Oh my gosh! I’ve just received my first royalties ever from Amazon. I’m even happier than when they sent me an e-mail with my earnings, a week ago – I didn’t squealed then, but I squealed now.

This is it. This seals the deal, guys. From now on, you can call me Mr. Writer.

Okay, okay. I know that I don’t have to earn money to be an author, but being able to write and pay for things with the money I take home doing it is wonderful. It means I did the right thing when I jumped ship from my regular old job and can stop thinking about it. Now, I can start paying for things like meals, power and water with my words!

Well, not yet. I’ve received royalties from March and Stripped Expectations was published mid-month. BUT! It doesn’t matter. It’s my first payment as an author. More will come. Hopefully.

I can’t stress this enough. Thank you all for helping me fulfill this dream. You guys are wonderful.
