Part 3's contest has done fairly well.

Part 3's contest has done fairly well. It is winding down to the last 6 days of this contest, to win a free copy of "The Supermarket Guy 3: Supermarket Dominium".

I have well over 560 contestants, which may eclipse my Part 2, which had approximately 640 contestants.  The difference here is the amount of people who have placed it for a future read. So far Part 3 has garnered 238 to read,  while my old Part 2 could only attract 80 or so people to read the middle novel.

This contest did not do as well as the others, but it averaged around the 70 % upper range in the level of books, so I think...  There is no way a self published book can do as well as the traditional paperbacks, unless you are very lucky.

I will try to look for a fall book fair of sorts, around the Atlantic Region to go to. If not, I may even try to go to the New England states to look for a book fair to sit my book down at.  This is an avenue that I did not explore yet, and it is one that I should not leave behind. With my luck, I probably missed them all.. Usually summer is the best time for a book fair, but I will have a glance around to see.

It would be nice to have a signing at the local Walmart here.. They probably would never accept me.. But, then again, my book is listed on their internet book page...

The prognosis so far is a little better for my writing career, but not totally yet. I really need an approximate thousand readers to even break even to do a Part 4. I nowhere have near close to achieving that number, in real, actual quantity. Problem lies also in the amount of readers that say they will read the book, is that they have several hundred books ahead of mine to read. Thus, it will take me several years, maybe 10 or more years, to gain any net sales... Too long of a time to wait for a small cheque to arrive at the mail..

Have to go now, my apologies for the fast writing... Just got off of night shifts...

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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
