2nd Pass sent back.

2nd pass has been sent back. Two errors that were not corrected,  that I had to resend to get fixed. Then, I made two changes to the text. This definitely makes more humor, just by adding these two little shots of humor instilled in the text.

First, I was worried that a name I had used was actually a real life famous person. Just by coincidence, of course, but I removed it just in case.

Then, I elaborated on a sentence to create a much more deeper effect in one of the paragraphs in the beginning on page 3, when Mr. Acadou talks to another character in the book. It adds a little enlightenment, so to speak.

Besides that, the two errors that were missed by the publishing house happens very rarely, and it is a good thing to go through it again.

When I get the paperback version, I will read it front to cover again. The published version may contain very few errors, but I will recheck to be sure.

I know I read books from traditional houses, where I could see errors in the text as well. Very very few, but it appeared to be an odd one here and there.

Now the book should be headed towards the presses. Less than a month and a few days left to go...

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"
