Book cover is in. Approved, to go.

The book cover came in from the publisher. They done a very good job, and put my name on the bottom of the cover, with the main logo on the top right of the back of the book, this time.  The first book had the main logo on the bottom back of the book.

On the back cover, a brief summary of the book. An author always hopes he hits the right cord, with the audience. I was hoping this was the case, as in Part 1. I sometimes feel I do not describe enough of what is in the book, or talk about the right elements, but a summary should be just a brief spiel about leading up to the main lingering problem in the book. Including some problems/ good times associated with it. Personally, I would not go beyond that. The climax should never be given away, in my opinion in the summary. I think I did a good job at hiding the climax, in both Part 1 and Part 2 of "The Supermarket Guy".  But all authors have their own way, of doing it. Intriguing the audience, just with the mere words on the back of a book. And many of course have it down to an art. With approximately 150 works for the main points at the start and middle of the book, it is quite a skill. I am unsure if I have done a good job, until several months after the release. The public always knows best.

The last part added to the book, is probably one I could do without. The authors biography. I talked about this a short while earlier, when creating Part 2. I decided to leave it alone, for this book also. It is the hardest thing to do, to write about yourself. I do feel my biography that I wrote about myself, is corny. But, what can you do. I did not want to dwell into the affair again. For now. But, it maybe changed in the future, but right now it stays as it is. Probably boring..

Till next time... Have a good evening...

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"
