Part 4 at 60 000 words so far.

Part 4 is at 60 000 words so far, and there is approximately one scene to finish. Then, the big job of going through the grammar and spell check, cutting out some cheesy elements, or adding detail to many situations in the many hysterics that take place within the first draft.

I am very pleased with this volume of the series. It maybe, just as great as the rest of them. I feel it holds true to the series, in its zany fashion with its characters and what not. Maybe it could be the best in the total of 4 series, but each volume is very special in their own way.

Not sure right now if it will be as big as Part 3, but it could very well match it once I get into the editing and what not. Never found cleaning up the mess I created fun stuff. If you are a writer, and going through your own material not once, but twice, three times, it can be tiring and exhausting at times. And then once you send it to get edited somewhere else, it comes back, you have to go through it probably once or twice-- maybe three times, again till you are well satisfied with the end result. And if you miss something in the que, well, that is not fun to get it back once it is in print, either....

I hope I can publish this volume. It will be the final book, unless sales do happen. I had plans for a book of poetry ( humor), and a Part 1 to this volume ( a beginning through the baby years to the teenage years of the main character), and a Part 5 somewhere down the road. Maybe a part 6, so that would add up to 8 volumes if I had the ideas to continue on, bar no writing blocks.

Then after that, some different series. Expand into different areas. Maybe into horror, suspense, drama, or continue on into the humor realm. Have to see what happens after this book, should I complete it.

Hopefully I can figure a way to do it..  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"

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
