16 books gone in a weeks time

16 books left the house in a weeks time.  5 sold today alone.  It surprises me at times how certain things can happen very rapidly in one day. Where does the spark come from.  Just the awareness that comes with some advertising.  If we are not aware of the product,  then it will stay hidden forever.  I have to begin a tally to determine how many I will sell in the next little while.

I see my book is still for sale in France, Italy, Japan, England, the USA, Canada and Germany.  How would anyone in a foreign country with different languages read an English book for that matter?  Yet how would they even sell it,  if no advertising is done either?  And, to my dismay,  there is only one search engine where I can find my book listed,  and it is Google or Google chrome.  Webmaster and Norton will sometimes bring up the book after a few searches.  It did not help that the search has to have Super market broken up.  I wanted Supermarket to be together,  like the word...  But,  live and learn I guess.  The money I gather from Part 1 will go towards the launch of Part 2 in a separate account I will create at the bank...  I will not spend it on booze,  no Crown Royal or beer.  I have to restrain myself..  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"
