I picked up this lead from Jenna's post in the Paying Markets forum about Muscle Car News. I've negotiated a deal with them for one filler article (based on an excerpt from the book I'm writing) plus a 300 word monthly column for their electronic newsletter. While I don't have an official contract yet, or a date of publication for the article, we've worked out most of the terms. I'm really excited, as this is my first paid writing assignment.
