Vindicated

This morning my dream was realized. Well, almost anyway. I was floating in that not awake-not asleep haze that I’m usually in at a quarter to five. Then my phone dinged. Bleary-eyed, I picked it up and hit the button to check my email. And there it was… a reply about my submission to Pink Petal Books.

The moment wasn’t one of those clearly etched in your mind moments. I was still kinda partly asleep after all. However, I did draw a breath reminding myself that there was every possibility that Shifting Winds would be rejected. It happens. It’s happened to me with Silver Lining. I opened the email and there it was… my first contract offer.

Now, you all know that I am not a fan of the squee. I didn’t squee. I mean, who squees when they are naked in bed after all? Not me, I can tell you. I got up and put on my Blogography Zombie shirt and discovered that the TV was on. So I go down the hall and tell Motley, who has company at 5 am, that I got my first contract. She and Aaron half assed squee for me. I forgive them for it though. This is a defining moment in my life after all.

The funny thing is, I don’t feel like jumping up and down and throwing confetti. I just feel… vindicated. THIS is what I am meant to do. THIS is what I am meant to be. I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO, LIFE!

Okay, now maybe my eyes are just a tad damp. After all, this is my friend Darrie in Scotland’s birthday. (I sent him a bottle of Vampire Wine. Thank you DanielPhillip for telling me about it.) Tomorrow is my birthday. I don’t think I’ve ever received a present like this one…

So here I sit in my Dave-toon shirt feeling… official. I’ve arrived. I can officially say that I am an Author. I write Throbbing Vampire Cock stories. In this case actually, it’s a Throbbing Dragon Cock and Pulsing Vampire Pussy story. But the moment I’ve worked so hard for… the moment I’ve waited for and dreamed about has arrived.

I miss Rott. He’s not here to share this with me, but YOU are. And I thank every single one of you from the bottom of my heart for believing in me. That is the best birthday present ever.

    Major.. major congrats…. Super great news. I’m very happy for you. It’s one of those moments in life that you really feel it was all worth it.

    I hope your success with this will spill over to other authors and to motivate them to get their writing done to join the ranks. πŸ˜‰ It helps if I would dedicate the time to write like you do. Seeing your success drives me even more.

    Again, congrats.
