I had a surprise in my mailbox yesterday: my first royalty payment from Amazon. The grand total for my account through August 26 came to $10.11. Not, you know, whopping sales–but my first goal was to be able to get myself into a state of celebratory temulency off the proceeds. I don’t know about where y’all live, but $10.11 is plenty for me to buy a six-pack of the snooty craft beers I prefer, or a fifth of Crown and a Coke mixer, or even enough drinks at a bar if I pick the right one.
So, cheers, y’all. I’m a paid fucking professional now!
