The Supermarket Guy 4 now in que.

The Supermarket Guy 4 is now in production mode. Should be available in 2 weeks time, but only in E book but in all formats, pretty much. Amazon, Barnes, Kobe, ect...

Problem I had all along with putting it in print, as a real paper great smelling book, was the price.

Cost of E book and Print was approximately 2400 at one place. Another place it was 1700 to 1800 Canadian dollars, approximately, and I nearly took the second option.

E books, on the other hand, are cheap to make. For a few hundred dollars, I decided on the E book route. I despised not having a printed version, but alas, when you do not sell enough, this is what happens. I never did sell enough to make up for the money I put into the last 3 books. The low cost route was the only alternative, otherwise it would have been a no go...

So, two weeks time. A cover, no spine required, no back cover. Reformatted for E books... Hope that goes ok... I heard some bad situations, and I probably am prepared for a mess coming back my …

Waterman the good but lucky fireman!

Waterman was at the firehouse checking extinguishers for their due dates, when suddenly an alarm came into the firehouse!

A call came in generating an alarm to get mobile right away to save the villages precious library of stick figure only books...

Waterman screamed at his colleagues, who were grasping the steel shiney pole that lead down to the first floor to the firetrucks "Guys, we got to get to the village library! I never understood those stick figure, picture books with no words in ' em, but I could not read either when I was a big man. I will bring my camera to shoot every page while you guys hold back the flames, if I must, to perserve the village heritage.. Heck, they say there is a stick man picture book of me swimming nude in Daytona beach while seeing my..."

Raphotilia yelled "Shut up, Waterman, and stop your audio book lecture with zero admirers about a story that no one obviously has time to listen to! Put on your helmet, your flame retardent suit, a…

Part 4 cover being assessed for go ahead.

Part 4's cover is being assessed for go ahead. Checking DPI, seeing what quality we got with it, and if the design department will not charge me an arm and a leg for a front cover that I totally drew out and designed...

We will see how it goes. So far bad luck has been with me on this journey for creating Part 4. Still finding very little time to complete, Canadian Dollar low, a book cover where I had to go to a second copying spot to get the right DPI count... After the first told me it was over 300, but was only 90...

I nearly felt like giving up this week and just throwing in the towel. It may still happen, as the process has not been committed to as of yet.

And as self publishing people, we mostly do it because of a sort of self gratification-  95 % of us are not going to sell, enough to even cover the cost of production, in my opinion...

This should be the last book. But I said that with the last one too... Well, just maybe this will be the last one... Just maybe.. If I can …
