3rd revision sent back. Off to the presses.

3 rd revision sent back. It appears the errors that were still true and blue, are now erased and clear. When the hard copy arrives, I will still read through it again and make sure it is of high quality. I do not care if I have to stop the printing presses, and recall the book to make changes again.

It should be good, as the errors that they missed and that I had created during some changes in sentence work that I had made, have been fixed. It is always good to get a second reader, to read through it again and again in order to ensure there are no errors that exist.

Thing is that I am alone. No one in my family lives close by, and the ones that do live close by are probably not interested in reading that much to do a recheck on my work. Everyone got different interests, and I do not blame them. Then there is the reliability factor. It could take them a month to read it. Then there is the busy factor. Everyone is busy these days.

The editing done by my publishing company did iron out allot of the problems I had with grammar and spelling, for that matter. But I still made changes to the text myself, to make things flow a little better.

As I had said before, I could continue to add humor, pages and pages of it. If I continue to open it up, it could have even had a different ending. I was thinking of offering a different ending.. But, it has to go into a certain direction. Part 4, if I am lucky enough to create such a thing, needed the book to end in a certain way. Maybe someday I will be privileged enough to reveal the 2nd ending I had in mind for Part 3. I guess a Part 4 could have used that ending as well. I would have just had to change the beginning of Part 4, to make sure it all meshed together.. Wikipedia tells us that even Charles Dickens with his 1960s novel 'Great Expectations', had alternate endings... That two versions of the book were printed...

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"
