Book taken out of production to be repaired for 4 errors.

Part 3: Supermarket Dominium was found to have 4 errors in it within the first 164 pages.

There was a few that was overlooked by the editing, and one overlooked by yours truly. I do not understand how after so many times after rereading it so often, that errors still persisted through the book. After these corrections are made, things should be nearly 99 % alright. Until other people read it and tell me about more errors, perhaps.

This is a frustrating process for me. Having the book released, and then pulled for a few errors. But, I would like the book to have the highest possible quality. It means allot to me. Now I have 15 copies of the book that have these 4 errors in them. If I do give them away, I must explain the reason why and to simply say I am sorry, and that they are perhaps antiquarian in nature. That these errors will be removed, never again to see the light of day.

When I read through it the last time during the third recheck, it appeared ok. My reading could be too fast. The spell check would have never caught a missing word, or an Apostrophe. I had to remove one word, insert 2 words into sentences, and then add an Apostrophe.

It will take another 2 weeks for the book to be sale ready now. I should get the corrected version back for a reread. More time on the back burner...

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"
