Katie Harper says:
I didn't expect it to feel quite as amazing as this! People are buying my book. Who are you? Are you all sassy young women? Do any of you know me in real life?

Mum? Is it you?

Thanks to everyone who is supporting IT HAD TO BE YOU I hope you can imagine how humbling and yet magnificent it feels.

Hi Katie, good luck with the book. Nice cover - did you design it?

Goodness, why in the world would this be voted down? You are right, Katie, it is a wonderful feeling. But honestly, if you are to get any peace of mind you will have to stop wondering "who is buying it?" and simply be happy that it is finding homes in readers' Kindles.

And be prepared (like Lexi) to have another one for them to add to their collections when they find they very much like your first one!

Good luck!

You are quite right. It just amazes one if total strangers buy your book, even more amazing when they leave feedback or contact you. So be prepared ;-)

And furtheron good luck with your book. Enjoy the ride.

Excuse me, where is the exit?

Yes, it's great notching up another sale.

Unfortunately, all my prospective purchasers appear to be on holiday today. :(

Katie, congratulations and here's to many many more.

The title taps into something very deep inside the psyche of anyone my age (late 30s) who spent most of the 90s wearing out their video of When Harry Met Sally and listening to the Harry Connick soundtrack

The Company of Fellows

Ah, Meg Ryan before she went all botox. Don't know what she was thinking. And good to know I'm not the only one who loves the Harry Connick soundtrack, although I'm a lot older than late 30s.

Oh yes - Harry Connick was everywhere for a time. I remember being rather dumbfounded when he turned up as psycho number one in Copycat (a great film once you get over that!)

p.s. the "Mum? Is it you?" bit just had me almost choke on my coffee (never try and swallow and laugh at the same time).

"never try and swallow and laugh at the same time"
That's the punchline to *so* many jokes, but I don't think there's a single one that'd get through the filters
