Transparent and Innovative Fillers

If you are interested in fillers for paint, you might wish to read my article in the Dec/Jan 2011 issue of APCJ: Asia Pacific Coatings Journal, p 16, 18.

I mention food grade fillers in the article too. Food fillers help dysphagia. I am thankful for the food fillers as use them everyday for my 93 year young Mom. The thickeners make swallowing so much easier for her.

Unfortunately, per the APCJ website, the journal is nolonger free full text online and one needs to contact their subscription services.

Statistics on the Sales of the Book You Authored!

I have had this question more than once from authors interested in the sales of their books.

For book authors who wish to double check sales of their books, in addition to the figures given to them from their publisher, Nielsen Bookscan is one possible source, accessed free for those authors registered with AMAZON.

A recent article in the LA Times (Dec 9, 2010) details how and when authors may obtain the information they seek per the sales of their book.

Please note the LA Times article says the data is free for authors --

Authors, link to the LA Times web site article and let me know if the information is helpful:

Thanks in advance,
