Rain is here from downgraded Hurricane Irene

The rain is here from downgraded Hurricane Irene.  It just started around 5 pm,  Atlantic time.  I come home from work to rush to tie some things down.  Tomorrow,  we will get the most of the storm,  and by 3 pm the center of the storm should be a 300 km north of us.  Gusts of 90 km per hour or more will join the storm for some shaky weather.

I think,  when it rains,  I get most of my work done here at the house.  When the sun is out,  we all have a hard time to sit in the house.  I will continue to color away at my cover page for Part 2 tonight.  It should be done by tomorrow,  as it appears I will be in all day tomorrow as well.

As far as the advertising for my book goes,  I will decide tomorrow if I will place an ad over a radio station in the United States.  Prices range from 250 to 1400 per package.  My friend has sent 500 spinning logos of my book throughout his advertising realm thus far.  I am not sure what effect it will have.  Have a great evening,  till next time...

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"
