News on the book front.

"The Rise of the Market Overlord" Part 2, of The Supermarket Guy, has actually 3 days more of work added to its release date to Barnes&Noble, and I was saying around 7 days today, now it is approximately 10 to the release.

I e mailed again, to find out if the release was close to my countdown. It was, but I was off quite a bit on that, as the dates are nixed as to when things move. In 7 days, the online retailers above will get the information that the book is ready for sale. But, it could take approximately 3 days for them to design it to their sites, into their search engine and set up. The press release must be, on the time it is available to the distributors.

I think my website will be the same, with just a tab to click to the "Market Overlord" site. I had an e mail back from the designers, and they asked again what I had planned to do. Just to keep the original site, and add a tab to direct towards the synopsis of Part 2. And, maybe just place the cover of Part 2 in a side window on the front page as well. Maybe the cover of the book could be the link itself...

I may have to telephone them, to see if they got my instructions alright. Through e mail, is still not the same as being right there in the production room, seeing how things are going. I wish it was, right next door to me, so I could jot over to explain and watch them work at the design of the website. Maybe I could have been a web designer too... There is still time...  My website is down, as we speak, due to the construction. Then again, when I made the cover for Part 2, I had a gut feeling that it should have sold just by its cover alone. I had a gut feeling, that the book, would sell very well. My gut feelings have, proven me hungry. Shown me personally, that I am totally off the main stream, somehow.

Possibly, Part 2 may cause the resurgence I need, to keep things afloat. I have the gut feeling about the cover. I have the gut feeling again, about the main body of the book. Definitely, entertaining. Definitely, off of the wall. Soon, I will see if my gut is empty again...

Have a good day, 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"
