Had a book sale the other day.

Whoa! A book sale the other day. From off of my website. Part 1 still does better than Part 2. Fascinating. I still do not understand this conundrum.

Part 1 is approximately over a year and a half old. Part 2 is now 6 months old. Part 2 has more intense fight scenes, a more competitive edge to it. Part 1 has more to deal with some fate, as things unravel over time. It also takes the characters connections in life and brings his situation into full view. Maybe that is why it is more successful than the first.

Updates on twitter, is that now I have approximately 2473 followers. This is without directly or first initially  following that many people on the site. I found i did pretty good, without using any programs to gather people to my twitter page. This is for approximately a time frame of 7 to 8 month period.

I have heard out there that you would need approximately 100 000 followers to make a 1 % dent in sales. That is, if you are a celebrity. I am going to keep an eye on that one. See if I can make a new norm.

Have a great day, 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"
