Part 3 is in the final phases.

The second proof is soon to be done. This is what look like once printed off in the book.

If all corrections from the first proof has been done well, this should be a fairly speedy process. I should receive this second proof in a matter of a week or more.

I am surprised that I had not received the cover work yet. The book cover, I thought, usually did not take this long to get approved. It will come, but I just do not know when.

Last night, I sent in the files as a bitmap. Or bmg, not sure what you call it, but the errors did not go through. I had to use microsoft paint to change the bmg into jpeg, which was an easier format to send through the mail. Less memory storage per slide per error.  It eventually went through.

Just this alone probably cost me 10 hours in the production scheme of things. Especially when they people at the publishing house are busy as it is, and they forget to e mail me back that they had not received the file. All day I felt something was up. I tried to e mail again the message as bitmap, but then a small warning came up that it could not be sent, MB too high! So I had to change it all to jpeg. It was easy to lose this warning, as I probably got up from the computer to do some chores right after sending the first message, and did not see the warning pop up then go away rapidly as it did.

Oh well. Live and learn.. 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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
