2 hours of work for mailing winning books!

It took me approximately 2 hrs to get set up to mail out the winning contestants books. First, just to find the mailing envelopes. They were in the house, somewhere. Big, bulky, bubble style envelopes. Then, to get the printer set up for to print off the winning addresses. My printer was in the other room. After, getting a small thank you letter ready, to be sent to each winner. And, a few postcards to boot, in each envelope. Postcards of my book.

Tomorrow, at the post office, depending how busy they are, it should go through within a half hour or less. The 3 going to Canadian cities, should be very fast. The others, 7 to the USA, will take time in filling out those small sticky forms, and then declare what is inside and the value of such.

I am glad the contest went well. I cannot do one on Part 1, as the Goodreads application form online just allows giveaways for current books or new releases. Part 1, is now, a senior citizen.

I hope you all have a good day, as I will think of having another contest with Part 2, perhaps again before it gets a year old.. 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"
