Last week, I opened my mailbox to the delight of my six-month royalty check. I wrote a book a few years ago called Silver Waters
. There is nothing quite like writing a book. There is so much excitement and hope that goes into it, and so much disappointment that follows.
I never thought that Silver Waters would be a best seller, but I always hoped it would. I always thought that it could be a best seller. But all authors feel that way about there books. When I opened the envelope and saw my check, I knew it was all over. $0.
In fairness, the book has been on the market for nearly two years, so I can't be upset about it finally running out of time. But I just wished that I could have had more than 40 people read the damn thing.
So, in honor of all the forgotten and broke authors out there, I offer you cheers. You may have made no money, but what the hell, at least it was fun while it lasted.
