Don't Harsh My Mallow

I made marshmallows today for the cookbook.  Don't bother.  People say they're so great, fresh and delicious.  Apparently they sell them in France from tall jars.  These tasted like Campfire Marshmallows to me.  Fresh Campfire Marshmallows.  So they won't be in the book.  It was a lot of work for nothing very spectacular.  I didn't want to write all the directions.

Is this booklette going on Kindle Select or not?  I don't know.  I thought it was.  Now I'm not feeling it.

I wish BN would come up with some kind of program similar to Kindle Select, then I would do half and half.  I wish they would do something to make it more attractive to stay there.


What else is new.  Big surprise.  First sale of the month was Pizza Princess.  Why?  It's been for sale for about 2 years and sold like 3 copies during that timeframe.  What can we glean from this?  Better cover?  Better/snappier description?

I know there's some jumping around.  There are a lot of moving pieces in this story.  Because it was a script and I didn't ditch all the scenes that maybe I should have.  Then there wouldn't have been information available the audience needs.  So yeah, it could be called flawed in that regard.  It costs 99 cents.  It's cute.  It's still well-written.  Everything I said about the cheese is correct.  Just read it without malice aforethought.  People watch the dreckiest television shows and manage not to hurl tomatoes at the set, relax with the ebooks already.
