A rainy Remembrance Day.

The rain is coming down strong in Northern New Brunswick today.  I imagine all of the Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held inside,  under the cover of Legions, and School Gymnasiums. I will go visit my father today, to maybe watch the celebration on Parliament hill.  I think the weather maybe good up there in Ontario today.

Besides that, I found still some media releases coming out for my book. This is surprising, as the media releases were done several months ago.

I have found 2 new Media Releases in October. I found 3 more today, with my book advertised on X-mencomics.com, ebuyjewelry, and a dutch European site translated as Tasty Chicks.... All of these media releases, I had no absolute idea where they continue to come from or how they got where they are still going.

I am assuming two things. One, that Dog Ear is still promoting the books a little on the side. They know I have a part 2, and 2 other books in the work. It is in their best interests that the book actually sells, as to produce several other books through their company is bonuses all around.  Second, I believe my friend at work is advertising for me, as the slogan "The Supermarket Guy by Daren Doucet" was found as a reference on a Jewelry page on ebuyjewelry.  A short slogan like that, tells me, he may have put it up on there. As he continues to kindly advertise for me.

All in all, it is important to have a moment of silence today for our great War Veterans. We should all take a moment to reflect, to think about, and to be thankful for. And, on a different note, we should all sometime take a few minutes or an hour out of a day in the week to see a lonely veteran, or to talk to an aging senior. It can only bring some wonderful and great stories into our lives as well, about the old ways of life.  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"
