Christmas is passed, time to do other tasks!

Reading an article from Misty Harris this morning, from Postmedia news. He indicated some numbers, which I find, for myself, are hard to find. These are some of the facts he dished out on the 24th edition of the local news papers article.

Amazon announced this year, that it was selling 105 E books as compared to 100 paper books on its site.

The industry as a whole, E books now account for 1/4 of U.S. book sales, and 20 % by volume.

Most people, believe there will always be a mix of sales. Of the hard, and of the E format.

80 % of people predicted making more purchases from their E phones.

And, from that E phone, you can control your homes heating system, lights, ect, all from it. Some people believed it would eventually replace the wallet.

It just goes to show, how far technology has come, from using a VIC 20 or Commodore 64 in the early 80s. I used to love the programming of those machines, as we as kids, could change some of the programming fairly easily.  Just a few stats up there, to start your day.

Today, will be relaxing, and maybe trying to work on my Part 2 this afternoon. I have some visitors here, so, I maybe late at working. As I have said before, it is great, not to have a deadline with this stuff. Although, I was always the type of person to try to finish my work ahead of time. It is just, the way I am geared. 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"
