Part 3 hauled into the Garage again!

I placed Part 3 into the garage again. It will be taken off of the market for 2 weeks again, approximately. The reason for this was a concern of mine about the main characters unsafe actions in the back of the book. I realized that I did not focus enough on the dangers of what the main character had done, and decided to place a sentence in their underlining the main dangers specifically with what he had done.

Of course, you always hope for common sense to prevail. I think allot of authors out there put some unsafe items in their books. Unknowingly, yes. As, I only stumbled upon this detail as I read through it to the back, just over this past weekend. I know parents are smart enough to tell their teenagers what not and what to do. But, we should always reinforce their words, whenever we can, in case the teachings on safety was not done effectively enough.

Throughout many books, there are inherit dangers that are pretty obvious in what not to do or to not try at home. In this scene, I did not feel good about the way I described it. It did have some seriousness to what was happening, and some harmful results, but it did not seem to harm the main character quite enough. Mainly due to his super sheep powers he had accumulated during his zany escapades.

Now, back to the garage. Placing a warning, subtly, as to reinforce the message of safety. Should all writers think of these things before writing their works?  It is easy to be sidestepped, when in the search for a great story and forget about safety and common sense in the background? I think allot of authors do forget about safety in their books, and may need to rethink several scenes, and at least background the dialogue where it can subtly explain how dangerous certain actions can be.

And, it is not as if my book is selling hot off of the shelves... What is another two weeks in the garage?  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"
