We've all heard the saying 'The check is in the mail."
Well, I got my check in the mail for my short story that is going to be in the book Christmas Traditions.
It's only $75, but it's the first compensation for my writing. So, I guess that makes it official, I'm an author!
Come September, I can hold the book in my hand! Then, it will seem very real.
Now, if I can just get one of my picture books or MG stories published.
