I Am Now Truly A Professional Author


Though my first professional sale was to the anthology Infinite Space, Infinite God, my sale to Beyond Centauri magazine is the first one where I actually got the paycheck! (Royalties are not yet due from the anthology.)



Tremble before my majestic forehead! (Click on the picture for a larger view)

My finger on my left hand sadly covers up my name on the cover.

By the bye, the check is only for $5 so I'll try not to spend it all in one place.

Congratulations!!! Is there anything better than seeing your work in print (as an author, I mean- I know there are better things. Grin.)

Bows down, on bended knee...
Just remember, when you're famous and rolling in $5 cheques, that you once socialised with us little people.

I am writing a piece atm that mentions product placement in books. It's what we all fear, you know, now you're pro... will you sell out?

How long before your anthropomorphic characters start eating Snickers bars... and drinking Pepsi, ever so discreetly?
