Views, Reviews and Weird News
I am now officially part of the "BIG BOYS NETWORK" that means my book is no longer classed as POD, but is now in the Ingram’s Database as being part of a "Bookstore Returnability Service"
This means that where as up to now book stores have not really stocked my book, as most will not stock POD (print on demand) as they want credits back for unsold books. They can stock the book, and you can order the book from them.
Before this takes place I am also looking to correct a few errors and get a fresh version of the book available.
Following the fresh release of Across the Pond, now that it is in Ingram's several more reviews are starting to appear, more about that next week.
Here's part of one I received today
"Across the Pond coaxed smiles from me as I read about how Fred handled the many situations he found himself in--especially his often humorous struggle with the differences in language."
Bear Mugged Me For Italian Sandwich
A northwestern New Jersey man said he was mugged in his driveway by a sandwich-craving bear.
Henry Rouwendal said he was packing his car last Friday when he was hit from behind and knocked to the ground. He said the culprit was a black bear who took his Italian sandwich.
Rouwendal said he kicked the bear in the snout and throat.
He said the bruin made off with the bread, salami and other meats but left behind the lettuce, onions and tomatoes.
Vernon Township police said it's the first time a bear has attacked a person in the rural community in more than 25 years.
