You got to have a main theme in your book.

I was looking on a website the other day, and it said you have to have a main theme for your book to help it sell. 

I asked a friend of mine,  what did they think the theme of my book was.  The reply,  goofing off will help you go far in life.  I paused and I thought about that.  I responded,  I do not think that is really the main theme of the book.  Honestly,  it is about people who lost their way from home and somehow they come back.  I mean this,  in the freind way.  Finding bad freinds,  brushing them off,  but then realizing the old freinds were there when he needed them the most,  and returning to them again.  But,  I will leave it to everyone to find a main theme to the book.

I will phone Dog Ear today,  to determine where the sales information is.  I go to the sign on site,  and it is listed either under June 11 or for the year 11.  But,  they are still showing zeros.  Maybe this afternoon I will find that I have actually sold 10 books...

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"
