The Supermarket Guy 1 is still all over the world.

Part 1, of The Supermarket Guy, is still all over the world. I check every so many times, to see where it is at. It is still at Saxo, Mighty Ape, de ca com uk fr jp, india books, Barnes and Nobles, Chapters Indigo, all over the world. I did not mention, all of the distributors like WHsmith, Foyles, Berkelouw, and many more...

I was told from the Publisher, that they did not call these companies (exception with Barnes and Amazon) to distribute the book through the others. They approach my publisher, and take certain books to display on their web pages. I consider myself lucky, that my book has gone to Croatia, England, Italy, China, Australia and New Zealand, to name a few of the many. I am unsure how long the book will remain on their sites, as I am unsure of how well it will sell. But, I imagine a few 100 kilobytes of a page amongst hundreds of thousands does not really matter much to them. It is all a big ocean of books, and someday, someone will buy one. It all adds up, to a big fish in the end. Right?

And, to have a great bookstore, a really great bookstore, would'nt you want your store to have largest amount of books out there on the market today? Just like Amazon, or Barnes, or Indigo. And if not, try to pick the ones with the nice covers, the great stories, that truly appeal to the masses.

I was going to draw out the cover for Part 3, in a little while from now. An atomic bomb going off on the cover,  or is that a little too much.. A large amount of light. Oh yes, I can see it now!!! It is addictive, this book creating thing that I got going here now. I may draw out the cover, maybe in the next few days. I need to hone in on my drawing skills.

On the twitter front, I consider myself lucky to have amassed 840 followers. People from all, very interesting backgrounds and hobbies.  My tweet to follower ratio is very poor, might I add. 3800 tweets to 840 followers. Some people hardly tweet, and have more followers than their tweets. How do they do it?

Besides that, T- minus 8 days till liftoff of Part 2: Rise of the Market Overlord... The Rise is coming!!! 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"
