3 rd revision has been sent to me.

The third revision has been sent to me again. I had looked over the revised corrections, and everything looks up to snuff... So far....

I will reread tonight, and tomorrow, for a third and final check. If I find more errors, they will e mail me back the body text again, and I will have to read it all through once again.

Even though I find my story very entertaining, there is only so much of rereading of your own material time and time again, you can stand. Just that every time I go through it, I could probably still add some humor and material here and there, thereby making the book even more attractive. Perhaps I should have waited another 6 months before releasing it.

I probably read through that text ten or more times now. This is the most grueling process that any author must go through. You must ensure that the product is very good, and unfortunately enough, spell checking does not completely do the job.

With Part 1, I had the same process to go through. I made corrections in the body at the 1st and second passes. Part 2 was the worst. It had two major errors in it just as it was published. I could not believe I had missed those two errors, and had to delay its sales by a few weeks time, in just taking the book off of the shelves for that little bit of time. Yet, that Part 2 version, if anyone by luck has it, the book is antiquarian in nature due to its small mistakes. I am trying to ensure Part 3 does not have to be recalled once published, for anything.

Well, time to go... Start reading this stuff, again... Could be worse, I could be reading the mathematicians journal to derivatives over 10 times..

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"
