Book is all over the world now!

It is hard to believe,  how a book written by yours truly is available,  all over the world now.  I checked the other night,  and it is in spectacular Portugal.

When first writing it,  I thought it would be in the USA and Canada.  I never imagined it,  to be able to be found in Japan, Germany, India, China, France, Italy, Netherlands, and great England,  just to name a few.  It is not even,  translated into these languages.  Why would anyone with a different language,  even attempt,  to pick it up?

Now,  I tried to add up all these populations the other night.  And,  then you try to figure out the % of internet based people in all of these countries.  People who have access.  Then,  try to figure out the % who is looking for a book..  Interesting...

So,  internet connections,  lets say an average of 80 %  of the population has access.  Lets say my book is being sold to Europe, USA, England, Japan, China, India, ect.  I am estimating a possible viewership of 2.8 Billion.  Now at 80 %,  2.2 Billion.  Now,  those who looks for books...  I am estimating, 20 % of the population seriously looks for books.  Hum.. Am I right...  But,  then there is the language barrier..  This could slice the numbers down,  dramatically.

Lets say we do not take into consideration the language barrier..

440 million viewers..  For books...  Am I right.. Probably not..  But it is amazing,  how it is all over the world. When you see,  only 2 copies left,  in certain areas,  I wonder what is going on.  When I see several used copies for sale,  I wonder,  what is going on.  As,  everywhere on every site I see this.  But,  yet I have not generated much of any sales...  I will keep my ears wide open....  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"
