When others critique your work

When talking to people, about your work, the one thing that will stand out with everybody out there is "You are not selling. Obviously you are doing something wrong. Change it. You got to change it. Make it more edgy. Racy, Something. Change it" 

I said "You should become my literary agent. Or literal agent. I said, if I had you, I would probably do pretty good" 

Truth being- we cannot dissect, we cannot extrapolate, peoples wants, peoples trending fashions from one year to the other.

No doubt, there is a time to rest. After Part 5, I will rest. For those who love my works, that will be a tragic time. For those who hate my works, they will revel and parade in the streets and bang on that shitty tamborine.... lol

But, Frank Sinatra said it best- "I did it my way". So, with few regrets just like in the song, I will produce part 5 but probably in the fall. Depends on health, family, and other things as I thought I would have this thing produced way back when in 2017! The blunder of results of Part 4 ( which I cannot comprehend) only makes my desire to produce Part 5 that much more difficult... But I feel it must be done...

Anyways, finally someone, one of my friends actually went negative on my books. That is good. It is better than being two faced and saying "oh yep that is good and i love it".

Well, be honest when talking to a friend. Do not bs them. Be like Waylon Jennings. No b-s. Tell em straight but in a good way.

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"

The Supermarket Guy # 1 for 2017 Ebook Humor at New Apple Literary Summer Ebook Awards!

This time I finally won an award... On my second try to another contest...

Would like to thank New Apple Literary for chosing "The Supermarket Guy" # 1 in their Humor Category for their 2017 Ebook summer reading contest!

Here is the link to view :  http://www.newappleliterary.com/2017ebook/2017ebookCat12.html

Very thankful, and surprised, as usual the last few months have been relatively hard on my writing time. I had entered the book in another contest, but this contest seemed to place my book at # 1.

When I went to visit the award winners list, I ultimately did not expect to see my name up there... At all. This was an incredibly, splendid surprise, and it does provide me with enough boost to finish Part 5 of "The Supermarket Guy"

Everyone needs some good news every now and then. And I truly hope whoever reads this, that you out there, can get some good news too!

Thanks to the fans, and readers, for following, and reading.
