It's every author's secret fantasy—to write a book and have it debut at the top of the New York Times best seller's list. At least this is what my husband/six-time co-author tells me. I don't know if that's really my story.
Well, maybe just a little bit.
Okay, I admit it: It is kinda the hotness to see my name at the top of the institution of record—the Bible of the book industry. (Click on the page up top to see what I'm talking about up close.)
I did a little shameless self-promotion for "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" a month or so ago, explaining the writing process between me and Steve Harvey, the comedian-turned-relationship guru for whom I wrote the book. What I didn't tell you is that he warned me he had every intention of getting the book on the New York Times best seller's list—by telling millions of listeners about "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" on his hit morning radio program, The Steve Harvey Morning Show, and taking it to every big television program that would have him. I give it to Steve Harvey—the man is a promotional machine.
Still, I am humbled by the success of this, our book.
And, above all, blessed.
Here, a little Marvin Sapp to help put to song how I feel about this, my 15th book, going big time.
