Boxing day specials!

I know many will be hitting the malls today, to get to those boxing day specials. I will be taking a tour to see just how busy it really is in this neck of the woods. You would think, everyone would be shopped out just before Christmas! But, if you can save 40 % on some brand name items, it produces a frenzy to get to the shopping malls!

Personally, I am not geared to get up that early, to get in the line ups to rush for the savings. I did go once, to a locals retailers 50 % off event. This was not a boxing day event, that I can think of. But, the line ups around the specials, were huge. People grabbing stuff. One lady had a package in her hand, just to be snatched up by some other guy. I found that was a little too much. And when I went for stuff that I really wanted, allot of the cupboards were bare. I should have gotten up earlier.  Way earlier. Maybe tent outside?

I hope this year the boxing day event goes well, and everyone respects each other in the malls. No pushing, jostling, or grabbing the football from the opposite team.

It is, the holidays, afterall.. Till next time.. No news on the book!

* Quick note, as I went through our local town, everything was closed on Boxing Day! Only McDonalds, and some gas stations, a few convenience stores were open. These next 3 days are probably the boxing week sales days, starting now around this area!

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"
