The Rise of the Market Overlord Drafts are in.

The drafts are in from the editor. I will be going over them this afternoon, perhaps. Will only finish probably by Friday. I had this nagging cough, headache, and sinus and fever for the last 2 days. I could not do too much. The first night I had cold chills going through my body. It was as if I could not stay up long. Everytime I coughed, it produced a headache. As, I was coughing so much, that every time I hacked it produced pain in my cortex area. The second day I made another trip to the doctor, and he gave me more meds. Said the first doctor did not give me enough. At that time driving there, I noticed much weakness I had at the wheel.  It was surprising. And it is a cough that does not stop. Maybe for a minute, then I hack constantly for maybe a minute. Could not much of any quality sleep, either. And, the medication I take makes me go to the washroom. It does not help that you drink so much fluids during this time. I do feel better with the new meds. Another puffer to bring up the cold from the lungs, and some sort of one a day pill.

Besides that, I may correct a little bit of the draft today if I feel better. There was less mistakes on this copy, than the first book. Nearly half less mistakes. I can actually go through the page and read, through the errors instead of the errors being stacked on top of each other. They send a format through MS Word, where you go through the Tools and Review function. You click to accept or reject each correction. It goes through pretty fast, but i do read through it to see if they made any errors as well. Sometimes they correct over some of my typing, and I am trying to find out what I did wrong. I have to go to the new copy to see the difference at times, but this is rare.

I find I have been having hard luck as of late. But, that is the life goes. Up, and down, down and up. Hopefully we will see some up for awhile. Not fun to be sick, as I sit here coughing this up. We all go through these times, unfortunately. I will drink some more green tea and some lemon/ ginger hot drinks. My father always said they helped. I am uncertain, but will try even the old remedies to get rid of this nagging cough.

My blog is going a bit down from the previous month, and this is understandable. I did not really believe I could hold on to last months peak. I maybe down only 5 % which is not bad. I was not inspired to write too much this month either, as it seemed to be a busy one for me. I hope you have a good afternoon, 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"
