A few months ago, I announced that I was taking February 29th off from work. Leap Day! I figure if the universe is going to gift me with a freebie day, I should take advantage of it, right? I planned to spend the day doing something I’d never done before. Like maybe rock climbing, playing chess or learning how to raise alpacas.
Of course, real life was not privy to the fact it was supposed to bend to my own personal needs, so it turned out that I couldn’t take the day off as I needed to travel for work. I wasn’t that disappointed, figuring that I could still build in an extra special activity somewhere during the day to make Leap Day memorable.
In the end, though, it turned out that the universe was watching out for me after all.
A little before noon time on February 29th, 2012 I got word that Write for the Fight: A Collection of Seasonal Essays was uploaded to Barnes and Noble and was available for purchase and reading with the Nook.
That kind of makes me a published writer.
I think I need to sit down.
As a reminder, I’ve previously shared the details about this project on my blog here:
The key things to remember are:
- all writer royalties are being donated to breast cancer charities;
- the book is available for download on your Nook right now at Barnes and Noble: Write for the Fight . After 30 days, the book will be available at most online booksellers
