Another person at work liked my book!

Another person at work found my book to be very good.  And then asked how did I accomplish such a story.  Then someone came during the late hours of the night,  and asked to purchase one.  Then in the morning,  another person came in and asked to purchase one.  He also remarked that it was quite something to do,  and that he was impressed by the fact that I wrote a book.  I am always taken aback by this reaction to writing it.  Then asking me to sign it,  which is too much.  As,  I feel I done nothing extraordinary.  That in a universe of 140 million books,  mine is just a dwarf star.  For awhile,  I felt a little foolish,  actually to even have tried to attempt the feat.  But,  as the old man said,  if you do not try you will never know the end result.

The % of money made, in order to produce Part 2,  is now at around 4 % of the grand total.  I like doing the percentage thing,  as I find it gives me an idea of how long I have to go to get to 100 %.  Still a drop in the bucket,  and many more books to sell before embarking the main character on his second journey..  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"
