Worked on "Supermarket Dominium" today!

The first few pages of my Part 3 of "The Supermarket Guy" series bothered me for a good while. I found the entrance to the story quite a bit dull. I spiced it up today, rearranged a bit of the dialogue between one of the main characters and the extra, and it is way more better tuned towards where it should be. A second, third, reading will get things on track better.

Being very busy as of late, not much time to go over the rest. I had only the time to go over the first 10 pages, and probably added a page in writings. If time permits, I will try to do more tomorrow. I would like to draw the cover page of Part III and put it on here. That maybe the next step.

To do an E book for me, was a difficult decision. It meant no paperback version this year, as sales did not trumpet its arrival of the two past versions. I could not continue to churn out books that could not cover the tremendous cost of the whole package. It may take several years to recoup the costs, if the books are not forgotten.

The E books cost significantly less to produce, with some sites offering in the 100s of dollars to others free. It is good to choose a site where you can keep your rights to your material, and offer the maximum exposure.

I am not sure where to go yet. There is Book Baby, Amazon Kindle Direct, Smashwords, Lulu, and Book tango to name a few. It is hard to decide, as each site has their own different applications, rules, and exposure limits.

I will continue to check them out, if time permits... For now, drawing the cover or Part 3.

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"
