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…

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…
