My cousin will recieve my book today!

My cousin,  who is a journalist will receive The Supermarket Guy today.  He mentioned that he would ask a reviewer to do a provincial piece in the paper for me,  which sounds interesting.  I have hundreds of dollars of radio ads to be put in within the next month,  so we will see how that goes. Everyone says,  that it is hard to track a radio ad success rate.  They say you have to stay on message,  like W. Bush did in his election campaigns. If you look at Al Gore,  he was a boring but smart person.  W. Bush, was not as smart but he stayed on message.  He won the election,  just barely. And won the second election handily.  I will have to hire Karl Rove to sell my books.  If you look at advertising in big papers, like the New York Times,  it could run a person up to several thousand dollars.  It takes deep pockets to do such an endeavor,  and I still have bills to pay here at the house.  It has been said,  you can even pay a person somewhere in a big city to promote your book.  This is an interesting concept,  of paying someone to sit on the side of the sidewalk and pitch your book.  I do not think I will follow the second option.

Besides that it is warm and beautiful outside here in Northern New Brunswick.  I got a haircut,  and my barber said I would need a # 6 in the near future,  as my hair is getting thin on top.  I think I am going through a mid life crisis.  Quick,  get me a beer.  Not to pour over my head, either...   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"
