The lure of a self help book...

There are allot of self help books out there.  Some to help you cook, some to help with your financial situation, and even some to help you sell more books. I usually find, that they, for the most part are, good sellers. They seek out a problem in someones life, and offer many or more solutions.  Some are there for to give an offer of a window of spirituality, and some are there to help you through your marriage or divorce.

I sometimes bought the odd self help book for to understand how to be better at taxes. The whole "for dummies"  series is a whopping success. In the end, I found rather the ways at how other people save money on taxes. Having a home business, you can claim allot of expenses, for example, in a leased car to renovating some of your home for the business. Most of it is geared into investing into retirement investment funds, or mutual funds, and how to ride out the storms. How many times have I heard that on television, I cannot count on my hand.

Do I need a self help book on how to sell my very own book? Well, once I buy that one, I would need a computer self help book to get me to the next rung on how to use the internets capabilities. Then maybe another for knowing the quality or maximum bang for the buck. I rather not, in the end, and to its own end I rather let it do its very own splash or small ripple in the sea of life. Whatever the end result will be, I am satisfied that I tried with what I had available to me at the time.. Don't get me wrong, sometimes a self help book can help, in allot of situations depending on the circumstances... It is just up to the person in the end to choose what advice he needs to get through the rungs... 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"
