210 friends on Goodreads now!

I decided to up my Goodreads friend count. I have been steady at approximately 160 for a few years now. I see that many people have several hundred or thousands of friends on Goodreads.

Goodreads is the best format I have ever been on for a social networking site. I find it very easy to use, unlike facebook, and even has great features that twitter does not have.

It is probably because I am biased about the book thing, and that you can discuss and rate books there and even have discussions on a wide array of topics.

If you ever read one book, you should join Goodreads. You can rate it, give it a star rating, and even go to win free books on their giveaways.

I will be having a giveaway there in the not so distant future, if all goes well. I am predicting the start date for the end of July right until the end of October.

Besides that we finally got some beautiful weather here in Northern NB. It has been a great past week of hot weather. Whoever chose their vacation time last week, did not lose out.

Time to go, no other news on the book front. 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"
