Concentrate, just like minute maid orange juice!

It is hard to concentrate on my book,  as I am working 3 day shifts this week.  Half of the time of the month,  my hands are tied,  and unable to react to any notion that comes up to help with the sale of my book.  It was, although, very nice how one Dog Ear Representative reacted to my book.  The person replied, you have only one sale for June only.  That does not take into effect July yet,  which will be out Aug. 21 st.  You probably sold more during that month.

This person was actually very nice to me,  and kept myself up when I felt a little down.  If every company would have a more human touch to it,  I am sure it would make the extra difference just in sales.  But I do find the Dog Ear Publishing staff do go out of their way to explain the book conundrums that I find myself trying to find explanations too.  So far,  they have given me prompt answers to 99 % of my e mails.  They only complicated one per cent of the process with the ITIN number.  A number which,  I still cannot obtain,  but I will wait for the mail to come in a bit further down the road.... Good news is that my book is still # 1 in Relevance for Dog Ear Publishings 90 day new release list.  Unfortunately,  I will be soon gone from that list,  as time whisks bye.  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…

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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
