Design approval came in for my book.

A memorable quote from the 1931 Frankenstein Movie: "Look! It's moving. It's alive, It's alive..."

Today, the information came in for the design approval. A sample of what the book will look like, from Dog Ear Publishing. They decided to change the design layout from the first, and it is probably needed. In my heart, I did love The Supermarket Guy 1 interior design. It had that magic to it, and the starting letter and chapter letters had a mystery to it. The starting letters representing them, in the form of lightning, sort of.

This book, will look business like. It is, more of a business oriented book. Has to do with Harold taking the helm of a company, and trying to get it out of its struggling times. They gave me back the sample with my name on every second page. I changed it, to put the chapter # s up there. I rather that, so people will remember what chapter they are on while they are reading the book. The only other error I seen from the publisher was the disappearance of my sub title from the title page. Rise of the Market Overlord, has to be placed, just below The Supermarket Guy II: . That was the only two things, that I wanted to change. If there was any other serious changes, I would have had to fax them the changes. But, they tell me now, it will be a fast process. I should receive the first pass (that is what they call it), I called it the first proof,  very soon. Then, the second proof, and then, a book is created.

These next two proofs, If corrections are needed, will cost 25 $ to open it up to corrections, and 2 $ per correction thereafter. I have kept the original corrected one, to verify it all. I spell checked it quite a bit, so I expect this should be fairly fast. I hope.

Well, that is what is happening on the book front as of late. I had not the inspiration to write, as Part 3 is collecting dust on the shelf. Part 4 is far from my mind, for now. I am taking a little break, as everyone needs a break, now and then. Have a good afternoon,  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"
