Planning to advertise a bit

I am finally thinking of advertising a bit on radio.  Now,  the advertising rates in New York City is average 1400 dollars for a 30 second time slot.  I do not expect to advertise there,  as I find the rates a little too steep.  I will advertise there after I see some small advertising samples do some work for me.  Places like Portland, Maine has rates of 54 dollars for a 30 second spot.  But all these rates vary with the time,  and volume of ads coming in.  So you could pay allot more for advertising than the listed rates,  or a little less.  I could get a billboard advertising somewhere.  I heard that some people even spray painted some old cars on the side of roads to get exposure to their means.  I do have a funny idea for a u tube video..  Does anyone have a camera out there :)

I may even do a few radio contests where people can win a book by calling in.  I will talk with the radio stations to get their feedback on it.  For now,  the weather here is beautiful on the North Shore of New Brunswick.  I am still waiting for my shipment of books from Dog Ear.  It is either I can bring them into some local bookstores to sell on consignment,  or leave some copies at high traffic areas,  like hospitals or clinics, or hooters bars..  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"
