7 Days until my Contest is over!

Less than 7 days to go, and my Goodreads Global Giveaway will be over.

Already, 344 people have signed up to win a free, autographed copy of my book. It will be interesting if it beats the total of 407 approx. people who signed up for my past giveaway.

The first giveaway was not truly global as the last, having only the USA and Canada at the time.

I also find that the amount of people joining the giveaway gets to be more and more each day, as it crawls its way to the front page of the giveaways that are nearly done. I remember the last few days of the first giveaway, gave me 80 or so people in one day to join the giveaway.

After this, I am truly unsure what to do. I will take a short break from the giveaways. I need to muster my energy to try to get people to review it. I think the bad side of the giveaways, are allot of inaction. People are not going to read your book, as long as it is in a giveaway. This is natural. They are waiting to win the book, in order to read it, which takes a month or so to end. This takes allot of time, to get reviews.

Besides that, things have been quiet for me in the book world. 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"
