Part 4, is still uncertain for the continuation of the series.

Was talking to some friends the other day,  as Part 4 seems to be a wrench thrown into the gears. With low sales,  the advice was not sound to continue to churn out books to continue on the series. They tell me I should throw in the towel. Wave the white flag. Get some comfort food, like bacon and eggs.

With 60 % of Part 4 done, it would appear my writing has developed into a kind of airplane stall. Oddly enough, the flow of ideas from the mind were quite positive in reaching the end result to this book, but the time was not there to write much at all.

It would appear now that Part 4 could be released as a Kindle only version on Amazon, if I could get to the finishing point. It would be poorly edited, and at a low price. This is the question, I had been asking myself for the last few months. Should I put it out there as a kindle, only version, and have the benefit of the 99 cent e book sales price, and worry pas?  At 99 cents, who would care about the editing, and if people really wanted to take a glimpse into the writing style I do have, would this be the avenue to open it up? This maybe the way to proceed. To do this at 1/3 rd the price, is truly enticing.

There is one day we all wake up to the reality of things. Either your book series is too far from the mainstreams ideas of entertainment, whether it is really poor marketing skills, or a resistance from the public to try something "old" or "new" style of writing, I will never know.

Only good news to report, is that Part 3 is on Sears Books USA and Walmart Books USA on their book sites. That was a sure, great moment for this guy. Even if they take down the postings with a lack of sales, they were there. For a moment in time.

Part 4 is in stale water right now. There is no flow to it. Green, slimy algae and barnacles cover its treasure chest. Will it ever be opened for the public to see. Not sure, mateys!

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"
