First ever royalty check!

It arrived today.

Writing makes me happy, as does feedback from readers. But there's nothing quite like being paid (and paid well) for something you've written. :)

Thank you to everyone supporting me in this journey, by liking what I've written or helping me promote my first book!

Doesn't that taste sweet?

Marian said...

Yes. And it gives me added motivation to apply myself to the sequel. :)

Loren Chase said...

Congratulations! A moment worth celebrating! ;)

L'Aussie said...

Congratulations, celebrate then get onto that sequel!

JH - I tried to come up with a few rap lyrics about writing. I failed.

Soccer Mom - All my writing money will go to having a home of my own some day. :)

Or at least buying furniture, if I don't earn enough for the down payment.

Loren - Thanks! I just need to think about it to get a goofy smile on my face. :)

L'Aussie - Tell me about it. I intended to complete the sequel before the summer's end and still only have an outline.

Congrats Marian! That's gotta feel good.

Marian! I've been so out of the loop, I didn't realize you'd gotten published meanwhile. Congrats! And double congrats for the royalty check!!

Thanks, Nicole and Jewel! The book is available electronically now and will be out in paperback next year. It's exciting and scary, but mostly exciting.
