Reviewing the errors.

Subtract one error from below, from the start, as it appeared ok in the end. The other 8 errors found eventually turned into 6 errors. When I went to print off one page, the window pane actually turned into windowpane in a straight printout. It looked warped on the screen, and that was all.

Another is where I had a character asking a question to a person that I thought was the wrong person to ask it to. It appeared in the dialogue that it was alright there, that the main character was actually asking this person to verify something from something said beforehand. Scratch another error.

The other six were things like was discussed below. 'The' for a 'they',  'it' for an 'I',  things that boggled me on how it got past my readings. There were 3 errors that seemingly got past the editor as well.

Now I am awaiting the response from the publisher, to see if they got the scans and that everything is ok. I highlighted the words that were not exposed to be there, and then wrote in the corrections to the side.

The copy should be good now. They will send me it a second time, to go over the last corrections.

Waiting for the second proof.. 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"
