less than a month and a half until Part 3 is released.

The other day at work, a few fine gentlemen asked me how the book business was going. I honestly told them that a Part 4 was more than likely not in the works.That up to this point, Part 3 has been ringing up business in the giveaway contest that I had placed it in, but not as much as other books in the same realm and in the least amount of time.  Another guy said he would like to have a copy of Part 3.

This obviously tells me a few things, early on in the onset. First, that several books were getting higher views than mine within a months time. Do not get me wrong, there are several books below mine in contest attendance. Which is the number I am gauging. Dan Browns new release, Inferno, has approximately 10000 or more sign ups to win his book. Mine at this time was approximately 350 sign ups. Of course,  he is a big name in the book world. That is to be expected. But I was hoping for to reach at least a thousand in sign ups.

There is nothing spectacular happening with the registered contest attendance per book so far. I am still in the middle of the pack, and this suggests that my book will just be an average one once again.

This leads much doubt into my production of Part 4.  It may end with Part 3, and that is as far as it will go. But yet much satisfied with the outcome of the series, as Part 3 truly capped it off personally for me in a good way.  Yet in Part 3, there is room for a Part 4. I put it in there specifically for that, and surrender is never truly on a writers mind.

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"
