Paypal now contains the (token) payment for my story 'Olverston Grange'. It's not a fortune, barely a pitence actually, but its value is not monetary - it's psychological.
I have had quite a few stories published and had previously signed a paying deal (but that was royalties). This sale represents a change in my confidence levels. To believe in myself to try to sell a story was a major step.
Just goes to show if you believe in yourself good things can happen.
Don't forget - Induction is still available and if you don't have an eBook reader you can get the software for you computer and smartphone - free of charge - from those lovely people at Amazon.
