My book is not offered in Kobo format.

Who was to know. I assumed, wrong. That, my book was in all formats for the E Readers. One of my relatives asked the question; is your book on Kobo? I replied, it must be. To back up my claims, I went to the Kobo site. There, I typed in many of my different search words for The Supermarket Guy. Some sites offer it with a break in the Super Market. I could not find my version on Kobo.

In calling Dog Ear, their representative said they only offer it in Kindle, Nook, and I Book formats. That is it. Allot of my friends have the Kobo, so this came to me as a mild surprise. I am sure some computer wizards out there can change the format, if they really wanted to view it on the old Kobo. But, it is probably a few who can do this. I payed 150 dollars for the three formats, on top of my book publishing fees.

A person at work, commended me for writing a book. Allot of authors get commendations, especially the true famous ones. Stephen King, Tom Clancy, Pierre Burton. Personally, I do not think of it as anything great. I believe many people can write a story and publish it today. Allot of people commended me at work, actually. As mentioned before, if you got the time and resources, and maybe even a ghost writer, allot of people can write a book. But I do believe it takes some patience, a wild imagination at times, and no mental blockages.

Besides that, no other news on the book front. I did not get my Part 2 back to check out the first proof. They will e mail me when they do, with a stark warning: Read over the material, carefully, and ensure there are no mistakes in the main body, done by us or skipped in the editing. If it is done by them, no charge. If it is done by myself, then they may charge me depending on how many I find. Now it is all up to me. Have a good evening, till next time.

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"
