Will be sending book cover today.

Will be sending the book cover for Part 2 today. The scanner will be of higher quality, and show much more of the details that needs to be shown. There are burning embers in the air around the two characters doing battle. On my two scans, it does not show them in good enough quality, and perhaps with the other scan it may bring out more color.

Today I must blow out my gate. It is still frigid cold minus 16 or so out there, so I will try to be fast. There is not much news on the book front. Dog Ear said it would be 6 weeks before they contact me again, for any information about the book. It may have to do with the corrections. This manuscript was at around 65 000 words. It cost me .02 cents times the 65000 subtracting first the 53000 limit for the package. An extra 250 or so  dollars...  For corrections.. Oh well, you cannot always win! As they did give me a 10 % rebate for a returning author.  With the rebate applied, it did actually save me a little money.. Thank goodness. 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"
