Congrats! Make sure the book comes with a built in bottle opener so I can drink while reading. Plus it will help to bridge the redneck demographic.

I finally found my way back here after creating an account and giving up a few months ago. This makes me want to stick it out this time around. Congratulations on your success!

This is so cool! I hope you don't mind me adding a bit of testimony myself. I actually came to writing forums because I had some sliver of hope that, someday, I might be able to write something that wasn't arcane technical documentation on LDP-11 virtualization programming.

I can't say for sure, but I think I'm getting better. And the people on here are really awesome, too. :D

I myself am recently returned, having left waaaaaaayyyy back during the "event" about 3ish years ago. I laugh because I remember someone saying in a post in the lounge something to the tune of, "Man, we used be Vegas! Now we're the outskirts of Reno."

I came back because somewhere else I play is going through a rough metamorphosis and it may come out ok, it may not. I came back here after chatting with Shaddowalker who had great things to say about a new and revamped writingforums.com.

She was right! The discussion here is where it should be, on writing. I see an active critique area. I see members posting work. I see... writing!

How avant guard. ;)

In the current fiction writing climate, any sale is a good sale. Congratulations, dale.

Don't put yourself down so much, there are a lot worse things you could do for a penny!

Congrats have a double, on me, as long as you are paying.

for an update...the agent search is as frustrating and stupid as every other aspect of the writing racket. my ex-wife was right
so far. she told me when i started the book that i would have a hard time getting anyone in the NYC industry to even read it because of the
theme. the one personalized rejection i've had from new york so far said she had "personal reservations" about "the project". said it was
very interesting and well written....but due to "personal reservations" she wouldn't be a good fit. i thought..."jeez, girl....you sound like every
woman i've ever slept with." ha ha

thanks. usually the way it's worked in the past like on short stories is i get a couple 2 or 3 rejections, then the 4th or 5th
one says yeah...i'm interested. i'm hoping that will be the case on the agent queries. i know i could send this to a small publisher
myself and it would get accepted...but they want me to actually promote and market my work myself. i'm too lazy for that
crap and really don't get along well with others. that's why i'd really like an agent to handle that for me.
