My cough is nearly gone now.

Was at work today, and to my contentment, my cough is nearly gone. I cough maybe once every 2 hours now, and it is usually a little grunting that may go on. Maybe I am getting ready for moose season. The Antibiotics helped, within two days. It is all it took, for to get me to cough less from every 5 minutes to once every hour back then. I am glad, hopefully I can get back into some kind of exercising again. I do not want to go too hard, due to the fact that my cough kept me from training for a month or more.

Besides that, Twitter has helped me attain 419 followers. I do not know if I will learn much more about it than what I do now. You can talk to channels, and in channels as well long as you put the # mark ahead of where you are going. There are probably thousands of channels, and I do not know how to attract thousands of followers in a day, like some people who got the knack. If you can get into the window where they have selected followers, they do advertise for some. You have to contact a twitter representative, and see if you can get into that window that showcases your profile box to thousands of people at a time. I did not try that avenue yet. Hard to believe you can get that many followers in a day.

Not sure what effect it will have on book sales. I am somewhat in the thinking that, for every 100 that follows you on twitter, maybe 2 may buy your book. Some people say it takes a thousand followers for one book in some instances. Maybe my stats are thoughtfully wrong, but I am not being optimistic just yet. It will take a few months to figure things out. I need publicity, for my book. But, my book, as I was told by my relatives and in laws, was high quality and very interesting. Some friends laugh at me, when mentioning the book. It must be funny or my hair is sticking up like a rooster. No reviews yet, but I am hoping that someone on Goodreads (5 people bought it and opted to review it) will get to it sometime real soon. Just that they have 100s of books ahead of it, well some of them. I think it is allot of work, as a tweet may garner the attention of 15 ? people at a time, if the tweets are going fast on a page. Like in the Hunger Games channel, my tweet would be down at the bottom faster than I could link up with it to see the post. I do not believe many people see the tweets there. Maybe it depends how effective the message gets across. Very interesting indeed.

The winds were very high today, on the Acadian Peninsula. So high, that a big bulk cargo ship could not dock at one of our local ports here. The wind is cold, and we are back in the frigid temperatures, as old man winter is going out like a lion.

Not much else to report today. I hope you all have a good evening, or morning, where ever you are tuning in from. 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"
