The head doesn't know what the tail is doing!

The head does not know what the tail is doing.  Today,  at Dog Ear publishing,  I asked again if the prices got reduced for my E book.  Don't get me wrong,  the people are great there.  I think it is just,  that they are so busy,  that they do not cover all the bases.  And,  no one is expected to know everything.  A saleslady responded through e mail that the E kindle prices should be lowered very shortly.  I also asked during that time if the Paddyfield, Bucher, WHsmith, Barnes and noble, Chapters Indigo, ect, was all lowered as well for the kindle.

She responded it would cost another 150 dollars for to put it on Apple I Pad and the Barnes and Noble format E book.  Talk about a giant surprise.  I thought that,  when it went out as an E Book from the publisher,  the formats were already done.  I mean,  really,  how difficult is it to change it from one program format to another.  So, I sent back the e mail saying,  I want it done for sure,  and sure,  charge me the 150 dollars.  I cannot miss out an opportunity to try to make, albeit, a few sales on Apple systems...  Or even Barnes and Noble.  I still cannot believe that,  they think I look that smart.  I mean,  I am somewhat handsome,  but smart...  Well..  I am average.. Lets leave it at that... It just goes to show,  you cannot ask enough questions during a process.  If you ask allot of questions, no matter how stupid they maybe,  you may catch on to something missing or,  lacking...   Have a great evening!

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"
