The Supermarket Guy V latest news

The Supermarket Guy V is between 1/3 done and 1/4 done. It should have been finished last fall, but the lack of interest has been dawning on me that perhaps it is a waste of time. But always in an authors heart, it is never truly so. No matter if sales are dismal, if reviews are albeit "very good" for my series, but not coming in at a steady rate, it should be completed.

The size of this book will be very similar to Part 1, plus or minus a few pages, unless things change in my mindset. I found very little reason to create a heavy Part 1, as it was just the beginning of the heroes claim to fame. An interesting start, and a revealing one also to help with the plot of Part 6. If Part 6 can ever be put to life through any miracles of sales or reviews to come. I think every author hopes to continue his series, but even Sienfeld, The Dukes of Hazzard, and Three's Company all had their time in the sun and then just had to fade away over time. Classics they were, and always will remain.

I entered Part 4 in another book contest of late. There are fewer categories, so this may mean I may totally lose. I rather it in a contest with a 'humor' genre classification, but I put it in their for fun to stir the bees nest up a little bit. I truly do not believe it will beat the other fiction genres out there with sci fi, fantasy, and romance out there... But if you do not try you cannot say you were defeated...

Well, perhaps Part 5 will come out in the fall. I have no schedule, no time frame anymore. I will just pick away at it, and hopefully it will get done... But I will try to get it done... If all things line up..

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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

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...
