I saw VANYR at Borders today

This might not seem like a big deal, since With Nine You Get Vanyr has been in print since February, but actual bookstore sightings have been few and far between.  But the Pentagon Centre Borders persevered and, thanks to Samhain's new relationship with Ingrams, succeeded in ordering five copies.  (Thank you, Preston!)  Better yet, when I wandered into the store Sunday evening, there were only four left to sign.  Someone had bought one.  (Insert major happy dance here.)
Writers are soooo easy to please.  This raises the verified count of stores carrying Vanyr to four: Cover to Cover (you are carrying it, aren't you quietselkie, user asks nervously), the Landmark Waldenbooks, Turn the Page Bookstore Cafe and the Pentagon Centre Borders.  My uncle in Florida is doing his bit, dutifully visiting local stores and requesting it (all on his own too--I never thought to ask) but so far no luck.
It's been a good day for commerce overall.  My Inner Designer Junkie was unexpectedly sated by a visit to TJ Maxx.  Found a Just Cavalli jacket in my size at a deep discount.  I was so entranced by the print, I didn't notice the buttons were missing until I got it into the fitting room.  Can you say "deeper discount"?  *bg*  Better still, I had the perfect buttons waiting for it at home.  My spring/summer wardrobe is saved!
And I'm almost healthy too.  One more visit to the doctor should do it.  Then it's back to con reportage.  Jana Oliver has placed in the honors section of so many awards since RavenCon, I positively need to blackmail her.  Gotta figure out how she did it...besides writing a great book that is.  ;-)
