Book business stagnant the last little while.

No news on the book front so far. Only good news is that I have 132 people saying they will read my Part 3 on Goodreads. This was up from only 10 or so for Part 1 and with 80 or so for Part 2. Now Part 3 is on the back pages as this giveaway is old, and the hits are getting less and less over time. It will only rebound once the giveaway is nearly over, which will appear on a front page of the site later on.

Problem is, that many of these people have 100s, or at least a thousand books ahead of mine for reading. They will get to my book in a few years. It takes a long time, to get some reviews.

I may work on part 4 of "The Supermarket Guy" in the next few weeks, but it all depends on how much work is involved in going through Part 3, checking for errors again and what not in the first proof.

If sales do not occur for Part 3,  I will have to maybe get into a different business of sorts. The self publishing business is harsh, and only a few books of the many break out and do very well.

The good news is that I will not rest. I will try some different tasks in the near future, and expand out my horizons. I may take up a different hobby too, as I have an new guitar here in a closet somewhere...

Oh, and the bean pods have arrived in Northern New Brunswick. I picked a good 10 lbs, and we cooked quite a bit of them today. Drizzled with salt, butter, with garlic honey chicken on the side... The bean pods are doing very well in this part of the planet....

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"
