My friends did not know about my books..

A close friend of mine, whom I graduated with, had no knowledge of my books!

His daughter is in her late teens, she knew nothing about my books!  I gave him a free one, the first one of the series, and she smiled as she said she would read it right away. She loves reading books, and said it would not take her long to get through it. They were from Ontario, over a thousand kilometers away. I probably never seen him in 5 or more years.

My books are all easy reading, and not complicated in matter. They are truly enjoyable, easy reading books. Humor books.

It just goes to point out again,  how E Blogging for 2 years now, tweeting, and now even resorting to Facebooking, how social media truly does not work.

I must admit.  Social media, does not work! At least, not for someone who does not know the ins and outs of it all.

Very interesting... Word of mouth has not traveled that far for this cat.. Oh well. We will see how it goes in the next little while..

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"
