I'm Literate!

After years and years of trying, I'm finally published.  I had to publish it myself, but dang it, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Now there is at least one hard-copy of my stories in existence that I can leave to posterity.  I should go bury it in the backyard in a Ziploc bag for when the Robot Holocaust comes rolling into town.

I'd like to thank my family, the academy, Lulu, and the hundreds of editors who have xeroxed millions of rejection letters just for me.  You can get a free copy here.

  3. @Matt - Thank you very much!

    @Whisk - Oh wow - really? Why do I get the sudden desire to vacuum all the floors and bleach all the walls? I think that means I need to go and quickly fix some spelling issues! Thanks!

    @Tim - Thanks Tim. Really, just getting getting a hard copy was all the success I was looking for - but heck, a sale tain't bad neither. :)

  6. @Whisk - Oops. Too late. I fixed the most egregious stuff. :)

    Lulu send me a cupon code to hand out for 15% off.

    Info is here:

    So there you go - you can save some cents. :)

  7. @migellito - Thanks very much. If you haven't started it, I did do some clean-up with the help of a friend, so the new version may be a bit easier to read now. You can download the fresher version if you wish.

  8. I missed the coupon but that's okay. Tim ordered it for me the other night, and I'll have it soon. Keep writing and I'll let you know when it gets here.
