Something more important than sales figures.

I didn't think there could be a subject more important than my sales figures. Not that I've been able to find them since Amazon KDP reports don't actually seem to be working.

  My daughter sneered at me tonight. It passed for a laugh but she's a teenager and you have to take what you can get.

   It was then that I noticed the foreign body in her mouth. After wrestling her to the floor and pinning her down. I pried open her mouth to discover a huge hunk of metal skewering her tongue. She hadn't told me because she'd had assumed (rightly) that I'd probably have slaughtered her myself.

   I know that a lot of them do it. But my daughter? It seems only yesterdays that she was an eight inch long pink that giggled a lot and smelled of chocolate and sick. I suppose I should get used to it, but it will take a long time.

   Almost finished the third novel for Amazon.

   This self publishing lark is a bit of a pain. I'm not sure I've missed anyone out. There can surely be no one else in the known world who doesn't know about my novel. I suppose I'll just have to begin again at A.


  1. Family life is something, isn't it?
    Can't wait for your third book. Impressive, 3 books in such a short time.

  2. Well actually it's not such a short time. It took me nearly three years. It would have been less than that if I'd actually applied myself and written something.

  3. Good for you, Roger. And children grow sooo fast and time is a slippery thing.

  4. Next she'll be wanting to out on her own! I'll be happy, on or about her fortieth birthday.
