Ha ha! That brought a laugh. I guess I never really thought of it as a "success" but you may just be right! Thanks for clearing the smoke.

Well done, Joe. That's a popular story, and with good reason :)

Thanks, you two. A publisher said I should work on a longer version of the story
and send it to them. So hopefully that will also be published later this year.

Thanks, Skip.

Just had my first review as well. So glad it went well. And it's for a story I posted here in MWC quite a while back.
The reviewer was no other than DF Lewis himself. Feel free to take a look.  :)

Fantastic Joe - don't forget to print it out for you CV.  Maybe two copies, one to frame.  ;D

Thanks everyone. I was really stressing this review. Knew it was coming since Monday. Phew.
Apparently there's more coming. The best thing is I know I write better now than I did when
I wrote that story.  :)

That feeling is so great isn't it Joe - I mean when YOU can see the improvement in your own work.

CONUNDRUM is now in print. It only took me 25 or so years to write it.

Nothing like whirlwind turnarounds is there?  ;D

The key is it is in print. Congratz.

What really feels good is that it totally blows my other 7 published novels out of the water. THIS is what I was supposed to write.
