Contest is over.

The Contest is over. I had two winners, from Ottawa, Ontario, and California USA.

I had over 200 hits on my site, mostly from the USA. Second, Canada, then Moscow.

The people who hit, could have just e mailed me, and they would have won a book. I will check in the near future, for another contest, as this one was... how do I put it. Lackluster, ho hum.

I am not sure, if the problem was with:

1. The requirement of checking out the website, and commenting on a cover, then having to name the largest grocer in a country.

2. 200 hits on my site, maybe not enough. I would have had to get over 3000 hits, to get rid of my free books!

3. Twitter is not as good as it is. I went directly through twitter, to get to my contest base. If this is the case, you really need to advertise again and again and, again.

4. Time frame was not sufficient. I know, now, probably that it was too short. But, when you are new at this, you have to be careful as not to get too many e mails in the box. This is a learning curve, for me.

Thanks to Sean from Ottawa who won a book tonight! And, my good friend lawyer from California who won a book tonight..

Till next time, never give up on those contests that seem, so impossible.. 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"
