May take few days to 2 wks to get see the blog interview.

I went back to check on the interviewers blog site to see when my interview maybe posted. I read very carefully, to see that sometimes it takes in between 5 days to 2 weeks to be posted.  This is understandable, as book reviewers do review an incredible amount of material. For the book author, patience is a virtue.

Currently have 94 people signed up to win a book on Goodreads. Only 15 days left to the contest, and I will be ready to mail the signed copies away.

On twitter, I have close to 1500 followers, from just 5 months on the site. This is with 8160 tweets, and actually had some super conversations with people from mostly the USA, England, and Canada.

People at work are beginning to ask for Part 2 again. I asked this guy what he thought of Part 1, as he did not tell me beforehand. He said his wife liked it, and he found the book was great.

It seems people are too busy these days, just to even read the book. I know some people who bought my book, still have not read it at my workplace. I will have to tell them that there is a hundred dollar bill hidden in the pages, in there, somewhere...

But, there was another of my co workers who said the book was not for him. But his wife liked it. He said he liked more of a different genre of book, but he said it was alright. At least he was honest, and I respect that.

That is the way the book world works, from a publishing on demand viewpoint. You have to do social media, and it is tough at times, not to see much results. Once again, patience, is a virtue. I have logged in many hours trying to break the barriers of the wall. Trying all the while to create some sort of presence, or some sort of following, out there somewhere. Nevertheless, how tough the process is, it is still very much an interesting one. 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"
