I will be paid a whopping $10.00 or .003 cents a word.

My co-writer Ken Pick was right. The depression-era pulp writers made more than this.

Time to start cranking out the bodice rippers?

Here's an idea!

Just like Twilight, except CHRISTIAN (TM)! Uber-Uber HAWT Vampires (sparkle sparkle) handing out Four Spiritual Laws tracts for the Altar Call Ending!)
