2nd pass is in! Last stage to print!

2nd pass has been returned to me, for Part 3. This is the last chance to make corrections. Alterations, but of course with a cost to me. Once again, a 25 dollar charge to open it up, and a 2 dollar charge for each correction. In the first pass, I had to pay to get a few errors fixed up.

This second pass I will re check, reread, to verify if most of everything is alright. Then I expect my cover, website, should be done within due time accordingly.

I have not been on here that much, as things are pretty much winding down. I really had not much to talk about, as the book business has been relatively slow for this cat.

My contest has approximately 400 contestants, as compared to 13000 for Dan Browns Inferno. Wow. What a difference! On the same site, and even with his contest of being of a lesser duration than mine.

I am pleased at my results, even though I am still average in the book contest rankings. This Part 3 did do much better than Part 2 and Part 1 combined, although Part 1, as I have said earlier, did not even get a chance to have a contest. I just did not know about the process at that time. And, am still new to the game.

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"
