Cool author crap

I just signed an agreement with a Canadian textbook publisher to use one of my EveryDay Fiction short stories in electronic format as part of a bundle of media material used to backup and expand the printed text.

$100 payment, which astonishes me.

The story? The Last Station.

We Canadians can spot talent a mile away :)

Congrats, OG :thumbsup:

Oh, and you are officially a published author with that paycheck. Talk to your tax accountant about all the wunnerful deductions you can make.

Yeah Old Guy! You will probably be placed in a new tax bracket where you will no longer have to pay income tax, just like GE. OG ... GE, what's the dif? ;)

Doug, in the US you can deduct business expenses regardless of whether you're making any money or not. I've deducted computer-related and publishing expenses for years. My books, especially in electronic versions, sell at a slow but fairly steady rate on Amazon and B&N. It's not a living, but it isn't nothing. :)
