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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
