3 Guys at work want to buy books!

Today, I got three offers to buy books from work.  One guy is a an avid hunter, the other an avid sailor, and the other is an avid Boston Bruins fan! One guy asked again for to sign it, when I bring it in. Before this, I have two sales coming through the bookstores.

This is good news, at it is another 50 or 70 dollars closer to starting Part 2. When it goes up by increments like that, it is going up 2 % or so from the total required on this day. I would love to write tonight, but, after working a 12 hour shift, sometimes I am scared I will lose a certain focus and just go sideways, instead of forward with the writing.

Going sideways can help a writer sometimes. Sometimes, you need to go sideways to develop a characters traits. If you go reverse, you can also bring up some history about a character also, but that is something that I rarely do. Going forward is bringing up new situations that coincide with links in the past. I try, sometimes to go forward and you hope to go forward much throughout any writing. Sideways is ok too, and sometimes I may go to far sideways in a story. But, if it is really good, I think it is alright.

Besides that, not much news that I know of, on the book front. I will keep an eye out on top of mount book store. Have a great night, 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"
