67 people now on my Giveaway!

I am happy to see 67 people have thus far joined for my Goodreads Giveaway contest! I generally gain 3 more people a day, and that is good for a book that has absolutely no marketing budget. Thankfully there are places in social networks, such as goodreads, to spread the word out somewhat.

I was close to advertising on radio in the USA, which never happened. Same as newspaper, or the old style advertising. I am truly unsure you will obtain allot of sales throughout these methods. I have heard not many, so if the proof is not there to support, then I cannot enter in such high risk actions.

Contests are the best way to bring out attention to your product. I do believe advertising, on Amazon or Barnes, maybe a good way to spend your money too. But, there is no guarantees. I know I did not try the banner thing on those sites. Goodreads also offers advertising as well, which could be my next alternative. I think that that kind of advertising among people who have the same common interests (Books) work better than mass media advertising. That is just my opinion. Maybe a greater salesman can prove me wrong.

I used to believe I could sell anything. I know anything in my yard, from my second hand cars, to my bikes, ect, usually flew off the lot in the first few days of putting the for sale sign up. This book business, is indeed, challenging.

I also offered to give a kindle version book to a reviewer. This was one fantastic time, to finally get that much needed review for my book. The only problem is, the publisher say they can't do it that way. I would have paid for the kindle book at the publisher, to have it sent direct through to her e mail address. Maybe I am missing something here. Maybe, the book is actually located on the Amazon server, not on theirs. Interesting. I will have to probe deeper...  Have a good 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…
