Tomorrow's the big day!



Tomorrow's a huge deal for me.

Huge.

Wait, that's not big enough.

HUGE!

Ok, that's better.

Tomorrow is Launch Day for Best of Friday Flash 2, or BOFF2 as it is somewhat lewdly referred to. *wink, nudge*

It's big because it's the first time any of my fiction work has been published in a real honest-to-god book. 

This shouldn't be such an enormous deal for me, having had about three bazillion newspaper articles published in my long-in-the-tooth lifetime, but they were WORK and this is FUN and it's DIFFERENT. Man, it is so different.

Please forgive me as I prattle on about the wonderfulness of this auspicious occasion and try to sell a few books. I know, it's annoying. But damn it, this is just as big as losing my virginity. 

And much more politically correct to brag about.

P.S. Best wishes to everyone currently facing Hurricane Sandy's wrath. Stay dry. Safe safe. OK?

  4. I'm in there too, so I'm sharing the giddy! That old Dr. Hook song keeps running through my head: "Gonna buy five copies for my mother, hey!"

  6. A huge congrats to you! And to me! To all of us! I very much look forward to reading everyone's stories again, this time in an honest-to-goodness book. Paper pages and all.

    HOPE to join in the joy, but I'm kinda betting we won't have electric by then. Peace...

    1. I'm hoping you have electricity, too! At any rate, if the storm does interfere with our joyous celebrating, we can always celebrate some more when everything in your neck of the woods returns to "normal!"

      Congrats Linda, and please be careful down there.
