Fahrenheit 451

Just completed reading Fahrenheit 451.  I could not help,  but to link it up with my owns book progress.  Ray Bradburys book is about a world where,  no books are allowed.  The fire departments only function in this future novel is to destroy the books and home of anyone guilty of hiding them in their confines.  Ray Bradbury has a poignant, strong descriptive talent in pushing his story line through the pages of his novel.

The main Character is Montag,  who through meeting a young girl named Clarisse,  seems to change his concrete outlook on life.  He works for the fire department,  with its salamander and robotic hound,  whose prey it never loses track of.  Never.  As so it appears.  I give it 4 out of 5 stars.  I read a Halloween book in my teenage years,  which always gave me the wonderful feeling of Halloween by Mr. Bradbury.  I forget the title,  but will look for it now...  Love his writing.

Yet,  I find it interesting how it ties in to my books development so far.  I personally feel hauled into Ray Bradburys Fahrenheit 451.  How,  here at home,  it sells very well.  But,  go outside my own boundary,  the my book does not hardly sell at all.  It is buried among the other million or more published books out there.  Just too many books,  too little audience for it to be picked up...  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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
