The Supermarket Guy 5 passed over a rut.

The Supermarket Guy 5 has passed through a rut of sorts. A hole in the text, or a barracade on the road. For a good while, it was either I was not paying enough attention to the work as of late, but I had a hard time to pick up the pen and start writing again. I had a hard time to get to another chapter, or to get to a different section of material that would mesh everything quite well.

Some problems I am having so far is keeping the characters true to form. I need to focus more on the baby, or Harold, the main character somewhat. He is being forgotten about a little too much in the text. This happens often to me, where some text will come to me and I need to get it in the meat of the material fast, and I omit important small parts where the other characters are there, but cannot, absolutely cannot be forgotten. So, there you have it. The main character is here, but he is a baby. And grows and experiences life with some of the people around him from his past. Even one character hi in, at a time when he will meet him later on in life, for certain. Jon Acadou, playboy extraordinaire accidently meets the hero in a teenage appearance in some sort of competition. Unknowingly to Harold, he is thrust in the middle of the competition... And you can only guess what happens, after...

But the main text is coming along very well, and the only qualms I have once again is finding the time and effort to put into it.

The Supermarket Guy failed to win a humor award at Purple Dragonfly book awards for 2017. But winning one award out of three attempts is a good record, especially for a newcomer like myself. A self publishing knuckle dragger, that is for sure. Or knuckle dragging procrastinator...

Well, I may write some material today if time permits. Cold outside, nothing I can really do today.

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...
