3 days until my Goodreads Giveaway is History!

I have now 188 people signed up to win a free copy of "The Supermarket Guy 2: Rise of the Market Overlord".  This so far has resulted in 12 people placing it on their read list, and 3 of my friends picking up the book. Not to mention, gaining a few friends on Goodreads in the process.

This is compared to gaining 140 friends on Goodreads with the first book, and gaining 6 friends who offered to read my book- No contest with the first book, something I should have done.

I must be frank, that my contest did not garner a huge sign up tally. Popular books with similar time spans, come out with a thousand or so contestants, while giving away one book. I would say the medium to popular range is from a 400 tally to upwards to a thousand.

Being around where my book has finished, I would have to admit that it is not in the popular genre, of where the thrillers and romances, sci fi are.  But, the contest did help. It helped allot, as I would still be stuck on first base if not for it at all.

I think I must get onto the terror or horror scene of writing. Maybe my next series, will be a thriller. Why not,  maybe I can write that stuff too.  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"
