Jamie McGuire Novel To Be Sold At Wal-Mart

I'm looking for the answers.
Panzer was just tootling around in the Catosphere today, when he heard a bunch of cheering and shouting and general merriment. Following all the noise got him to indie author Jamie McGuire's blog.

According to a post there, Ms. McGuire's indie paperback novel, Beautiful Redemption, will be sold on the shelves of Wal-Mart. This is a first for an indie published book. Unfortunately, the post doesn't explain how she was able to get Wal-Mart to handle the book. Also, there are no details on how Createspace was involved in the agreement. It does, however, seem to be a first step in the door at brick and mortar stores for indie authors.

Panzer says, "I don't want to get anybody's hopes down, but she is a New York Times Bestselling Author. I don't think Wal-Mart will sell paperbacks by you or me anytime soon."
