I’m a (Soon To Be) Published Author

I just got word from the 100 Stories for Haiti folks; “The Path of the Faerie King” has made the cut!

I am, needless to say, very excited. This will be my first published story and is a wonderful balm for all the rejections I have been receiving. This is a big “first” and I am happy and proud that my first published story is being used for a Haiti fundraiser.

Yup, now I can go around and tell folks I am a “published author.” OK, OK, I won’t let it go to my head—this is just the first step in many—but for now I am going to enjoy the moment. Next up, getting paid for a story.

I’ll post back here again when I hear more and when the books go on sale and them funds can start getting raised.

Sincerely,
Robert J. McCarter
(Soon To Be) Published Author 😉
