OP, congrats on the published novel AND also congrats on the three indie-published novels. I have a toe in the creative space as well, and I know how fulfilling getting your stuff "out there" can be.

Frame that bad boy up somewhere! Then for the rest of your life you have an automatic conversation starter of:

Guest: Ah, what pray tell is that?

You: Oh, it's just one of my poems that was published in this esteemed magazine.

Guest: You are so sophisticated and impressive.

You: Yes, yes I am.

Lol! Thatís priceless! Well, thank you, fellow artist. Actually, itíll be a published poem ó sure wish it was one of my novels but, hey, Iím still breathing.

Gotta remember that: ďYes, yes I am.Ē 😂
