Friday Fun Facts

"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air." ~W.T. Ellis

Fun Fact #1: We have our Christmas tree up! Of course, it still needs to be decorated (I hope this evening), but it's found a very nice place in our living room amid the other holiday decorations.

Fun Fact #2: I was pleasantly surprised by my royalty report from Samhain. Now, December is one of the biggest paying months, since there are print royalties from the summer along with both electronic and print royalties from a bunch of other distributors, but was nice to see that I can afford more than dinner and a movie this month :) Note: it definitely pays to keep publishing books. The more you have in circulation, the higher the royalties are. It seems that would go without saying, but it's worth mentioning.

Fun Fact #3: WOW-Women on Writing is featuring Literary Agents this month - how to get 'em, what they're looking for, and how they work. Check it out!

I was thoroughly pleased to have run into your blog. I myself am an aspiring writer, and I very much love it when I run across others with a passion for the written word. For that reason, I have decided to follow your blog. Us writers should stick together!
