Published in a real book

I am pleased to announce that I have actually been published in a book!  So, to date, everything I’ve ever submitted has either been published or I’m still waiting to hear.   It’s fun to have my articles printed weekly in newspapers, but having a book with my name and bio in it is an entirely different feeling.  I am a little disappointed that they took a lot of the “punch” out of the story, and it is somewhat poorly edited.  But hey!  It’s a BOOK!   And I got a CHECK!  Here is the link if you are interested: Bedpan Banter

Now, if I could only manage to get my own book written and sent to a publisher or two!

  1. Good for you! That’s wonderful news! And you even got a check! Pretty impressive!

    Can you take your honeycomb columns and make them into a book?

  2. That would be the logical thing.  I have nearly 7 years worth of weekly columns, so a book and its sequel!  However, threading them together is proving to be a problem.   Selling a book made up of my newspaper article would be much easier if my name was Bombeck or Barry! 

I'd love to hear from you!
