Copies and Pay



Nothing much to post today other than that I got my contributor copies for Two-Gun Bob. This was a book published late last year about Robert E. Howard. (Remember my REHupa comment from yesterday.) I had an article in it called "Robert E. Howard: A Behavioral Perspective." I know that probably sounds all psychological/sciency, but like pretty much everything in the book the article is intended for a general audience and is written in a non-academic tone. It was published by Hippocampus Press.

And, hey, they also sent me money. Now the question becomes, do I buy more books? Do I buy more beer? Do I spring for a nice dinner out somewhere? Do I sit in the corner of my office surrounded by the books I already have, drinking the beer I've already bought, eating some tuna fish that is already in the pantry, and giggle madly to myself?

Now, that's a hard choice.

Being the frugal person I am, I'd opt for the latter (especially the giggling), write another book, THEN go out and buy more books. But that's just me.

Congratulations, Charles. :)

I am always in favor of giggling madly.

Chortling, snickering, and guffawing are good variations.

Sounds like reason to celebrate--go on out to dinner and have a good time!

Of course, me, I'm always looking for an excuse to celebrate and eat out because I'd rather not cook. :)

Since publishing is such a rarity for me, I'd've bought more copies of Two-Gun Bob to give away to my blogger friends. Hint-hint. Just kidding. Buy yourself a beer and have a drink on me.

I'm for the giggling, too. It just sound like more fun. Congratulations, Charles.

Charles Gramlich said...

Thanks, everyone. JR, I'm planning on doing that as soon as I hit the New York Times bestseller list.

I'd probably opt for nine or ten days of tequila-fueled mayhem.

Or, another personal favorite...

Cross country crime spree.

Congratulations on getting paid!

Congrats fella!
Here's my advice. Drink the beer, grill a few steaks, chow down, and then write, write, write....after taking a nap, of course.

Lucas Pederson said...

Oh and...comence with the giggling if you like..
