categories.

Number 1

 

 

I won’t lie. I like the look of this.

I’m not quite sure how this happened. If I knew, I’d be doing whatever it was that made it happen every single, friggin’ day.

Who am I kidding? I’d be glued to my computer screen every minute possible, clicking the mouse, banging on buttons, smoke rising from the keyboard, making it happen some more. Because dammit, I LIKE BEING ON TOP.

But wait. There’s more…  

This weekend I posted a photo of me, lying amid a pile of the advance paperback copies of my book, and someone on Facebook told me something extraordinary — that they were loving the book so much, they couldn’t put it down.

Cool Book Feeback

 

This is the stuff dreams are made of (and of course, I posted a video “If You Can Dream It – You Can Make It Happen” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dzka6cIJQM)

You can still get a copy of my book (of COURSE) by going either to AMAZON, or right here on the blog (though it’s cheaper on Amazon, of course).

 

That’s all I got for ya. Keep dreaming, and keep making stuff happen. It works.

Ms. Cheevious is the alter-ego of Lisa Jey Davis (former publicist, and television talent manager, current award-winning writer & author, & health and fitness pro). Though Ms. Cheevious has become known for humor via the blog and social media, offering a lighter and brighter look at life… the blog was originally a precursor to Lisa Jey's long overdue book "Ms. Cheevious in Hollywood" which offers a fabulous, funny peek into what really goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood… a Hollywood with Lisa Jey and her funny “serendipities” in it. Think Lucille Ball meets Chelsea Handler meets the girl next door (with a little chocolate and vodka). It depicts with hilarity the innocent mistakes Lisa Jey made when launched back into the big, bad single jungle, as an unassuming single-mother in the City of Angels. It’s also about the beautiful, interesting life she led while her loving, incredible sons kept her grounded and sane amid fantastic events, new friends, parties and field trips. It also shows the turmoil and heartbreak that comes with dating and single mom life. All blog content © 2015 Ms. Cheevious aka Lisa Jey Davis
