One Flaw in Women

Morning Story and Dilbert

Vintage Dilbert – November 7, 1991

but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in..
They stand up to injustice.
They don’t take “no” for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they

Don’t we all have this problem!

Letters I have not Sent

I write them almost every day.
They always begin the same:
“To Whom it ma Concern:”
I talk of many things that come into my life
The way I would imagine them happening
Hoping the person reading them will believe
Everything is true.
Why would they think I would lie?

I write about a neighbor down the hall
Whose wife left him
Because he kept seeing clouds
On the ceiling of his rooms,
Rain falling down on everything,
Ruining the furniture,
The carpet and his marriage.

I write about the grocer
On the corner across the street
Who takes a bite out of each apple
He puts out to sell.
He thinks no one will notice.

There is a girl always dressed in green
Who skips rope night and day without stopping
As if she were a dream.
I hear her mother…

Regarding Sales…

1.) Your first book will sell 5 copies in its first month. If you’re very lucky.

2.) Your first book will sell 50 copies in its first year, if you’re even luckier.

3.) Your second book will cause your first book to sell slightly better. If it’s a sequel.

4.) If your second book isn’t a sequel, both your first and second book will sell…probably nothing.

5.) You might start seeing an uptick in your overall sales numbers…once you hit book 5 or 6.

6.) More likely, you won’t see any sales increase until you get somewhere around book 10. If you ever see a sales increase at all.

7.) You will see sales when you run ads with certain popular ad sites (like Kindle Books & Tips and Ereader News Today).

8.) Unless all of those sites are Bookbub, the sales tail won’t last but a few…
