60 % done of third draft.

Today I did a bit more progress on Part 3. 60 % done on the final draft.

Still allot of work to do, but am getting there. Now on time off, I will expect to be done this draft within two to three days. That will take me into the weekend.

Then the editing decision. Who will do it. Not sure. Looking to reduce costs. Just do an E Book? Maybe forget about the editing all together. I did the editing. Would you mind a few errors in the text, at a super price of a few bucks for a humor book of approximately 270 to 280 pages?

Thing is, I find that even some E Book publishers want to set the electronic books at a high price. Not necessarily my doing, but that is the way it is all geared. I did try to reduce my E books to a much lower price, but that is as far as I could go as everyone wants a slice off of the work. 3.99 for each book, of the first parts of the series, is just the price of a Starbucks!

Have to continue correcting. Actually found some hard fought time tonight.

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"
