Film agents?

Is it just me,  or is it really hard to get a literary agent interested in your work.  I have e mailed several firms, but they are all too busy to respond to my requests for information about the process.  I will not go through the list of firms I had tried, but I truly understand that they are duly busy. They do have a tight schedule to keep, and have mountains and mountains of book requests on their lists to keep them at bay for many of a year. Not an hour.

So I decided to try out film agents, for tv. This is new to me as well, but usually a literary agent firm will have film agents in their organization. That is, if they are big enough. I am currently searching for film agents, and will see how that process goes. I had e mailed one such an organization just a short while ago, but nothing come back as well.

I understand that they too, are busy, and that possibly only a handful of these books do actually make it to the realm of movie magic world. This is a long shot, even longer than getting a literary agent to represent me. Probably a one shot in a few million.

For now, I continue to advertise my books on Google. Well, mostly its giveaway for Part 3. Google has been an interesting format to deal with. I find it has nice forums, and has great capabilities that can make it even compete on a fair keel with that of Twitter or even Facebook.

Once again, what I love about Google is the revolving window thing. I wish they would enhance it, to allow us to see more when we click on a discussion window. I love the revolving discussion window!!!

Also, Google does have a hashtag feature, where it takes the most predominant word in your phrase, and pushes it up in a forum for that specific word.  For example, "The Supermarket Guy", pushes the word Supermarket into a forum that has this hashtag.  But you guys already know about this!  I am such an internet weakling!

Well, besides that I am just playing the waiting game. Waiting for the book to be released... A month and a few days 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"
