Little Help Please

Hello Everybody,

As you probably know, self-published authors have a huge mountain to climb when it comes to breaking through the barriers setup by mega-publishers wanting to keep us at bay. Their collective attitude boils down to this. If you aren’t a previously published bestseller, don’t call us because we will never call you.

Okay. I’m a big boy in more ways than one and I understand that the game is rigged from the start. But miracles do happen and I refuse to give up on my dream. No, that doesn’t mean being a bestselling author; I don’t need riches or fame. All I need is enough to pay the bills and maybe take the family out once a month to a sit-down dinner.

Still, I refuse to give up but I’m not beyond asking for help. So here it is. I’m creating a video to promote PNTP and the production company wants me to get as many fresh reviews as possible. In the past, I’ve been remiss in asking for reviews because it’s hard for me to do. I don’t know why. I guess it’s just me. So anyway, now I’m asking. If you’ve already read PNTP please go to

https://www.amazon.com/Positives-Negatives-Tricycles-Pancakes-Pollack-ebook/dp/B00MZD3A98?ie=UTF8&keywords=L.%20Davyd%20Pollack&qid=1465056786&ref_=sr_1_4&sr=8-4

and tell me what you think.

If you haven’t read PNTP go to www.LDavydPollack.com . All my eBooks are priced at $1 including PNTP. You simply can’t beat the price. And just to show you that I’m not in it for the money; I’ll be willing to trade a free copy of any eBook for a review. All you have to do is go to my website contact page and ask me for one.

Thanks in advance for all your help,

Davyd

99-cent eBooks and the Flu

What do 99-cent eBooks and the Flu have in common? Well, I’ve spent the last two weeks fighting off a bad case of the Flu and no, I didn’t get a Flu shot. Turns out (according to the latest news reports), it wouldn’t have helped much anyway. At least I didn’t have to go wait in line for some stranger to poke a hole in my arm with a sharp needle and charge me twenty-five dollars for the privilege. I guess I’m ahead of the game there.

Usually what happens when I get sick, which isn’t that often, is that I get the stuffy-head, runny-nose thing going for a day or so. Followed by a sore throat for another day or so. Then the whole thing lands in my chest and after five days of trying to hack out my lungs using nothing more than my ability to cough, it’s all over and life goes on.

But this time was different. Around the fourth day, I could feel that something wasn’t right. The effects of this Flu Bug were more intense, more determined to take me down than ever before. On the fifth day, it was even worse, so much so, that I told my girlfriend. On the seventh day, it was so bad that my girlfriend took half a day off from work to take me to the doctor. This is very important because I’m one of those guys who never goes to the doctor. Either I get better on my own, or I get so bad that someone else has to take me. What can I say . . . I was in no shape to drive.

Ultimately, by the time I saw the doctor I didn’t have the Flu anymore. That, I was able to beat on my own. The acute bilateral Bronchitis, Sinusitis, Otitis (ear infection), fever, and overall feeling of shit that the Flu left in its wake, was  a different story. Apparently, one antibiotic wasn’t going to be enough to vanquish this demonic plague. To win this battle, I was going to need two.

Good news, I’m over the hump and on the downside coasting to a full recovery. I was even able to refrain from coughing long enough to write this post. Hooray me! And because I’m in such a good mood, I’ve decided to pay it forward, just a little.

Starting, January 17th, all eBooks at www.LDavydPollack.com are available for download at just 99 cents each. What a deal! What a steal! Get it while the getting is good because this offer won’t last long. Just go to my website and follow the links. Who knows how long the mood will last . . . or maybe I’m still delirious?

Feverishly at Work

It’s the week before Christmas and I’ve been feverishly at work trying to get the print version of “Positives & Negatives, Tricycles & Pancakes,” ready for publishing. Being new in the business, I thought it would be easy. I assumed, and I think not unreasonably so, that with a fully edited and published eBook, the print book would be a piece of cake. Just upload the file and click print, right? Oh contraire . . .

Maybe it was because I published electronically first, then went to print, or maybe it was just naiveté (probably the later), but print books require a completely different set of formatting techniques to obtain a good, professional looking product. What presents well on a reader looks terrible on a page, and vice-versa. Everything from fonts, to headers, to page numbers, to cover art, even front matter, are all handled differently. And I had to learn it one mistake at a time.

Well. It was a tough row to hoe but at long last, it’s done, and just in time for the holidays. Shooo! The print version of PNTP is finally available so check it out at www.LDavydPollack.com

Happy Holidays.
