HA HA I was doing a google search to see the lowest price point to watch my son's ridiculous soap opera work.
Total aside there.
but no royalties there...
I just think that absolutely hilarious; as well as a good sign he has some bonafide fans.
Remindes me my oldest and I were talking about the Harlequin book challenge- see who could write one and land it published first! HA HA
One of the residents at the old folks home told me her favorite author is JD Robb as she loves mysterys. I laughed when I looked up the author to find it is Nora Roberts.Now that is one prolific writer. Can't say I have read even one of her books or even one harlequin romance. I had one that was translated into Arabic (or written in Arabic) that years ago the Somolian teen girls had with them when they were staying with us after the influx of refugees and my housemates and I housed them up in Buffalo. They left the book with us as they left. I saved it for years just to remind me of the wonderful time we had then. It was seriously so fun to get to know the young ladies and spend time with them those weeks they lived with us. They wanted to do something to thank us so one day they braided all our hair. I will never forget that. The care they took and the gratitude and just such gentle sweet souls these girls were. I has just started a new job, but I didn't worry in the least what anyone thought as I wore those braids proudly. It was just a little uncomfortable when going into work after they braided my hair as I was in a brand new job and knew it was a bit unusual. The discomfort dissappated quickly! I am happy we had a work party as our awesome boss took the whole lot of us out to lunch and someone snapped a photo. We were the first hired staff of the very first group home dedicated to autistic individual. The home was for young folks age 18 over with autism to live in community with their peers. I am to this day still friends with our boss ( who is an amazing woman) and some of the folks I met in that first job landed fresh out of college. (Actually 2nd.I had a freelance writing job I landed so was writing a regular article for a Health Magazine; landed first but I continued to do that for a while until the editor quit over sexual harassment and her writing staff all resigned in solidarity with her.)
HA HA just realized that was the beginning of my work history of jobs ending when stand up for something I believe in.
Somehow that makes me feel better acually. Just the absolute consistency of that.
