Friend said they would advertise on Facebook.

Friend of mine last night, said they would advertise on Facebook for me. Some of my friends who have Facebook, do have approximately 400 friends. Hopefully, it will create an exponential effect. Where, this advertisement will go and create a chain, and create another advertisement, and continue on down until the ends of the earth. Wherever that maybe. I guess it is, maybe since the earth is round, from where we start.. Hum.. As every book author would like to achieve, is the chain effect.  It is a difficult thing to spark up. Without huge advertising dollars, I am unsure if it can be attained.

I did opt for twitter over Facebook for my social media outlet. I liked twitters fast format, and easy controls. Although, some things can be improved over time (Checking through lists, making family lists of followers, star lists, and country lists ect). How to know when a follower has dropped you, so you can decide to unfollow them. Maybe it is there already, and I just do not know how to use theses features which are hidden from me.

So far on twitter, I have over 800 followers. This is over a time span of 3 months, approx. I can attest, that my sales did not improve over this point, from what they were in the fall. I am unsure, if it does help any at all. Maybe when a person reaches 10000 followers, 50 thousand, or a 100 thousand? Maybe things can change. I will continue to advertise on there, as time moves on. I will not give up so soon.

The other day, the owner of the local bookstore here asked why I did not get a book review. She says that strangers do come in and buy the book. True enough, a book review does help sell a book. On the  minus side, I cannot ask my friends to do one for me. It is exposed to be done by a someone that does not know me. And, everywhere you go, the reviewers have allot of books on their plate already. Literally, 100s. And, if it is Print on Demand, they will give you a backseat. Some, (I should say most) will not take the time to review you. Unless, you are backed by a traditional publisher. Many websites do say, you should not have to pay for a review. I do believe in that also.

Besides that, I will be getting news on the "Rise of the Market Overlord" ETA today. When will Part 2 be on the market. Rise of The Market Overlord. I love the title... It is cloudy and overcast here today, 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"
