Contest results last night for Twitter..

These are the contest results last night, from Twitter.

I had 250 approximate views on this site. I had only, 3 winners, out of those 250 visitors. Total available books to be won was 16. A 6 % chance in winning a book, if the views had all tried, but the e mails did not come through...

1 st winner Stephen from Boston, 2nd winner Tammy from Cleveland, 3rd winner Joshua from Tampa.. You will be all sent books through snail mail, via Canada Post soon as possible. Thanks for coming and visiting this site.

I am still unsure of the low turnout, to win a book. Maybe they figure there will be to many entries, and they will not win anything, so why try? It is very interesting, as if I cannot give away a free book, how will I be able to sell my books at all... This makes me feel that Twitter is still weak when it comes to doing advertising.

But, I have only 1100 followers. Maybe when I get up to the tens of thousands, maybe twitter will work better for my advertising. But for now, i am unsure of its importance into getting your message out, when you are selling something.

Out of half or over half of those followers, are probably trying to sell a product that they want to sell too. Websites, authors, political, religious, sales pitches. Very interesting indeed.

I do often retweet good tweets, when I receive them. I am starting to favorite some tweets. I only hope I can get better, and find the best channels to advertise in. There are some channels that maybe are, too fast. Where, there is so much traffic your ads do not stay in the top slot for very long. maybe a few seconds. This is probably the other problem, that you have to keep advertising many times over to get your message across. But, if you can find a channel where there is a span of 5 to 10 minutes before your tweet gets bounced from the top, you can do pretty well. More people will actually probably, see it, and you may get more of a lasting reaction.

Today, not much news on the book front. Amazon.UK had run out of my new release, so it seemed. I do not know the reason why, but I will check again to see if they are restocked. They had only one seller on Amazon.UK for a used copy of my Part 2. This is very interesting. Maybe the Antiquarian people, got to those books as there was an error on the paper title page. I seen the other day that they did have a new book from a listed book vendor on Amazon.UK, but none new offered by Amazon.

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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
