After droning on through so many lengthy tomes, I can finally offer a post under 500 words! When I told my father-in-law that Soul Lost is about 250 pages on Kindle and over 300 in print, he said, “Wow! That’s a lot.” Don’t know why he is surprised: he knows that once I start talking it is hard to shut me up.
Nonetheless, I feel I have to mark the payment of my first royalties from Amazon. Royalties! Like a real writer! Ok, ok, so we aren’t going to be able to retire on it, but it is a start, isn’t it?
More significantly, it means I am truly a professional writer–someone who gets paid for writing. That is the realization of a lifelong dream, and hopefully the first step to success in the only “career” I ever wanted for myself. Keep your fingers crossed for me, that I will find my audience and sell enough books to write full-time. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has purchased it so far!
