Well! It's been a whirlwind start to 2019 and I'm a bit late with this post, but am nevertheless ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED to say that the paperback of Dear Mrs Bird is officially a Sunday Times Bestseller.
Last week it entered the bestsellers chart at #5 and I've just heard that it will spend another week in the Top 10, at #8. Blimey! It really is heady stuff as the Top Ten is chockablock with incredible authors, and to be rubbing shoulders (as it were) with megastars and Man Booker winners....well, it wasn't what I had expected when I was writing Dear Mrs Bird! As you can probably tell from the selfie below....#overexcited.
The hugest thank you to Picador and Pan Macmillan, who have done an incredible job on the release of the paperback. And of course, to everyone who has bought, stocked, talked about and supported Dear Mrs Bird - thank you so very much.
And here's the proof! It wasn't until I saw it printed in the actual newspaper that I really believed what I'd been told. Flipping heck.
