AMY Huberman's latest book soared up the bestseller list just three days after hitting the shelves last week.
Unbeknownst to her as she first attended the launch of 'I Wished for You' at a reception in Dublin last night, her second work of women's fiction is ranked number five on this week's Irish bestseller's list for original fiction after it went on sale on November 1.
Publisher Penguin Ireland decided to keep the news under wraps until the launch was under way, according to her publicist Cliona Lewis.
But even before the champagne started to flow at the new Damson Diner on Dublin's South William Street, the 33-year-old actress and author said she was delighted with her tale of a put-upon stylist who caters to spoilt rich women with no taste or style.
"So far so good. It's kind of scary when it's out there," she said.
But she added she is much more relaxed about the book's reception following the success of her debut novel 'Hello Heartbreak' which spent three weeks in the number one spot in the Irish bestseller list in 2009.
"You have to let that go about worrying if people are going to like it," she said. "But I hope it does well."
Dressed in a blue shift dress, she posed for the cameras alongside her rugby star husband, Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll, who hobbled into the new eatery on a walking cast after sustaining a serious ankle injury at a match with Cardiff last month.
