Will decide to do a small tour of bookshops in local areas

Well,  I received  e mails from Dog Ear Publishing,  responding that they do more than allot of other publishers out there.  That they actually post the results every month.  I think I am a little frustrated,  because I had to wait past the middle of June,  now to the end of July for results.  I will be a little more patient.

I got another letter saying my application for ITIN has expired.  This was mostly due to two factors.  One was that they wanted a letter from Dog Ear Publishing from one of their financial people ( a signed official company letter with letterhead), which I did not think I had to have.  I sent all the appropriate contact information.  Second, was the Canada post strike.  Now, as long as I sell less than for a thousand dollars,  I believe I do not have to pay any taxes in the U.S.  Maybe Dog Ear is sure of this,  therefore did not send me the letter yet signed by one of their own account managers.  I am still waiting in the mail for that letter.  I give it another week, due to the mail strike,  maybe it is the reason why I did not get it.

For now,  I am on the internet blogger highway,  trying to make sense of all this new world I am venturing into.  Technology is exposed to make life easier.  Is it still people making it harder?  Lets cut the red tape,  and get into doing business again.  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"
