Goodreads "Cast your your vote" for the 2013 best books!

The Goodreads "Cast your vote" for the 2013 best books awards, are now here!

The readers decide whose books will be the best of the best! What a great contest, and it is truly the readers who decide whose book is the best!

I am now preparing my winning speech as we speak. There is no doubt I will win in all the categories, except for the horses *(&  trophy category...

Alright.. So I may come in a close 1000th in the humor realm of things. This is a tough competition, and you have to be from the land of the ducks and not be bad to your monkey... To win this thing...

I do not expect to get even nominated this year... I really would not want to win an award like that, anyways. It is nice for the authors to show that they had reached the top, but once you are there, where are yeah? How can you successfully reach the pinnacle every year. If your books did not do well in the voting in the years ahead, it would make a writer feel... Maybe just a little, sad... Maybe...

Winning is not everything, as with these three books I have now proven, thus far.... Personal satisfaction is the greatest artwork of them all, and when you are personally satisfied with any achievement you make ( no matter how bad or good it turns out), then you have put your mind to rest...

Time for rest... 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"
