The Authors famous spaghetti sauce....

When your book has the blues,  there is something else you can do besides reaching for the booze...

Make the authors famous spaghetti sauce...  Here it goes..

1 lb of hamburger,  brown in a pan,  since the color of sales is dark.
1 lb of sausage,  brown in a pan,  since,  well never mind.
4 cloves of garlic,  because no one is asking for your signature anyways.
a tsp of basil,  as it smells like the pages of a newly sold book.
half a tsp of oregano,  this will cheer you up.
mushrooms,  1 pkg,  chopped finely,  like the white pages of your book tossed in.
one quarter green pepper,  to ease the headaches,  diced.
2 cans of crushed tomatoes,  seeing red with no sales.
1 can of tomato soup,  as it has even salt in it.
1 tsp of tomato paste.
1 small can of heinz juice,  156 ml as you ran out of beer to mix with it anyways.
pepper,  not much salt,  to taste.

But all in a big pot,  half heat boil,  then simmer for an hour.  Why an hour..  To let all the negative criticism of your book float away, and to make sure the herbs mix and share their aroma..

Ohh,  and a dash of thyme... Not too much...

Eat your heart out,  Julia Child!!!  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"
