    Well friends, a fine online/print publication bought a story from me.
    It will be published in the June edition and I think it will be carried to all their mags and websites so go there and read it! 
    Of course, some of you willl have read "The Never Ending Beltsander" that I put on here some while back but it will be the first time in print... and they PAID me for it! HAHAhahahahahaaaaa.... YES!

    I haven't checked with Lucky or his Admins about posting their web address but I think it is a rockin' mag! Started by a rider and his wife, they are starting to get ads and sponsers, so here it is:

    I was wondering about that EW; you having been published. It's long overdue in my opinion. Congrats.

    Peace

    Thanx for all the kind, encouraging words. This is my second story to be sold, the first was 'Desert Crawler' in Biker magazine (a Paisano Publication that brings us Easyriders). December 2011... and then they merged with Easyriders and they no longer print biker fiction... dammit!
    Finding a venue to sell biker fiction, esp 1%, is a daunting task. Any suggestions would be welcomed! I am working on my 'Writing Style' to be a little more broadly appealing to the 'Market'... We shall see how it PANS out... get it? Pans? ohnevermind...

    Imagine that...

    Altho, I really didn't have to, for too long. YOU, are such an engaging story-teller, this was by no stretch of
    the imagination, out of the realm of possibility. Kudos, BROTHER. You're doin', what some of us
    don't have the kahones to even try...

    Way to GO EDGEWALKER. On the edge, and WALKIN' it OUT!!!

    Yup! I always knew, you had it. Now...so do they. Huh?
