Look what I got!

Ed the Two Hour Wargames Guy sent me three author's copies of 5150: Star Navy, and they got here yesterday.  It's my first professional wargame publication, and I'm still pretty thrilled about the whole thing.

Sure, I have all the rules on my computer, but I enjoy the tactile sensation of flipping through a hardcopy.  It's also more convenient to thumb through the physical book for reference than to alt-tab back and forth between the existing rules and the Star Navy expansion I'm working on.

Yep, it is definitely a thrill seeing something you wrote or helped write in print. It (along with a copy pr two of the rules)is also the main compensation you will get for the time and effort you put into the project, LOL. Most years my "royalty" payments total about enough to take my wife out to dinner once at a nice restaurant... although that does improve her view of my hobby somewhat! :-)

It's a pretty amazing feeling. Revel in it!
