Part 2 is all over the world.

The "Rise of the Market Overlord, Supermarket Guy 2" is world wide. I seen it in Japan, UK, Sweden, Germany, and even in my native home of Canada.

The publisher sent me my 5 free books today! To my surprise, the error still existed on the front cover page. Rise of the Market Overload. Overload?  I somehow missed out, on that title. It would have also been a trooper of a title. Oh well.

But, the fine people at my publishing house, told me it was corrected. It was just that I ordered my books before the correction took place. I made double sure, to ask again, as when I received my first 30 books the error was there. Just a few days later, and the errors still exist on my 5 freebies.

A guy at work wanted one already. He thinks it could go antiquarian, with that mistake in there. I said, the chance is there.

On the handy dandy side of things, I repaired a squeaky floor here the other day. I went down in the basement, and looked and searched for a deformed beam. They all looked straight, and even butted up against the plywood tight. I had to glance real close, to see a mm or a half of a mm space in between my floor joist and the plywood.

I asked the other half, to walk on the floor. I could hear the sound, close to where the small distance was. I did not hammer wedges in the space. It was a very, very small space. They say to use hardwood wedges, and use nail glue to make the floor squeak go away.  All I did, was get some small laminate thin wood strips, and pressed them in place with nail glue corking spread over it. I then went upstairs, and stood in the place for 5 minutes. The squeak was gone, even before I stepped on the area of squeak.

I was worried of banging in hardwood wedges, as to spread the distance further apart between the joist and plywood. For larger problems, I would use that method. But, for a small spread of a mm or a half of one, I would just use a thin wood material, and push them in with nail hold corking coated on top and bottom. They say it holds like nails, and it seems to do the job.

Have a good afternoon, till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"


The Supermarket Guy # 1 for 2017 Ebook Humor at New Apple Literary Summer Ebook Awards!

This time I finally won an award... On my second try to another contest...

Would like to thank New Apple Literary for chosing "The Supermarket Guy" # 1 in their Humor Category for their 2017 Ebook summer reading contest!

Here is the link to view :

Very thankful, and surprised, as usual the last few months have been relatively hard on my writing time. I had entered the book in another contest, but this contest seemed to place my book at # 1.

When I went to visit the award winners list, I ultimately did not expect to see my name up there... At all. This was an incredibly, splendid surprise, and it does provide me with enough boost to finish Part 5 of "The Supermarket Guy"

Everyone needs some good news every now and then. And I truly hope whoever reads this, that you out there, can get some good news too!

Thanks to the fans, and readers, for following, and reading.
