Sympathy sales?

Of course,  you always have to have a few people at work that are always somewhat on the hunt for a teasing.  Some people even now call me the name of the character of the book.  I threatened to make a book of that individual, and he backed down a bit.  Then,  someone asked if I was doing good in the sympathy sales.  I responded,  yes,  very good.  Maybe he was alluding to that the sales at work are from people who are actually care bears.  I would say some yes,  but some would fall in the category of  curiosity. But I believe there is some honesty in there for the most part,  and that when they said they liked it that it was a sure answer back.  I know some of them definitely would not hide the true review from myself or anyone for that matter.

Anyways,  another 2 sales last night.  I will deposit it in an account at the bank,  just strictly for Part 2.  I am now a little above 4 % to get to a 100 % of the mark.  I feel like the ukulele man on the Price is Right,  trying to get up the mountain while hoping not to get stopped by overbidding. 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"
