Just in time for St. Patrick's Day

The Irish anthology I've blogged about containing one of my stories has been released. Should be receiving my two free copies any day now. I'm proud of this one for a couple of reasons.

It's my first non-fiction sale, recounting an incident that happened on my (thus far) lone visit to Ireland. It's also the most I've been paid for any short that I've written.

In fact, at $50.00 for 396 words, it comes out to twelve-cents a word! Wonder if that'll count as a "pro sale" toward HWA and other memberships.


I also suspect its availability in specialty gift shops and other places that sell such tchotchkes will make it the biggest seller of anything I've been included in yet.

My story recounts an incident that occurred while hitchhiking around Ireland during my freshman year in college, when I quite literally bumped into long lost relatives.

At any rate, you can check it out here here on Amazon.

12 cents a word... *Faints*.

I think I've found my new calling, Cate. Greeting cards and inspirational books!

And thanks . . .
