My First Advance! Woot!


Hello Fellow Writers!

Today is a momentous day in the Evers household. I got my very first advance for my writing, for the Berkley Heat Anthology Agony/Ecstasy. I'm so excited, I can't wait to go to the bank tomorrow with my check, LOL!

To celebrate, I'm buying myself an extravagant (well, extravagant to me at least) gift. Since I already have and love the Roomba, now I can get the Scooba. The Roomba is a robotic vacuum that vacuums for me. I have it roam around the first floor of my house every day. The Scooba mops, which means now I won't have to clean my floors manually at all! Tee hee :) If only I could find a robotic duster...

  1. Way to go. You HAVE arrived! (And just think...without an agent!)

  2. A scooba? A pragmatist at heart! I wonder if it's tax deductible since it will allow you more time to write? LOL

    Seriously, congrats. This will always one of your memorable days.

  3. Thanks Taryn! I'd much rather have an agent, though. Hopefully this year. I'm still waiting to hear back from a beta reader on the full length before I query agents...

  6. Awesome. I've been wanting the Roomba (or a sexy, shirtless Greek) to help out around the house. :):)

  7. I love the Roomba we have now (the Pet Series one). I run it every day. The fact that we don't have any rugs definitely helps it run well for us. Some people say it doesn't work - I think it depends on your floors and rug situation.

    As for the sexy, shirtless Greek, he can do the dusting, LOL

  8. Shana, You do love your gadgets. Congrats on the advance. I spent my first one on many more things than the amount of the check.
