@farmerman,
Oh, sorry I didn't see this until now!

It's a sci-fi piece, where people in a not so free society subtly and then not so subtly lose more and more of their rights.

Thank you to everyone who believed in me.

I am being published. No joke, no lie.

I won a competition and received the contract in the mail about a half an hour ago. I am so giddy and crazy, I am running around screaming, crying, and laughing, pretty much all at the same time.

Thank you all.

@jespah,
Oh, Jes! I am so happy for you.

I figured you'd at least get fairly far in the competition. (I remember that duck thread of long ago, you've always been a sharp writer.)

RP is taking me out - Stockyard for the people who know the area.

I have homework (I'm taking a class). I need to get offline and do it before I get even nuttier. Thank you all.

@jespah,
Ok now when can we purchase this novel and I surely do hope a version will be in digit format that will download to a BN nook.

My wife is delight that I am no longer fulling the house up with books and bookshelves however I will annoy her if need be and buy another paper book in this case.

Please keep us all informed and congratulation.

@jespah,
Well, that settles it. My time in New York that I keep bringing up, since, while short, it stuck with me - was in Riverdale.

Have fun, you two.

@jespah,
Just caught that.

What is this mishugana, the both of you need to make me happy?

Pealing with joy, I can hardly stand it.





I'm exaggerating, but not much.

@jespah,
Thanks, jes. I didn't say anything. Wasn't sure if you wanted anyone to know.

I reiterate. I knew she would win.

She created an amazing work. A real world with real characters. Great detail. Big surprises.

Did you guys enjoy your celebration? I hope so. I didn't have an Oreo. I had an egg cream in your honor.
