Sales results are slow coming.

No sales results yet from Dog Ear Publishing.  I went to one blog,  where an author who deals with Dog Ear had a hard time to get sales results from them.  What he said, was that in effect,  it is difficult to know how well your book is really doing.  How much to spend on advertising,  and so on,  before it is too late.  I was thinking much the same.

I sent two e mails to get some information on sales.  They will only read the e mails on Monday, as they are off for the weekend. The July results are not up yet.  From there,  if no one gives me a satisfactory response,  I will need to make a phone call.  The other blog site added that a person could set up your own book counting system,  from free programs offered on the internet.  I will check into that later.  I am quite satisfied with Dog Ear publishing,  except the sales reporting information.  Till then...  Part 2 still lays in limbo.

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"
