Woo-hoo! When I checked at 10:51 Eastern time this morning, A Family Forever had edged past the Ann Rice book to hit the Number 3 position on Technorati's Popular Books list--right behind The DaVinci Code and Harry Potter. There's no way my little book is going to get more internet buzz than those two, so this is as high as it'll climb up the list. But I'm very pleased and deeply grateful to the Christian Fiction Blog Tour people making this happen.
U P D A T E
At 2:32 p.m., my book shoved past Harry Potter and slid into the Number Two position--still behind The DaVinci Code. But I think all of the bloggers on the Tour have checked in now, so I'm not expecting any more links today. By tomorrow, my book will have dropped way down the list.
If anybody wants to have a bit of fun and help me stomp all over Mr. Brown's book, toss up a blog post today and include this link:

As things stand now, five or six posts should move me into the number one spot.
Yes, this is gaming the system. But I'm feeling ornery this afternoon.
Thanks to the following CFBT members who are blogging about my book today:
Wren Miller has a review up at Wren reviews...
Tina Kulesa enjoyed the book and has posted a review.
Valerie at In My Little World liked the book, also.
Christopher Well has posted the third and final part of his interview with me.
This post by Kathleen Popa at Reading, Writing, and... What Else is There? titled, "Brenda Coulter, Romance Novelist - An Unlikely Story" totally charmed me. Even though Katy included a photo of me on a Very Bad Hair Day.
I think this is the last one today, but if I've missed anybody, please let me know: Marci has put up a link at Writer-lee.
And this one's not part of the Christian Fiction Blog Tour, but I just wanted to thank Gina Holmes at Novel Journey for posting a long interview with me. The questions were some of the best I've seen, and I told Gina some things I haven't mentioned elsewhere in blogland.
