Are you homeward bound? You totally rock.
Congratulations! What a feat! I hope you are relaxing with a nice drink somewhere today.I can only imagine what you'll think of to top this in the future...
Well Done!! Quite an accomplishment. You derserve a break, but I doubt you are going to give yourself one.
And you Roll.
Congrats Joe,I have this saying with my kids... I say to them, YOU ROCK, and they say back to me, YOU RULE. then we switch it around the other way.It is a shame you did not make it out to california, but I have hope for next year.
Dude, that bottle of rum I gave you a couple of days ago? It's time to drink it...Cheers, mon...
Congrats! What a feat! When's the next 500? Just kidding! Enjoy it.
wow. congratulations, joe. you're like the david blaine of writers. i've heard a gurney and IV will be waiting for you when you get home.
Yes, you do.
Congratulations, dude! Can't wait to buy you a sugar-dipped victory cigar.
Way to go, Joe! Here's hoping you make it north of the border next time.
Congratulations! You did it.
Congrats! You truly are THE JAMES BROWN OF THE NOVEL WORLD!Tell me: Do you feel good?
You are beyond inspiring! Does this mean no trip to CA for now?
Way to go, man. You do rock!
Go Joe! Congratulations!And for the love of God, take it easy on Mariah now...:-)Barry
Way to go, Joe!"We're not worthy!" (bows to ground in best attempt at a Wayne & Garth impersanation)Have a safe trip home.
I am impressed. Congratulations!
I never had any doubt.Champagne is on me at B'con. Signed,The Loser
Well done Joe K -I read your story in Thriller last night and was impressed.Take a long hot soak in the tub and enjoy your familyAliwww.shotsmag.co.uk
Congratulations, Joe! That is such a great achievement. (Which, of course, sucks for the rest of us. From now on, any author's plans that includes fewer than 500 stores will be laughed off as "quaint.")
And then some. Way to go, Joe!
I can hear the theme song from Rocky playing....
Way to go, Joe!!
Congrats, Joe. You are a mad man!
Wonderful!! Just wonderful!! What an accomplishment! I am sure that you will reap the rewards of your effort for many years to come. Terrie Moran
Never doubted you for a moment. Congrats! So will you shoot for 1000 for Dirty Martini?
Congratulations, Joe. Go home to your wife and kids.
You do indeed! So does the book! And thanks for the stop in Champaign. Scott is still talking about it ;o)
Congrats my friend!!!! You are insane!!
You deserve a stadium's worth round of applause, Joe. And a vat of port.Major congrats for hitting that goal!!!
You are the rock of inspiration!I've been stopping in every few days to check up on your trip and I have to say you are AMAZING!!! GO JOE GO!!!
Just got my new Writer’s Digest in, with an article on book tours. Please. This is what a book tour is all about: 500 stores, 10,000 miles and the perseverance of one man. Joe, you are a book tour god. PS. If you can swing by Hawaii next year, I’ll drive you around.Nadja
What? No North Dakota? What a quitter.Seriously though, congrats, go home and rest.
Thanks to all for the tremendous amount of support you've shown, both in words and in deeds. I couldn't have hit 500 all by myself. You guys are awesome.I'm officially home, and officially very tired. After a few days off, I'll recap the tour so far.I say "so far" because I'll hit another 100 stores in the Midwest in September.It ain't over till it's over.
Way to go, Joe!
Congrats! That's amazing and i'm sure you don't want to see the inside of your car for a LONG time!
"I rock?"Yes, you do.
