I got a very pleasant surprise over the weekend. Between yardwork, running errands on the weekend, celebrating the 100th anniversary of my son's Boy Scout Troop and other sundry activities I received a parcel in the mail.
Kinda looked like an Amazon book order, but I didn't order anything. When I saw the postmark of Australia, my heart started pounding. Ticonderoga Publications is located there! I tore open the box in a frenzy of cardboard scraps and gazed upon the pure unadulterated beauty of two (2) contributor copies of "Damnation & Dames" featuring my first published work!
