Should I make a collectible hardcover version of my book?

A collectible hardcover version of my book would be awesome. It would be, later on down the road, if the demand starts to gain.  I think a hardcover book is more expensive, but more durable, and more desirable to have on a persons shelf. It is easier to hit a burglar over the head with it,  if you catch him in and about the house. And it feels more like a rock, too!

Besides that, at work,  I found 6 equipment deficiencies.  Everybody at work finds, problems, the human kind (are rare), and the equipment kind.  Mostly the Equipment kind. Out of the 6 problems, I solved 3. Then, of the three last problems, one of them led me to another problem which, I had to fix. Then, the three I could not fix gets sent down to another department.  In effect, most of my job today was, preventative maintenance.

Preventative maintenance is trying to catch something before it becomes a bigger problem down the line. For instance,  where one problem, e.g. A broken heater may leave to a frozen water line, saves allot of manpower and expenses on materials.  This is part, of my job.  Trying to be ahead, looking ahead, for possible future, roadblocks.

Like my book.  I am trying to forge ahead, peering, looking, into the future and gauging how far, I can go with this writing gig. The only problem is,  is, that I am not trained in the methods of the wisest book people known out there.  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"
