Goodreads contest, one day to go!

One day left on my Goodreads Contest!  260 people signed up for to win a book! This is actually, better results than I had expected. I had expected around 150 contestants, so this is a very good result. Mind you, I did not get the thousands that some big titles garner, where only one copy can be won. I offered 10, in my contest wowo. I truly need to thank all of the contestants that have applied.

I am really happy, with the 260 number. Tomorrow, it will be a little higher, and with it being on the "The Contest nearly over" front page tab, it will get even more exposure on its last day on the viewing screen. I have also 3 friends who wish to read it, and approximately 18 people that said they had it on their read lists. This is totally, good news, from a book that was at zero interest for a long, long, time...

I talked to a friend at work the other day, and asked if they seriously liked my book. Once again, they said overwhelmingly, Yes! I said, you are just saying that to make me write more books, as I gave out a laugh. They all laughed at me too, honestly saying, No, we really liked your book... Alright, so I was not set up to publish Part 2  ; )

Have a good night, 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"
