Some good news on the book front.

Last night at work,  a co worker came in.  Began asking me about the process of writing a book.  I revealed everything about the main processes that I went through,  with my publisher.  He bought a book from me.  After explaining quite a bit, and how much it cost,  we both paused and looked at each other for a few minutes.  I thought I would hear some news or something about the book I had sold him.

I broke the silence.  I said,  "So did you read my book?".  He replied,  "No", then a pause, "But the wife read it.  She liked it allot though".   So,  his wife read it.  And,  once again,  a reconfirmation of,  the status of the book.  I take this also as a strong review,  as,  if it was bad he would have greased me over pretty good.  He holds no punches, and is not a really close friend.

With other news,  it seems some news releases about my book has come out in October on certain news wires. It is hard to understand,  how this happened at all.  But,  it could be linked to my transformation of my E book into Apple format and Nook.

Also,  a few guys at work are going to buy a few copies online,  instead of me having to sell direct.  This is good,  to test how the system works from my publisher.  I will see if the tally of books purchased equals the amount on Dog Ears system.  I am sure it will..  If I am lucky,  October should be a better month than the rest and maybe I will have a few more than usual sales than the few from the guys at work.  I must really thank the guys at work,  for their support.  They all gave the book a good review.

Now,  I must go to bed,  try to recharge my batteries.  Night shifts are tough on the head...  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"
