Halloween has passed

Frightful Halloween has passed. There were a few ghosts and goblins out and about, knocking on the door for treats. Pretty tame bunch. Princesses, Bob Spongepants and a lion. All in the foggy, wet weather we got this week. No sun seems to put everybody down in the dumps. It has been raining and foggy here since this past Sunday.

It took me way back to when I was a trick or treating. The best treat was a can of pop. Only one house would give it out, and every year, that was where we would get that different thing from a chip, bar, or candy. Peanuts were alright too. There was a place where we were given bananas.

Bananas? On Halloween night. Our sugary and salt cravings caused us never to go back there, but now I sit back and realize the potassium I missed out on during my younger days. I was dressed as carrot man. maybe that had something to do with the healthy treat at this one home.

Besides that, nothing new on the book front. I sent out a few queries for some reviews, but no answers back yet. Reviewers are very busy people. I put in the e mail that I would like to get these reviews done before Christmas. I am assuming they are too backlogged to meet my review criteria. I will find somebody, someday to take another read at my book!

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"
