First of all, let me thank everyone who is coming to this site. I just got hooked up with Google Analytics and was quite pleasantly surprised to see the traffic. Either my mom is coming A LOT, or a large number of you are stopping by. Thanks so much!
The somewhat alarming looking gentlemen in this photo is not, in fact, a convict piloting a new, smaller number thingy to hold up during mug shuts. No, my friends, that is me. And it isn't a mug shot number thingy. It's a check.
For my book!!!!
Would it be unseemly to exult for a few paragraphs? I'm really excited about this. It is the first check I have ever received for writing and I'm pretty darn excited about it (there really is a check there, I just blurred it all out to protect my first customer's bank account. Identity theft tends to make people mad enough to post negative book reviews on their blogs, stop being nice to one's child in Sunbeam class, and possibly not buy any more books. So I'm trying to be careful).
I was so excited I thought about just giving the book away to this person for free. But the logic of that eventually causes problems. She would get it for free, which means that the next person would technically be the first paying customer. That would cause me to be excited again, give their book away for free, and so on. You see how this quickly becomes problematic.
So, I'll just content myself by saying, thanks, Alex!!!! We'll bring you some cookies or something.
