Part 2, Rise of the Market Overlord a far fetched concept...

As I told my co workers at work,   Part 2 of the Supermarket Guy will probably be never published.  Sales are sluggish,  and this is just the number one underlying factor.  It is difficult to justify spending another 3500 dollars for a book that,  does not produce or generate any sales worth while talking about.  I probably sold 25 copies in the last few weeks, which is barely keeping over the cost of giving some free copies to relatives away.  My relatives and a few friends were very good to me when I was young,  so I obviously did not want any money for the freebies given to them. My fledgling career as an author has come to an abrupt stall.  I cannot write,  without anyone buying my product.  I sure had ideas for a part 3,  and a part 4,  but it is impossible to write without some positive encouragement. And,  a book on comedic poetry as well... All in the dustpan,  as my mother would say.  There is no chance to be given.  Even amazon, or any other site it is on, they books are far buried down the line in hundreds of thousands of e pages.  Who,  in their right mind will look for a book buried,  that far down the blackened abyss of POD.

And my book is now 4 to 5 months old.  Soon it will be steamrolled over,  yet again,  by new releases.  I am thinking of doing a campfire tonight,  and starting it with the pages of Part 2.  Does my ten fans want to come over and roast some hotdogs.. How about a pig?  It is on a CD,  I unfortunately cannot burn plastic ( environmental hazard),  but I can break it up in a thousand pieces with my 12 lb sledge... Your Frustrated author, but I love my then fans!!! 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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
