A bit of self promotion, if I may
This is a bit of self promotion but it is really more of a call for my writer friends to put their work out there in the public domain for consumption - free and otherwise.
Today, I received my first royalty check from Amazon Digital Services for my short piece about VADM James Bond Stockdale Inspirational Leadership Award Winners HERE. It is not a large check, but it is a significant return for the time and effort I invested. I tried to get United States Naval Institute PROCEEDINGS to publish it several years ago. It was the first thing that I sent them that they rejected. My 5 previous articles were purchased and published - one after another. This is a bit of redemption for me with this piece. If PROCEEDINGS had published it, I would have lost money and the experience of self-publishing on Kindle.
