New contest on Goodreads!

Part 3 has a brand spanking new contest on Goodreads.  It is doing alright so far, with 210 contestants entering in 2 and a half days. This is comparable to the first contest, only this contest is of a much shorter duration.

I am registering much less reads per contestants, as I do view most people from my past contests up there on the wall. Nearly deja vu. Much less readers, who wish to read my book.

I may just randomly go through the site myself, and just handpick some people to send some books to. I intend to buy some books next week, and just randomly give a few out to some people on Goodreads. This will get me some reviews, as I do not know otherwise how to do it fast and effectively. This is an option that was always stored in the back of my mind.

There are some authors who will often send free copies out to people on book sites in order to get some reviews. Maybe there are some who do have mailing lists, and just send them randomly like that. This is something that I have to look into more so than later.

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"
