Icing on the Cake

I got the icing on the cake and I didn't do a darn thing. Well at least I didn't do anything worthy of icing. I received notification in the mail that McGraw-Hill is requesting an extension of rights to a story of mine that they used in a reader ten years ago. They want to renew the rights for another ten years. That's money in my pocket without the thrill of writing anything new.

Good grief! I just be singing from the rooftops not wallowing in the fact that my work wasn't newly created or inspired from an idea that left me sleepless for nights on end. Right now for me icing on the cake is just a carbohydrate overload...go figure!

Deep breath. Deep breath. Okay. I really am happy that my story was good enough to be published over and over again. I'll start counting my blessings right now!

How cool is that?
It must have been a TERRIFIC book!
That kind of iceing is the perfect kind.

So tell us where and when it will be out again.

Of course, we are not surprised, we see your skill in the blog all the time.

Congratulations! It's a wonderful thing to have your work, new or old, out there for the world to enjoy. You reminded me of Charlie Brown with the "good grief" exclamation. :-)

Sometimes I feel like Charlie Brown!!! The story is a non-fiction called FIREFIGHTERS. It's in the middle of a first grade reader right betweeen two famous authors. One is Margaret Miller and I can't remember the other one right now!
