A person at work wants to put in in the news at work!

Where I work,  we got our own monthly newspaper.  Just about tidbits that go around the workplace.  Retirements, safety, and training, ect.  A lady in administration congratulated me on my book,  and wanted to know if I would like to put it in the rural bulletin or the at work bulletin.

I responded,  that at work,  I would get allot of distractions and e mails on the subject.  I rather it be a slow crawl there,  than a deluge.  But,  in the messenger,  where people cannot really bother me,  I thought that was the way to go for now.   And,  I know what you are thinking.  Why miss out on an opportunity at work to spread the word,  to make more sales.

Honestly,  I think only my own station would probably buy most of the copies.  The rest of the network,  would only glance at interest and e mail concerning details, ect.  At work,  through my work e mail,  this could leave me to a busy smurf for a little while.  I would be asked for autographs at work, the book at work,  what it is about, how did I produce it,  and that old famous saying, "can I have your handkerchief that you just rubbed your sweaty body with...."  Of course you can have it!

And I hear the Gillar prize is being awarded today in Toronto,  I think.  Well,  I was not nominated,  which is strange indeed.  Perhaps the winner will forfeit it over to me,  after learning of my books existence after 50 years go by.  Well,  at any rate,  I wish the winner the best and great writing ahead...  Have to go sleep now,  night shift coming 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"

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...
