Is the main character really a bad guy? A character review.

Someone asked me that the other day.  Is the main character really a bad guy?  In my opinion,  he is not really a bad guy.  He is just a little rude and quick thinking.  For instance,  the way he treats seniors is only bad when he gets worked up.  If he is calm, and the storm is passed,  he usually treats the seniors with respect and dignity,  like when things went wrong at the market.  But let there be no doubt,  the main character was placed there in order to have certain mixed reactions and wrong feelings at the wrong or right time.  The way he treats his freind Steve,  as you may notice,  is usually always a little beneath him.  But,  yet Steve plays the nice guy and lets Harry take the lead.  Steve is usually the most rational one there,  and probably could do the managing job better than everyone there at the supermarket.  But he stays in the background,  maybe it is a little lack of confidence or ambition.

Lucie, on the other hand,  is the gullable school girl type character,  that believes everyone is nice and nobody is naughty.  She has some control over certain situations,  and is direct and a mediator.  As far as the villians are concerned,  well,  Bob is what he is.  High on himself,   possibly because of his success.  Dilley, the first villian,  is a control freak but he loses himself in the liquor he drinks.  Harrys' freind Brandt, is a cool shadey cat who is quick on the move to new things.  That pretty much covers some of the most devious characters..

But,  now an update on sales.  Dog Ear Publishing 594 out of 661 in Best selling category.  I am actually pleased with this number,  as there are 100's of thousands of books out there.  The press release is out,  and now I will wait for the June 15 th sale releases to see if a Part two is in the cards.  I have to admit I am a good auction player too....

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"
