The Supermarket Guy Ranks High In Relevance...

Relevance.  They say your book has to have credibility and relevance to sell.  At least,  I know the public or whoever rates the book, thinks it has,  relevance.  My book ranks # 1 in Dog Ear Publishing 90 day as a new release relevance in the U.K.  And when you go through the 700s, in Dog Ear Fiction,  my book can fall anywhere from under 50 to 25 from the top.

Relevance is all about being current.  Pertinent,  having to do with todays social issues,  having to deal with todays society.

As far as credibility,  I can honestly say it is intrically put together.  Just the fact that the main character could and should have been fired several times in the book, and at the end it comes to a head.  The boss fires a warning shot, better be here at such and such a time or you will regret it.  And he does not appear that night.  How many second chances does a guy get?  Credibility also has to deal with the moral of the book,  which in plain sight can be seen, no one really gets fired.  Everyone deserves a second chance.  Maybe a third.  Till then....

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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
