Got my check last week for my Year’s Best sale and cashed it yesterday. Yippeee!
Friends and relations, however, were rather horrified to learn that the going rate for a Year’s Best anthology sale is… about $100.
I could say that nobody writes for the money, but actually, I now write for a living. So, let’s say: nobody writes *fiction* for the money.
Except maybe Dan Brown and Stephen King. Maybe Danielle Steele. And I think JK Rowling has so much money now that money is just a moot point.
