More studying of the Goodreads Giveaways!

I looked at similar contests for bigger name books, that just outpaced my own in contestants to win a free book.

Most of them have over a 100 contestants to 400 contestants, and only give away one free copy or up to 5. The huge majority of the lot. Although, probably one or two per page give 10 or 30 books away per contest.

This is analyzing the time frames on the first two pages, which blow my book away also, for the same time period. I have now 43 contestants to win 10 books, and it is rare but I did find a few other books with below 43 contestants.

It is interesting also, how allot of these contests take place with the release date in September. I did not know, you could start a contest before the book was even published. This can give an author a big push, to the front starting gate as well. Something, I was in the dark about.

Important reviews, discussion on your book, can come about with these contests. I wish I would have been more ready, with Part 1 than I was with Part 2. 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…
