For those of you lovelies out there who are planning on making a million bucks from your novel, here is about the sum of it. This is my first-ever royalty check for Miracle Girls. Remember my advance for the sale of the book was zero dollars and zero cents. And it costs a bundle to submit to first-novel prizes to try to extend the life of the book. So....I'm basically in the hole. Minus $15.90. Need I say more?
In case you are all "hearted" out with Valentine's Day and you live in or near Los Angeles, come to a reading @booksoup in West Hollywood the day after VD, on Sunday, February 15th, at 3 pm. It will not be at all about love, save for that which is divine--and just barely. Would love to see you there.
No chance of snow cancelling THIS reading. I'm going where the sun shines all the day long: West Hollywood, Book Soup. Excited to see all you surfer mice and bronzed rodents. Say hello if you happen to show up. So far, I've met a few LROD readers along the way. And that's been very nice.
