Total sales results not out yet!

My Apologies again.  The sales results from Dog Ear publishing are still not updated for July.  They say the middle of the month,  so I always assume the 15 th of the month.  Could it be that they have slow counters?  Could it be they have computer problems?  Could it be I sold zero copies?  It is all relevant to knowing nothing.

All I can say,  is that come July 18 th,  I should have something.  I think I sold 10 or 20 copies,  maximum.  I will be quite frank. There is no big advertising campaign here.  I know usually,  and the stories,  of how even some comic books went through hard times to achieve sales.  Marvel, Archie, for awhile, but they bounced back somehow.  I think Marvel with the movies.  Oh well.  The next few days I will pour over my Part 2,  dreaming that I can publish it.  But I will face perhaps a grim, bitter reality.  The numbers will not be there to produce it.  I know it.  And even this blog will disappear from the web universe.

Alas,  we will do what everyone else can do.  Look for something else to do with our time.  I was invited to a moose hunt this fall.  Maybe I can blog about that!  Till then....  Keep drinking beer!

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"
