Some of you may recall last Thursday, November 16, I was vying to become a best Selling Author on Amazon.com As I watched my book begin to move, I also noticed that OJ Simpson was ALREADY on the Top Sellers List with his "IF I DID IT" book. The book wasn't even PUBLISHED yet. Amazon was busy racking up on the pre-sale orders and they must've made quite a bit of money that day because OJ's book went all the way to the #20 spot at one point. Now unfortunately, they will have to refund alot of money because the Publisher has pulled OJ's book off the market. (What do you want to bet it will show up somewhere else--like a foreign country?)


I kept thinking to myself, "What in the world is wrong with the American public in wanting to purchase the book written by a man they were so convinced committed those two murders? Why would they want to help him gain financially? He reportedly go paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for this "theory." That just didn't make any sense to me.


But then I came to this realization:


1) American book buyers love a good murder mystery so the next time I'm having a hot flash, I'll go ballistic on the person nearest to me and blame it on the rage of a "heated moment" and then I'll write all bout it!


2) There are 38 million women going thru some form of menopause so how hard could it be to get a million---or even 5,000 of those women to go to their computers and purchase a copy of MY book? Or maybe they were all experiencing one of the symptomsAT THE SAME TIME---it's called FORGETFULNESS.


3) I was targeting the WRONG GROUP. I should've been going after baby boomer men. After all, they're the ones who have to put up with all of the crap those menopausal women dish out!


I guess I'll know better next time................................
