How long did it take for myself to produce a book?

First,  I thought I could not do it.  But,  I wanted to try as I had this idea in my head in a general start. I would say the first copy was the shortest,  and I felt at first it should be put to a movie.  I tried searching on several sites,  but I found that as everyone knows, it is difficult to get to movie comedy producers and studios.  Especially living in a place in Atlantic Canada, as beautiful as it is. 

Approximately,  it took 8 months to complete book 1 of The Supermarket Guy.  I hung on to it,  for 7 years as I previously mentioned, due to the fact that I did not want to go first towards the book route.  It was a good thing in a way,  that I held on for 7 years because the book would have been 30 pages or so shorter than the original now out there at  Because of those years,  I added a little bit or finessed it.  I can remember,  just driving down the highway thinking of funny circumstances,  and how to incorporate them into my crazy book. 

To be quite truthful,  I can remember going to the theatres being dissatisfied with recent comedy releases.  Some comedies I used to watch,  I wanted to go home halfway through at the theatres.  But,  to the credit of the movie studios,  lately they have done a good job in the last few years of producing comedies,  such as the Hangover and Just go with It.

My second book took me much faster to produce.  It is on the shelf collecting,  you geussed it,  dust!  It took me around 4 months to produce The Supermarket Guy,  Part 2.  Luckily enough,  the writers flow continued in my veins and did not want me to stop.  I said to myself,  it will be difficult to produce a Part 3.  But,  hopefully some new ideas may come to fruitition.  I have thought already of 2 or 3 seperate types of comedies,  that I probably would work on first. 

I must admit,  a wife that works evening shifts and a case of beer helps when writing!

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
