So it was quite a thrill to wake up and find the email confirmation that “The Night Swimmers” had jumped its way through the Amazon approval hoops. The bigger thrill though was seeing that even before I knew it was up for sale…someone in Australia had already figured that out!

My very first sale. Ever.

I have always wanted to visit Australia. And now I have one more reason to! I need to search out that first buyer and bring them a signed copy of the paperback! And then pester them with questions on what they thought about it. JK!! The anonymity of Amazon means I shall never know who they are…but they have my thanks!

(I’ve decided that the buyer is most likely a grizzled ranch hand in some teensy place smack dab in the middle of the country that no one has ever heard of. And he likes it that way).
