Lost My Amateur Status

by Michael Langlois

Behold!  Bad Radio’s first royalty statement!

It’s a book milestone that every author honors with the solemn dignity that the occasion deserves.

For example, after bringing the mail inside, I proceeded to celebrate via interpretive dance.  As is proper.  It must have been too emotionally powerful for the wife, however, because she made me swear never to do it again.  Ever.

      Congrats to you, too, Mike. I assume the next step is to buy tophats and monocles, right? *looks at check* Oh, right.

    You’ve committed a classic newbie error: By blacking out your address how will you ever receive another royalty statement?!

    I’m glad your story continuity is better than your grasp of basic real life navigation skills.

      Friends: We knew him back when!
      Public: You mean before he was a huge jerk?
      Friends: No.
