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…

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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

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...
