"Supermarket Dominium" printed off

I printed off Part 3 of my series. It will be near a 260 page satire book! Same format as the first two.

My book cover has changed in my mind already. I was hoping to make it funny, as to entail elements of its inner pages into the cover. I realized that Part 1 was good, but it did not really contain anything humorous on its cover. Part 2 was humorous a bit, but hardly. Just two clowns battling it out on the front page, in the Supermarket aisles with two long french bread sticks as swords in their hands, was the main focus on the page. The seriousness of the lightening and the evil protruding eyes on the cover, probably led it to be more of a drama than a comedy style of book.

I will try a few different things on the front. Perhaps a spy sort of atmosphere. Perhaps a scene from the book, or maybe many scenes tossed onto the books cover.

A person who called me today offered to do the editing service for less money than my current publisher. He said he was going to give me a deal, and that he would like to have a "Credit" at the front of the book for his services which include grammar, spelling, and just to check for flow.

I am all for giving credit to the editor, in order to give him some possible future business from other authors. If the book succeeds or fails, it sometimes is not the fault of the editor. It has everything to do, I believe with the ideas and thoughts, genre or style, of the author. The editor has to do a truly terrible job at what he does to make a book fail. Just the fact that the author does 3 or more drafts of his material, spell checks it several times, before handing it over to an editor says allot in itself just about the quality of any book.

If the publisher can put his logo on my book, should the editor have a credit as well?  That is the thought of the 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"
