My New ranking from Amazon!!!

My new rank out of the millions of books out there, 1 million rank! It dropped like crazy in the past few days. It just goes to show, you have to have consistent sales to keep the number high. This is really fascinating. As the number was 500 000, just a few days ago. What a difference does 3 days make!

A funny thing did happen yesterday on the Amazon Blogs. While in one blog, I pasted my link to my book, and a small blurb about it. Then, one of the blog moderators come around and said "What you are doing is spam! It is damn wrong, what you are doing. This is not the place for that". The spiel was much longer than that, actually. Ok, so here is the thing. I am in a forum that promotes authors stuff. I could not care less, if I was in a different topic of discussion, and placed my book up there ( a small link to look at), for all peoples of the grand world to see. It is not as if I put it up there, one after the other in second sequential sequences. I put up one message, and leave it there for the day!  I later responded, "Fried Spam with Maple Syrup is Delicious! But I did thank him in the end for the comments".  I did not get any answer back after that one, when I looked this morning. It is hard being an author, because you got to be kind to everyone ;)  Even the p-----heads.

Christmas is coming. The geese are getting fat. Please put a penny in the old mans hat. My dad always told me that, when playing his violin and drinking his normal pint of beer. I did no shopping as of yet. I will save it for after the snow blizzard we are having today. It is exposed to snow 10 to 15 cm today, or 5 inches approximately.

I cannot believe, 5 days and this blog will be as a mist on the shore. No more.. Wooosh...

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"
