My first tattoo will be the cover of my first book.
I've known that for a long time.
I imagined a contract and a trip to the parlor with my advance.
Now I've self-published three books, but I need to change the rules.
Putting out an ebook and selling almost nothing doesn't count.
Last quarter marked the first time Amazon and Smashwords sent me money.
High-five me. I earned $24 in nearly a year and a half.
Hardly tattoo money, but I'm on my way.
When I get more dough together, I want my logo stuck on my arm.
I can say: “This guy, right here, branded in ink, is Eighty Six the Poet.”
