As every writer knows, the public doesn’t consider you a “real writer” until you publish a book. It doesn’t matter if you’ve published articles or won awards, and when you say “No” they quickly change the subject.
dear friends, you can pity me no longer, because today I signed a contract with Wordcraft Publishing to publish a compilation of my columns and essays.
Ta da! Real writer!
Making the deal even sweeter, a couple of Bandit’s pieces will also be included. Really, he’s probably going to be the bigger celebrity out of all of this. But I can live with that.
The plan is to have the book out in time for the Christmas season, so I need to buckle down and get to work. I need to first select as many of my favorite columns as I can find, and then pen a few new pieces.
Stay tuned for more news!
