5 more people at work offered to buy a copy

It seems,  I have now sold 5 more copies at work.  This makes up to 10 copies sold,  at work alone.  One guy is going to buy one at the local bookstore.  It is nice of my friends to pick it up.  Now I understand how some people who do POD can get a spike in sales at the beginning of a release of a book on amazon,  just from relatives and friends buying it.

Two people who I have dealt with at Dog Ear love my cover for part 2.  My wife seems to find the colors not strong enough,  or pronounced enough.  I was beginning to think I was getting cataracts at the age of 37.

I never got a chance to read Part 2 again,  refine it,  read it again,  and refine it.  Spell check is done,  but all of the scenes and action has to fit in place in the time frame.  And to check to see if I still find I get the giggles when I read it,  over,  and over again.  Time for a beer...  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"
