Well, not me personally, but my writing.
The due-to-hit-the-newsstands-in-two-weeks November issue of Discover includes a piece I wrote. I was given a preview of the cover of that upcoming issue, and my piece is touted there as a come-on to potential readers. Need I tell you that I am thrilled? If so, I just did.
This marvelous news comes on the heels of selling a piece to the Boston Herald yesterday (publication some time next week, tentatively.) Combined with having another piece scheduled for Discover in December, and two pieces either scheduled or currently in Funny Times (including the October issue, now on sale), I am having freelance mini-orgasms.
I mention these because so many of you wondered, in comments, who had been silly enough to buy my scribblings (well, OK, you were polite and didn't put it that way, but I know what some of you were thinking.). Now you know. If you wish to reward the editors and publishers for making such bad decisions, you could go to the following websites and subscribe to the publications in question.
Funny Times (If you go there and scroll down just a bit, you'll see me mentioned by name, the fools.)
The Boston Herald
Being the self-absorbed sort of idiot I am, you can rest assured I'll be back to tell you about each piece in detail as the actual print editions reach my sweaty hands. In the meantime, if you'd say a prayer for the folks who bought them from me, I'd appreciate it. It's obvious they need some help. In return, I'll say a prayer for you, because without your faithful reading and encouragement, I never would have had the balls to send stuff out to any editors in the first place.
Soon, with more better stuff.
