The Supermarket Guy, Dog Ear Publishing

Just as late,  I have checked my new books standing at dog ear.  It is 589 out of 652 standing in the fiction search for best selling overall.

The real question is,  does comedy fiction sell well?  I am unsure up to this point,  as I will only know in the coming weeks.  The company did a great job with the website,   I already got some great feedback from some people,  who liked the graphics.

Still,  I have qualms about publishing part 2 of the supermarket guy.  It just all depends on how well recieved the first one is.  As a wise man once said,  put your nose to what you are good at,  and to what you do not succeed at, let alone.  Maybe it was my father.  Oh well.

I also have ideas for at least another 3 books,  2 of the comedy genre.  But I have not even begun to write yet.  I see the usual books in the top 100 in amazon,  the Shania Twain bio,  The little boy who went to heaven,  and Steig Larssons books,  which I consider elite books.  Browsing through Dog Ear Publishing best selling ranks,  I can see they are all wonderful books pertaining to a certain class of reader.  I truly hope everyone can do well out there.

I will be posting my first June 15th sale results ( Hopefully they will be over 10). Chow for now...

Is this my very first blog piece? The Rankings today do not rattle my chain one bit. When I click on the popularity rankings at Amazon, I just go through the first two pages. My books, never reached that plateau. I guess comedic fiction does not sell well, now here in 2012...

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"
