Spell checked Part 3 again last night

Part 3 spell checked again last night. I found allot of double spacing, and even a few more minor mistakes. This is probably why it is so important, even after going through the 3rd draft, to have it edited.

The thing I hate the most, is trying to get all of the parentheses and commas, periods after it, sorted out. I think allot of works have different templates for the periods, commas, and work around the parenthesis. I usually leave that to the editing department to strongly sort that out, and usually it was with the publisher.

This document is 68 800 words. It is larger than my other two works. I e mailed my publisher the other day about it, and saying how ready I was to go ahead with publishing it. They are quite interested, of course, and may or may not cut me a deal on the publishing part of it. If I decide to go with them again, it will be the third time.

And, it is quite pleasant after doing the first one. The nerves are not as bad as the first publication. There was worry, about what I was missing in the whole scheme of things. What did I have to do? Was I forgetting something. Part 2 was quite effortless, and I did not torment the publishing people hardly at all, as with the first work. Asking allot of questions, keeping them on the move. Part 2, the questions were very scarce. Part 3, probably even more scarce. I worked with a good crew at the old place of publication. Very nice people.

If I would go with an E Book publisher, it is only because I want to save money. Something that I feel I should be doing. Only thing some companies will keep your electronic copy forever, in order to satisfy customers that had problems with their copies. Even if you leave them. Interesting. Not sure what I think of that. I find every company you deal with, have little bonuses and some things that are left out. Some companies can produce a Kindle, but not a Kobo version, ect, ect.

This weekend I relax, leave the book sit till Monday. 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"
