Found a crib that was real wood in Moncton

Real wood, with no smelly paint. Finally found a crib in Moncton, NB that was from AP furniture. Young America had cribs for sale as well. These cribs ranged in price from 1000 to 1400. It was nice to find one without any smell, and made out of real wood.

Allot of cribs are made out of press wood, that can give off fumes for a good while. I would not worry if you buy your crib early, and the smell will pass off its chemicals over a few months time. Even so, I know what everyone else is thinking, and I can reason well with people who do not go for natural products. It is a rare low % rate that a babies growth or development will be affected by the scent of a crib. True enough, there are plenty of harmful toxins all around us, and some of it is invisible.

I believe we can handle a certain amount of these toxins, as long as we are not over exposed. Just that our crib, for some reason or other, smelled strong. I am not sure if it was the color of the varnish, or if it was the country it was produced (outside of the USA and Canada), but the smell eventually enveloped the room within a day or so. A rep said it would take maybe 6 months for the smell to air out.

Well, back to the book business. I get e mails from my publisher on tips on what to do next, such as radio advertising, and such. Book signings. Seminars. Hum. Around here?  Not very likely. Too small of an area. No doubt if I lived in NYC, things would be easier. Not for this cat.

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"
