Will polish off Part 3 of The Supermarket Guy.

Nice day out today, sun is strong. Snow will come down a bit today. The banks on the side of the road are a few feet high. I would say we usually get more snow for this time of the year, yet February is not over yet.

Will polish off Part 3, of The Supermarket Guy this week probably. Then send it off, to the copyright office. I have only a few pages to write of the ending, and it is done. It is probably the same length as the first one. I did not feel much inspiration to continue on with writing Part 4. As of late, I took a break, as not much movement is occurring for my ratings or sales. When the news is glum, I become a bum.. So to speak..

The Chapters in Moncton wanted a 45 % cut on the book. Very high, but usually I heard that is what they all want at the big chains. The smaller, more local bookstores, only wanted 20 %, but I gave them much more than that. I gave them around 35 %. 30 days to sell. The clock is ticking. After that, I will have to pick them up. Not very much time, I find. Should be interesting... Well, time to go and write something down.. 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"
