Received my 40 books today.

I received my 40 books today. 30 of Part 2, and 10 of Part 1.

Part 2, was astounding. For myself, the cover looked, well. My opinion, super! I am trying not to be biased, but I find it looked great. I turned to the title page, where the error was still there. "Rise of the Market Overload". Overlord should be there, instead of Overload.

I immediately called the publisher. There, they said it is because the order went out before the correction was made. I did, make a correction for this problem, a week ago approximately.

I maybe the only one, with the 30 books with this error in it. Then again, it was showcased on Amazon and Barnes for a good while. Maybe, some people out there have the error as well.

This is a good thing, maybe, for book collectors. I talked to a woman at the local bookstore today. She said she heard stories of numerous authors, where the spell check went past several words that were not exposed to be where they were. Such as my own, Overload.. Which is a correct spelling of the word. Then, Overlord, which is the word that should be on the title cover page. Even pens, that were sent to her to sell, could not be sold due to a mistake in a big publishers title name on them. So, this stuff does happen.

The thing is afterwards, do they become collectors items. Do they go antiquarian? I am not sure, as I am not a great expert in this field. But, it is all a possibility over time. If some people did get the book with the error in it, maybe in 20 or 30 years the value could be high, just on those first printed error copies. Maybe it could be worth 30 dollars, or a few hundred, to a thousand.

I got 30 of them. Surely, no one would want them. Maybe. I will think of what to do with them, later on. This is all so, very confusing, yet interesting..

My five free books from the publisher, should be coming in 7 days. These, should be the normal, market ones, without the title page error. I hope so...

Have a great 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"
