Giveaway books have arrived in the USA.

I have gotten word that one of my Giveaway Books has landed in Knoxville, Tennessee. This is exactly one week from mailing from Canada, Tuesday to Tuesday through airmail. I am assuming most of my winners have gotten their books by now.

One lady is going to read it right away, and seems to be pretty excited about it. I will be excited to see her review, as I had not seen a review in a good while.  It seems my momentum has stalled again. There is "no chain reaction" effect to be had, an effect we as artists always hope not to see.

Chain reaction effect is where one guy passes on the news of the book to the next guy, and the next gal, and so on and so forth. I did not catch the tide? Maybe there was a reason for it. Poor marketing skills do stand out.

On the other hand, hopefully it is not due to how bad the book is to the general public. You always think in the back of your mind, that it just did not break the "Got to have" barrier. We see it with popular products like an I phone, Camaro, or a Katy Perry song, that always breaks the "got to have barriers".

Enough reviews are there now, to tell me for the instant that the book was good. Neighbors giving me support as well. Nothing I can do. It is out of my hands now, and into the hands of the Internet audiences. Give me some reviews, and maybe Part 3 may come to the living...

Have a great 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"
