Too windy and raining out to start a fire!

I took my pages out to the old barrel I had placed outside.  I began striking matches,  and they blew out in the wind.  I then took some gasoline,  poured it over my Part 2 of The Rise of the Market Overlord.  Then it started to downpour rain,  so much,  that I could not get a flicker of a spark from my butane lighter....  Talk about bad luck..  I took the wet pages back in the house,  and let them dry in the basement...  I am beat.

My wife is also pregnant.  This was actually planned,  and we did it in our own time line.  People would try to push us to have one earlier,  then we would say,  no not ready,  and then finally the surprise.  I was not even sure we could have any,  but,  it appears it is now 2 months past and things are going ok.  The wife gets a little nausea     at times,  or somewhat heavy cravings to eat all of a sudden.  This does not pose well for my hidden stashes of chips, bars, and other treats hanging around the house.  I will have to be smarter,  and hide them in the dog houses attic...

The only other good news I have,  is that Penguin Canada is now my friend on Goodreads.  This is something, as a publisher (someone representing or working for this publisher) came and offered their friendship.  I love the Penguin website,  and they do churn out some spectacular books.  William Shatner is releasing a book there,  not long from now.  Well,  I have to go for now...  I need a beer...  Have a great evening,  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"
