Goodreads giveaway news!

Just in a little over one day, I went from 260 contestants to a current 345! That is really incredible, how perhaps, a first page viewing on the giveaway page can do for your numbers. I am really taken aback.

So in retrospect, I got over 85 contestants in a period of 30 hours. That is the best that my contest, has ever done, period. I did not go out to advertise heavily on twitter, but I did put in the odd ad here and there. My advertising on twitter has gone down, dramatically, as I focus my advertising more on the contest itself.

I may do a contest on Part 1, if Goodreads will let me do it. I should have done a contest on Part 1, last year when it was first released. My mistake, and it did actually affect, everything I have done up till this point. It led me down some different directions, in thinking about the business, that I did not have to take. I have even stopped writing, and let allot of things go in the book writing world.

I did not truly expect to get over 150 or so contestants, but 345 is a blast! Thanks again to all who entered in the contest to win. 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"
