I am now $99 richer than I would have been. Writer’s Digest, God bless them, offered a contest for the best e-book, a $5,000 prize. All my books came out as e-books, too, and I avidly filled out the entry blank. My best chance was with The Last Torpedo, but that had a co-author, which might not be permitted.
Anyway, I got my entry blank filled out, and then I came to the entry fee. Ninety-nine dollars! Well, they have to get the prize money somewhere. So I still have that $99 and my wife will love it. Life turns out so well, sometimes.
