An Indecent Disclosure

I bet you are thinking this is something sexy, an illicit affair with a married man or something like that. A millionaire in a yacht taking me to South America where I can visit the Andes Mountains or Brazil. No such luck. (Not that I approve of or recommend illicit affairs with men, married or otherwise. Still, it would be “exciting” and at least in books or other people’s lives could be qualify as interesting. So long as a person is not herself involved in the “scandal” with the angry relatives lined up to commit murder, the adventure of dubious morality is nothing if not interesting.) So what is it? Well–my book. Yes. They say that these days, how much money a person makes is as sensitive as lingerie used to be. I guess it shows where your priorities are.

My judgment about disclosing what I now have in royalties may seem perverse–both because it is socially unacceptable and because, anyway, it is not much money. Yet I am doomed to pronounce my worth: $62.11, the royalties being for a 200 copies of The Bible According to Eve: Women of the Torah. Yes, I am still floating below the poverty line. Yet if even 200 people have bought my book, there is a chance I shall end up on the Best Sellers, yet. I mean that. If my first publisher, Austin Macauley, and I can get together we could really sell a few copies (I hope) at book signings and other such events. More, I have 3 sequels also at with plus (upcoming) the novel Faust in Love. Who knows, perhaps the fact that I have more books in The Bible According to Eve line plus the novel will help buoy the first book’s sale.

Anyway, until the millionaire with the yacht shows up for our trip to South America (should I mention this fantasy as a woman who is supposed to be religious?), I will leave the reader with the record stating I have 200 books sold and hopeful request that somebody reading this post will forget to judge the silliness of this post and buy a copy of my book on or at Barnes&–or try to order it at Barnes & Noble or even (drumroll) Walmart. Of course, it is only the first one which you can get at Walmart. Plus, Faust in Love has not come out yet, as of June 3, 2022.
