Default New publication - just sold first copy

Hi all, and a happy Christmas or happy holidays, whatever, to everyone.
Haven't posted for a while, been really busy as I'm a wedding photographer and got involved in wedding videography.
It's literally taken weeks to edit the videos; first they want this sound track, then that sound track. What's wrong with a kind of stunned silence as a sound track..
Also, being pretty success-oriented (I have American relatives, I blame them for this attitude), I thought that I'd rather wait until I had a success story to report rather than keep asking questions.
To get to the point, at long last, I finally published my historical publication `Skegness in the 1880s' , and today I actually sold a copy of it!
This is more of a break-through than it sounds, I haven't tried to sell a copy of it yet, been too busy searching the Web for stunned silence sound tracks.
It's a great feeling when someone finds something that you've created to kind of worthy, worthy of their time, their attention, worth buying. I'm not bothered about the money, this sense of achievement is worth more to me.
Anyway, enjoy the holiday and good luck with your own ventures,

Congratulations! How exciting - that must give a really happy rush!

Do let us know when/where you find a stunned silence soundtrack though, I think I could use that, too!
