Blog is frozen in time.

Yes, my blog is frozen in time. I was away for awhile, as thoughts were running through my head. As an author, this is my situation as it now stands.

1600 plus followers on twitter. 55 approx. people to read my book on Goodreads. Over 5000 hits on E blogger. I could have had more, but I fell off the wagon.

I just lost my drive, in the summer heat, to continue the pace. Even on twitter, my progression has stalled to somewhat of a slower pace of advertising, albeit, smarter...

I realized, perhaps, that my strategy has been going the wrong way to selling my books for the longest time. It takes, reviews, to get things done. Reviews mean, everything. Am I wrong in thinking this way?  I made major mistakes with my first book, in not getting reviews for it. It put me back, by miles, in getting myself established.

To be quite honest, now I am just waiting for some reviews to reel in. If they are good, then, I continue my voyage in writing. If they are even middle of the road, I may continue. As, even middle of the road reviews, could mean my writing could improve over time with a little help and patience. Right now, I have at my disposal, many reviews to come in. It is just going to take time, to get them on the radar. Some people have several hundred books ahead of mine, to read. But, a few are reading it, right now.. So it appears, I will have some news this week on their reviews..

Have a good evening, 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"
