Part 3 of The Supermarket Guy ready to be sent to U.S. copyright!

The U.S. Copyright office has been the most efficient of the book writing process. 65 dollar U.S. charge for mailing, but much cheaper if you send over the internet. A 35 dollar fee. Fill out the form, and usually you get the registration in around 10 days or so. It takes a bank draft, if sending through the mail. I tried with a postal money order one time, and if I remember correctly, it came back. I had to send the funds back, and everything went great afterwards.

Today in Northern NB, the sun is out. The wind is low. It means it should be a pretty nice day, at around minus 1. Things to do around the house, cleaning, and getting some odd jobs done. As all of us have to do, at times.

 I got a letter from Goodreads, and they gave advice on some book selling. They said books with no written reviews, are added by seven people on average, as compared to books with 5 written reviews, are added by 40 people on average. That has always been my Achilles Heel. The book review. I had people put on the board that they were going to read it, but never had a review. The people around the area said they found it very good. But, everyone has different tastes, and I know perhaps a bad review may come. At any rate, I know what Goodreads means. And, they say that I should, have a book giveaway sometime. I have no books at the house. Maybe 2 left. How do I go about mailing them, and such. Maybe Dog Ear, could do the process for me to a limit, and then, cut off the process when no more books are available from my purchases. I will talk to them a little later about this. Have a good day, 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"
