I am elated to announce that I have just sold my novel--Anything But Quiet on the Western Front--to Doubleday. The deal specifies publication by Christmas, and a $100,000 advance. I always knew one day my hard work would pay off, but this is beyond belief!
In an unrelated event, I ran my first ever 8-minute mile yesterday. At this rate, I should cut last year's triathlon finishing time in half for this year's August race.
All this, and the best good-hair day of my life.
Oh, and yeah, finally getting to show off the handsprings I mastered all those years ago, in preparation for just such a confluence of events.
Sometimes, I guess, the gods really do smile down on us.
And sometimes, it's April Fools Day.
