52 hits in one day on one of my writings!

I am surprised that I got 52 hits in one day on one of my writings about book collecting,  on Goodreads site.  Usually I get maybe a hit or two a day on a column that I write, then nothing for awhile,  and it takes months to accumulate 20 or so hits.  It is amazing,  if you can talk about something that gets to a certain segment of readers heart,  then it takes off like wildfire.  It was about book collecting.  Something I feel more people should get into,  and something that I think the Antiquarian societies should promote more of.  Some people have libraries of books.  I have,  to be honest, an 8 by 10 shelf that is full of books (encyclopedias not counting).  That many hits in one day, never happened to me before,  and not even on here.  Although I have been fortunate enough to get hits every day for the last little while on here.  Phew...  As I thought I would have to retire,  like that guy off of 60 minutes....  Whats his name..  right...

If the book does not do well,  then I am glad someone out there seems to be entertained by my wrangling.

Today,  Andy Rooney has retired at the age of 92 from his special segment on 60 minutes.  33 years on the show.  I found for the most part,  he always had the last word.  Well,  his segment was always at the end of the show.  And,  it was very entertaining,  as he seemed to slyly ridicule the governments processes and failures in an astute, but maybe devious way.  Not in the underhanded sense,  but in the circuitous sense.  What will Morely Safer do without Mr. Rooney?  He will be missed... They will have to get Lady Gaga to do the last segment...  America has retired one of its great news analysts...

Unfortunately,  no news on the book.  I guess,  sometimes no news is good news... 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"
