What is usually my smaller royalty check anymore (because the books have been out a long time) earned enough that I can buy my plane ticket for Cincinnati.
This has made all my long hours and hard work worthwhile.
Cincinnati is home. It's my Mecca.
Next week I need to fly home for my aunt's memorial service. In June I'm signed up for Lori Foster's Readers' and Writers' Get Together in Cincinnati so I hope to attend that, too. And in July, I'd like to go for a family reunion.
Without this, my parttime job, I might not be able to go once. Because of my writing, I can go at least once this year and hopefully more.
Although my writing helps my family a lot, my primary reason to write is because I love weaving stories. Still, this is a very nice benefit.
