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…

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"
